lyrics

CHIMNEY CREEK ANGEL
© 2014 Britt Arnesen

Out on Chimney Creek Road I was saved by an angel with a pickup truck
From ten miles on the ridgetop she saw me out hitching and hard on my luck
Drove down all the way just to give me a break from the searing summer heat
It’s 100 in the shade and there is no shade you sure are an angel to me

Hop on back with the saddles and help me look for the cattle with your young eyes
Mine used to be better but years of the weather have worn them dry
The hot blowing sand and time’s cruel demands have taken their toll on me
With each dusty day I get closer to failing help me see what I no longer see

It’s a long way up with those burdens weighing you down
Just listen for the sound of angels

In these very mountains I’ve seen generations of people and dogs
81 years I’ve been living right here my last mule is gone
Our family has roamed on this ranch we’ve called home for 156 years
That there cemetary is where they’re all buried their angels are my company

Out on Chimney Creek Road when I needed an angel you found me there
You say I can’t take your picture because you’re not pretty; I beg to differ
You say your beauty has faded
I say youth’s over-rated you sure are an angel to me
You look like an angel; you ARE an angel; you sure are an angel to me
You look like an angel; you sure are an angel to me
