About "Riding Shotgun"

 

 

I wrote this for Linda, of course.  She means so much and everything to me so it was difficult trying to corral all of my thoughts and feelings for this wonderful woman into a song.  Marshall Coats helped arrange and reign it in.

Lyrics

 

I told my Mama when I met you

I found a rare and feisty woman

We could be marooned upon the moon

And we’d get home – together we’d get home

With you riding shotgun

 

I played the fool and nearly lost us

I let us down a rocky road

We had gone so far beyond the stars

But we got home, together we got home

With you riding shotgun

 

God only knows what you see in me

A sweet ramblin’ rose with a wild tumbleweed

Two birds of a feather – together forever

We run , with you riding shotgun

 

If I go first to meet our Maker

I won’t have to fly alone

I believe your love, your energy

Will guide me home – like it’s always done

With you riding shotgun

 

God only knows what you see in me

A sweet ramblin’ rose with a wild tumbleweed

Two birds of a feather – together forever

We run , with you riding shotgun

 

Two birds of a feather – together forever in love

With you riding shotgun

From the real Author:

 

Proverbs 19:14

Houses and wealth are inherited from parents,
    but a prudent wife is from the Lord.

 

Proverbs 18:22

He who finds a wife finds what is good
    and receives favor from the Lord.

 

Proverbs 31:10
A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.
