On the eighth day God noticed a problem
For there below Him stood a cowboy alone
Stubborn and proud, reckless and loud
God knew he'd never make it on his own

So God looked out all over creation
And listened as that cowboy prayed
God took passion and thunder
Patience and wonder then He sent down
The best thing that God ever made

Cowboys and angels, leather and lace
Salt of the earth meets Heavenly grace
Cowboys and angels, tested and tried
It's a long way to Heaven and one hell of a ride

Nothin's changed since the dawn of creation
For you will find them together today
And only Heaven above them knows why she loves him
But he must be the reason she don't fly away

Cowboys and angels, leather and lace
Salt of the earth meets Heavenly grace
Cowboys and angels, tested and tried
It's a long way to Heaven and one hell of a ride
It's a long way to Heaven and one hell of a ride
