    Angel

    Maybe I’ll become an angel

    When all my earthly work is through

    Maybe I’ll become an angel

    So I can keep watch over you

     

    I’ve always lived a hard life

    I’ve done my runnin’ round

    I’ve taken things I knew weren’t mine

    I’ve put people in the ground

     

    They say that there’s forgiveness

    For even men who live like me

    As I step into this last fight

    God’s grace is all I need

     

    Maybe I’ll become an angel

    When all my earthly work is through

    Maybe I’ll become an angel

    So I can keep watch over you

     

    And when I saw the darkest night

    Still it bore a shining star

    And If I can get myself back upright

    I know I’ll wonder where you are

     

    You’re all the hope this bad life’s shown me

    You’re every good thing that I knew

    Well I deserve whatever comes to me

    But I can’t bear not seeing you

     

    Maybe I’ll become an angel

    When all these earthly bonds are loosed

    I hope I become and angel

    So I can keep watch over you

     

    Maybe I’ll become an angel

    When all my earthly work is through

    I hope God lets me be an angel

    So I can keep watch over you

     

    I wanna be an angel

    When all my earthly work is through

    God, please let me be an angel

    I wanna keep watch over you

NOTES
Southern to the core, Jeff has recorded 'Secession', an edgy album that says,"...you don't have to take their crap - you can always secede." These tunes are funky Southern Rock with punchy guitar licks, excellent mixes and lyrics to make you think. Born and raised in South Carolina, the South has a special place in Jeff's heart. This patriotism shines through in these songs, as does his intellect regarding current international events. All of …
