Barrel Racing Angel  Ian Tyson



[D]In the Arizona [Em]sunlight
[Em]In the Colorado [D]moonlight
[D]When she gets there it's gonna [Em]feel alright
[Em]Now she's feeling so[D] tired
[D]She got her [Bm]big bay horse
[Bm]The one she calls the [G]Rolling Sun
[G]The hard running [Em]faithful one
[Em]Out in front of all[A] the rest
[A]She's a barrel racing [D]angel
[G]Out there somewhere in the [D]west
[D]Well I wish you could've [Em]seen them
[Em]At the short go in Chey[D]enne
[D]Old Sunny's rolling like a [Em]thunderstorm
[Em]Fast as lightning on the [D]plain
[D]Now they're [Bm]tired and sore
[Bm]But they gotta [G]go some more
[G]On the road to Las [Em]Vegas
[Em]There is no place to[A] rest
[A]She's a barrel racing [D]angel
[G]Out there somewhere in the [D]west[G] [D]
[G]Cowgirls are special when they follow their dreams
[G]Every race is a brand new [D]start
[D]Some are [G]running for the sake of running
[G]Some are running from a broken [D]heart
[D]Just one thing you gotta [Em]know
[Em]You can't hold her, you gotta [D]let her go
[D]You can't catch a silho[Em]uette
[Em]She's like ice, she's like [D]fire
[D]They're gonna [Bm]fly as one
[Bm]She and [G]Rolling Sun
[G]Out among the [Em]stars
[Em]Ahead of all [A]the rest
[A]She's a barrel racing [D]angel
[G]Out there somewhere in the [D]west [G]
[G]She's a barrel racing [D]angel
[G]Out there somewhere in the [D]west
From the album All The Good'uns 1996 Stony Plain Records
