guardian angel lyrics – templeton thompson

she could’ve p*ssed for a cowboy
the way she carried herself and that fifty pounds of leather
put it up on that pony, light as a feather
like she’d done it all her life
then she asked if i was ready
handed me the reins and we started out walkin’
up until that mornin’ she hadn’t been much on talkin’
guess it’d finally come the time
and she said
i’ve learned more from the back of a horse
than most folks ever get to know
you never really know what you’re made of
’til you ride out on your own

ooo baby don’t worry
i know you’re gonna be just fine
ooo now don’t be in a hurry
you’ll feel it when you hit your stride
don’t get rattled, sit deep in the saddle
remember to hold on tight
and never ride faster than your guardian angel can fly

i remember what she told me
it’s as clear as a bell like it was on that mornin’
kind of like a blessing and a warnin’
i’ve carried all this time
i’ll p*ss it on to my daughter
as she loads up her car and heads out of the driveway
she’ll have had enough of doin’ things my way
it’ll be her turn to fly
and i’ll say
i’ve learned more from the back of a horse
than most folks ever get to know
you never really know what you’re made of
’til you ride out on your own

ooo baby don’t worry
you know you’re gonna be just fine
ooo don’t be in a hurry
you’ll feel it when you hit your stride
don’t get rattled, sit deep in the saddle
remember to hold on tight
and never ride faster than your guardian angel can fly
ooo baby don’t worry
you know you’re gonna be just fine
ooo don’t be in a hurry
you’ll feel it when you hit your stride
don’t get rattled, sit deep in the saddle
remember to hold on tight
and never ride faster than your guardian angel can fly
don’t you ever ride faster than your guardian angel can fly
remember oh remember baby
she coulda p*ssed for a cowboy
