Lyrics

Cowboy Up

Written By: John McDermott


COWBOY UP

WELL I START MY DAY ‘FORE THE SUN COMES UP, WITH MY COFFEE ON THE WAY

TO A BACK BREAKIN TEN THAT I PUT IN, BUT THAT’S ONLY HALF MY DAY

THEN I PICK MYSELF UP OFF THE CLOCK, DUST OFF THAT DAILY GRIND

CAUSE THERE AIN’T NO STOPPIN’ TILL MY WHISTLE BLOWS AT CLOSIN’ TIME

CHORUS

COWBOY UP, OUT THAT CHUTE BY NINE

HIT THE DANCE HALL DOORS I’M BARELY ALIVE

BUT THAT HEARTBREAK HONEY TRYIN’ TO CATCH MY EYE

SHE WON’T GO FOR NO EIGHT SECOND RIDE

SO I’LL HAVE THESE BOOTS ON THE HARDWOOD FLOOR

IN TIME FOR THE NEXT GO-ROUND

COWBOY UP, WE’RE GONNA TEAR THIS HONKY TONK DOWN

I DON’T DO THIS FOR NO MONEY, AND IT CAN’T BE FOR MY PRIDE

CAUSE MY HEART’S BEEN THROWN SO MANY TIMES I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S LEFT INSIDE

BUT I’LL KEEP ON GIVIN’ ALL I GOT, THOUGH IT FEELS LIKE I CAN’T WIN

CAUSE THEY PULL THAT GATE WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN AND I’M ON MY WAY AGAIN

CHORUS

Guardians Of Angels

Written By: Rick Blair & John McDermott

GUARDIANS OF ANGELS

NEVER THOUGHT THAT I WOULD BE THAT GUY ALL AMERICAN FAMILY MAN

LITTLE LEAGUES AND PTA’S NEVER FIGURED IN MY PLANS

BUT THEN ONE DAY OUR WHOLE WORLD CHANGED WALKIN THROUGH THAT NURSERY DOOR

ONE LOOK IN THOSE TRUSTING EYES I KNEW WHAT WE WERE SENT HERE FOR (TO BE)

GUARDIANS OF ANGELS WATCHIN OVER HEAVEN’S MIRACLES

GUARDIANS OF ANGELS WITH A PURE AND PERFECT LOVE

LIVING FOR THE DREAMS THAT MAKE THEM SMILE

HOLDIN ON TO EVERY TEAR THEY CRY

GUARDIANS OF ANGELS TILL THEY SPREAD THEIR WINGS AND FLY

ABC’S AND 123’S THE DAY HAD COME AT LAST

PULLIN IN THAT PARKING LOT OH OUR HEARTS WERE BEATING FAST

BUT TENDER SMILES AND LOVING ARMS WAITED AT THAT CLASSROOM DOOR

THE CHILDREN CALL THEM TEACHERS BUT DON’T YOU KNOW THEY’RE SO MUCH MORE (THEY’RE)

GUARDIANS OF ANGELS WATCHIN OVER DADDY’S MIRACLES

GUARDIANS OF ANGELS WITH A PURE AND PERFECT LOVE

LIVING FOR THE DREAMS THAT MAKE THEM SMILE

HOLDIN ON TO EVERY TEAR THEY CRY

GUARDIANS OF ANGELS TILL THEY SPREAD THEIR WINGS AND FLY

BRIDGE ONE DAY WE’RE GONNA FEEL THAT WIND AND GIVE A GENTLE SHOVE

THEN THE CIRCLE’S COMPLETED AND WE HOLD OUR BREATH WE SAY A PRAYER

AND WE WATCH AS THEY BECOME

GUARDIANS OF ANGELS WATCHIN OVER GRANDPA’S MIRACLES

SWEAR YOU’VE GOT YOUR MOMMA’S BIG GREEN EYES

AND YOUR PARENTS’ PERFECT LOVE

LIVING FOR THE DREAMS THAT MAKE THEM SMILE

HOLDIN ON TO EVERY TEAR THEY CRY

GUARDIANS OF ANGELS TILL THEY SPREAD THEIR WINGS AND FLY

You Will

Written By: John McDermott

YOU WILL

SHE TURNED THE PAGES GENTLY, FADED BY THE HANDS OF TIME

THE MAN THERE IN THE PICTURES, HE’S GOT A SMILE THAT COULD BE MINE

BUT GRANDPA PASSED AWAY ABOUT THE TIME THAT I TURNED TWO

THOUGH I KNOW EV’RY STORY, AND EVERYTHING THAT HE COULD DO

THERE’S A MILLION THINGS I NEVER GOT TO SHOW HIM

GRANDMA SMILES WHEN I SAY “I WISH I HAD THE CHANCE TO GET TO KNOW HIM”
(SHE SAID)
YOU WILL, WHEN YOU REACH YOUR DAY OF GLORY

A LOVING CHAPTER IN THE STORY OF A LIFE THAT GOD REWARDS

YOU WILL, FIND YOUR FAMILY WAITING FOR YOU

THEY’VE BEEN RIGHT THERE BY YOUR SHOULDER AND ALWAYS WILL

YOU WILL

THEY HOLD THEIR BABY TIGHT, A LIVING ANSWER TO A PRAYER

BUT THEY JUST CAN’T HELP BUT WONDER ‘BOUT THE ONES WHO ARE NOT THERE

CAUSE TWICE BEFORE THEY TRIED TO BRING A CHILD UNTO THIS EARTH

AND TWICE BEFORE THEY CRIED WHEN THEY NEVER MADE IT TILL THEIR BIRTH

HE PULLS HER CLOSE, HE KNOWS SHE’S THINKIN’ OF THEM

SHE SMILES THROUGH THE TEARS “I NEVER EVEN HAD THE CHANCE TO LOVE THEM”
(AND HE SAID)
YOU WILL, WHEN YOU REACH YOUR DAY OF GLORY

A LOVING CHAPTER IN THE STORY OF A LIFE THAT GOD REWARDS

YOU WILL, FIND YOUR ANGELS WAITING FOR YOU

HEAVEN KNOWS HOW THEY’VE ADORED YOU AND ALWAYS WILL

YOU WILL

THE FAITH OF EVERLASTING LIFE CAN NEVER BE DENIED

AND SALVATION ISN’T ALL THAT’S WAITING ON THE OTHER SIDE

PREACHER TELLS THE STORY ‘BOUT A MAN FROM GALILEE

HOW HE BROUGHT THEM WINE FROM WATER, HOW HE DIED FOR YOU AND ME

HOW JESUS NEVER TURNED AWAY OR STOPPED TO COUNT THE COST

HOW HE PRAYED THEY’D BE FORGIVEN EVEN AS THEY NAILED HIM TO THAT CROSS

CAUSE THEY NEVER COULD DEFEAT THE LOVE INSIDE HIM

OH THE THINGS THAT I COULD LEARN IF I COULD HAVE A CHANCE TO WALK BESIDE HIM

YOU WILL, WHEN YOU REACH YOUR DAY OF GLORY

A LOVING CHAPTER IN THE STORY OF A LIFE THAT GOD REWARDS

YOU WILL, FIND YOUR SAVIOR WAITING FOR YOU

OPEN ARMS THAT LONG TO HOLD YOU AND ALWAYS WILL

YOU WILL

YOU WILL
