A Cowboy's Prayer, Promise Land

Donahew, Casey
Rodeo's all gone from this old cowboy
He'll be leavin' friends and family here behind
In a long drought he'll be crossing over Jordan
And Jesus called him home, it was his time

And if Heaven needs a cowboy
They're gettin' the top hand
One good horse on a thousand hills
He'll be ridin' for the brand
And if the pearly gates can't hold the cattle
He'll get 'em roped and tied
I hope there's a piece of the Promised Land for cowboys when they die

Left his saddle to my sister, gave his spurs to my firstborn
And I know I should rejoice, but still my heart it has been torn
And I know he will be smilin' when he sees his dad again
And his mama with her lovin' arms will welcome him right in

And if Heaven needs a cowboy
They're gettin' the top hand
One good horse on a thousand hills
He'll be ridin' for the brand
And if the pearly gates can't hold the cattle
He'll get 'em roped and tied
I hope there's a piece of the Promised Land for cowboys when they die

And if Heaven needs a cowboy
They're gettin' the top hand
One good horse on a thousand hills
He'll be ridin' for the brand
And if the pearly gates can't hold the cattle
He'll get 'em roped and tied
I hope there's a piece of the Promised Land for cowboys when they die
I pray there's a piece of the Promised Land for cowboys when they die
I know there's a piece in the Promised Land for cowboys when they die
