Spurs hittin' the floor."

With the top let back 
and the sunshine shinin'
Spend all my time 
at Hollywood and Vine."

Grab my hand and take me dancing."

Drink with the stars
Get thrown in the mix
And tossed outta bars."

It's dust and mud
It's the white in his knuckles

It's the joy and the pain."

On paper wings."

"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."

able to take on and conquer anything 
and live in the world without the need for other people."

some bigger pieces than others."
