Once Before I Die 
Recorded by Mickey Gilley
Written by Bobby Borchers and Mack Vickery

C G7 C
Once before I die I wanna see a honky tonk angel fly

I put a dime in that old juke box to play me a Bob Wills song
D7 G7
If that’s what it takes to get that neon angel turned on
F C Am
I’ll buy her all the drinks it takes to get her high
F C G7 C
Once before I die I wanna see a honky tonk angel fly

If honky tonk angels come from heaven I’d like to know why
D7 G7
I’ve never seen one of them spread their wings and fly through a neon sky
Well old women said that them gals down in Texas know how to get high
F C G7 C
So Willie I’m a-coming to Austin to see one of them sweet things fly

Repeat #2

F C G7 C
Once before I die I wanna see a honky tonk angel fly
