Sweet silver angels over the sea
Please come down flyin’ low for me
One time I trusted a stranger
'Cuz I heard his sweet song

And it was gently enticin’ me
Tho there was somethin’ wrong
But when I turned he was gone

Blindin’ me, his song remains remindin’ me
He’s a bandit and a heart breaker

Oh, but Jesus was a cross maker
Sweet silver angels over the sea
Please come down flyin’ low for me

He wages war with the devil
A pistol by his side
And tho he chases him out windows
And won’t give him a place to hide

He keeps his door open wide
Fightin’ him he lights a lamp invitin’ him
He’s a bandit and a heart breaker
Oh, but Jesus was a cross maker

Sweet silver angels over the sea
Please come down flyin’ low for me

I heard the thunder come rumblin’
The light never looked so dim
I see the junction git nearer’
And danger is in the wind

And either road’s lookin’ grim
Hidin’ me, I flee, desire dividin’ me
He’s a bandit and a heart breaker
Oh, but Jesus was a cross maker

Yes, Jesus was a cross maker
Sweet silver angels over the sea
Please come down flyin’ low for me
One time I trusted a stranger
'Cuz I heard his sweet song

And it was gently enticin’ me
Tho there was somethin’ wrong
But when I turned he was gone

Blindin’ me, his song remains remindin’ me
He’s a bandit and a heart breaker

Oh, but Jesus was a cross maker
Sweet silver angels over the sea
Please come down flyin’ low for me
