To Earl December 1956 - January 2006

GOD MUST BE A COWBOY Recorded by Dan Seals

A campfire, some coffee
From a tin cup in my hand
Sure warms the fingers when it's cold ... a-playin' an old guitar
A friend I understand
Sure smoothes the wrinkles in my soul ...

A-sleepin' in the moonlight
A blanket for my bed
Leaves a peaceful feelin' in my mind
Wakin' up in the mornin' with an eagle overhead
Makes me want to fly away before my time

And I think God must be a cowboy at heart
He made wide open spaces from the start.
He made grass and trees and mountains
And a horse to be a friend
And trails to lead old cowboys home again.

Night life and big cities Is all right for awhile
Sure makes you feel good when you're there
But the country's so pretty
It goes on and on for miles
takes away my troubles and my cares

And I think God must be a cowboy at heart
He made wide open spaces from the start.
He made grass and trees and mountains
And a horse to be a friend
And trails to lead old cowboys home again.

Dearest Earl -- we hardly knew ye.
