Oscar The Angel
Recorded by Randy Travis
Written by Don Schlitz

G C G C
Oscar was an angel and he used to walk the streets
G F D7
Shoutin' out some prophesies at everyone he'd meet
G C G C
He was a local fixture like a cop out on a beat
G D7
Folks said he'd been shell shocked long ago
C G D7
And more than that for no one seemed to know

G C G C
Oscar was a walker at least four miles twice a day
G F D7
The entire length of Main Street he'd be shoutin' all the way
G C G C
And I had no idea where he heard the things he'd say
G D7
But he was not your normal voice of doom
C G D7
It was a happy song sung slightly out of tune

C D7 G
And he'd say everyone will die and go to heaven
C D7 C G
And we will all be angels someday
C D7 G
And what you are in this world don't count for nothin'
C G F D7
Cause we are only children we're just lost along the way
C D7 C G
But we will all be angels someday

C G C
Well I worked at the Rialto I sold tickets at the door
G F D7
And Oscar he'd come by most everyday bout half past four
G C G C
And he'd pay to see some movie that he'd seen ten times before
G D7
But mostly we'd just let him in for free
C G D7
Then he'd watch five minutes then he'd come and talk to me

Repeat #3

C G C
Well it's going on ten years now since I left my hometown
G F D7
And I went back last summer for a week I hung around
G C G C
I looked out for Oscar he was nowhere to be found

G D7
And someone said they finally had to commit him
C G D7
And he died before they had time to forget him

G C G C
Now I'm not about to argue Oscar's train had jumped the track
G F D7
But I'll bet my last dollar on the plain and simple fact
G C G C
Oscar never said a word about me behind my back
G D7
And the way that I was raised to understand
C G D7
Well that bone it makes him the better man

Repeat #3,4

C D7 C G
Yeah we will all be angels someday
