Lyrics

Cowboys in Heaven

Written By: R Williams/BK Cummings

on a crystial clear night two young cowhands set by the camp fire light
to rest from the long day

cowboys in heaven

Written By: R Williams/ B K Cummings

[verse]
on a crystal clear night two young cowhands
set by the fire light
to rest from the long day of riding the trail
and ponder the questions of life
they wonder what comes of old cowboys
when the last roundup calls out there name
do cowboys go to heaven
or do they just ride away.

[chorus]1
are there cowboys in heaven,where do they go?
do they still get to do what they love?
do they still sing around the camp fire at night?
do still drive them old pickup trucks?
do they still dance to country music?
do they still sleep out under the stars?
do they still ride them horses in rodeo?
do they still pick them ole time guitars?

[verse]2
they heard a voice singing from nowhere
he said boys there's no doubt that they do
on silver maned horses they ride stardust trails
next to crystal clear rivers so blue
so stay on the trail,stand for what's right
cause if you are honest and you live for the truth
if you keep shooting straight they'll
open the gate for you.

[chorus]2
there are cowboys in heaven,thats where they go
and they still get to do what they love
they still sing around the camp fire at night
they still drive them old pickup trucks

[verse]3
as they turned to voice they heard singing
they saw a rider in the light of the moon
he tipped his white hat,he said happy trails
and he rode away singing this tune.

[chorus]3
there are cowboys in heaven,thats where they go
and they still get to do what they love
they still sing around the camp fire at night
they still drive them ole pickup trucks
they still dance to country music
thay still sleep out under the stars
they still love to ride in rodeo
thay still love those ole time guitars

If The Eagle Dies

Written By: R.Williams/B K.Cummings

see that eagle in the sky
is that a tear drop in his eye
wonder what would make an eagle cry
i wonder if he will survive

now his wings are groing weak
it's a struggle just to breath
you can only hear a faint heart beat
but he try's..... to fly

can we mend his broken wings
can we ever set him free
will we hear the call that freedom brings
or will he die

once he was so proud and strong
now endangered and he stands alone
will we miss him after he is gone
will we cry.... when he's gone

chorus
with all we stand to lose mounted on his wings
he fights for life and freedom with all his strength
determined to the end to save the dream
and things will never be the same
if the eagle dies

see the eagle in the cage
see the people turn away
more concerned with being entertained
so they leave him to his fate

see him try to spread his wings
hear him cry out to be free
still he holds on to his dignity
as he fades....away

now his eyes are growing dim
he moves closer to the end
with all he has he will try again
to soar high

see that eagle in the sky
is that hope that's in his eyes
don't you think it's up to you and i
to try, to try, to try.

chorus
with all we stand to lose mounted on his wings
he fights for life and freedom with all his strength
determined to the end to save the dream
and things will never be the same
if the eagle dies.
