[Verse 1] : 
G                 C
Hey Mrs. Collins, ain't it hard
                      F
To see young Louis in that old graveyard
C      G        C
Angels laid him away

[Verse 2] : 
G                    C
Mrs. Collins weeped, Mrs. Collins moaned
     G                  F
What made her son Louis leave his home

[Chorus] : 
C          G        C
The angels laid him away
G               Dm  C
Angels laid him a   way
             Em   F
Laid him six feet under the clay
G          G        C
The angels laid him away

[Verse 3] : 
G                 C
Bob shot once and Louis shot too
          G        F
Shot poor Collins, shot him through and through
C          G        C
The angels laid him away

[Verse 4] : 
G                   C
When they heard old Louis was dead
        G              F
All the womenfolk they dressed in red

[Chorus] : 
C          G        C
The angels laid him away
G               C
Angels laid him away
         G                  F
Laid him six feet under the clay
C          G        C
The angels laid him away

[Outro] : 
G               C
Angels laid him away
                            F
Laid him six feet under the clay
C          G        C
The angels laid him away
           G
The angels laid him away
