your loved ones are gathered to weep. Can you face them and say with your dying
E                                    B7       E
breath that you're ready to meet the Angel of Death.

      E                              A           E                     
When The Angel of Death comes down after you. Can you smile and say
                   B7             A         E          A 
that you have been true. Can you truthfully say with your dying E breath. That 
                           B7       E
you're ready to meet  the Angel of death.
