I’m a proud and thankful cowboy;

who has just passed away.

It’s hard to know but I’m happy now;

I’m now ridin’ God’s trails

High up in the sky; the horse I’m riding

don’t spook, buck or kick.

God’s stable has perfect horses

and now I have picked one.

Lord please forgive me of all my sins;

I haven’t been perfect but, who

believes in you, rides forever!

I’m coming home Agnes.

I’m coming home; please don’t be sad Friends and family.

I’ve lived a long life

going home now to be with

my first true love; Going home.

Happy Trails.
