Barrel Racing Angel
===================
by:  Ian Tyson
written by:  Ian Tyson - Slick Fork Music

D              Em
In the Arizona sunlight
Em              D

In the Colorado moonlight
D                              Em
When she gets there it's gonna feel alright
Em                  D

Now she's feeling so tired
D           Bm
She got her big bay horse
Bm                    G

The one she calls the Rolling Sun
G                Em
The hard running faithful one
Em                 A

Out in front of all the rest
A                     D

She's a barrel racing angel
G                          D

Out there somewhere in the west

D                        Em
Well I wish you could've seen them
Em                     D

At the short go in Cheyenne
D                          Em
Old Sunny's rolling like a thunderstorm
Em                       D

Fast as lightning on the plain
D           Bm
Now they're tired and sore
Bm             G

But they gotta go some more
G                  Em
On the road to Las Vegas
Em                  A

There is no place to rest
A                     D

She's a barrel racing angel
G                          D   G   D

Out there somewhere in the west


Bridge:
G

Cowgirls are special when they follow their dreams
G                         D

Every race is a brand new start
D        G

Some are running for the sake of running
G                              D

Some are running from a broken heart

D                        Em
Just one thing you gotta know
Em                            D

You can't hold her, you gotta let her go
D                      Em
You can't catch a silhouette
Em                         D

She's like ice, she's like fire
D             Bm
They're gonna fly as one
Bm      G

She and Rolling Sun
G             Em
Out among the stars
Em           A

Ahead of all the rest
A                     D

She's a barrel racing angel
G                          D    G

Out there somewhere in the west
G                     D

She's a barrel racing angel
G                          D

Out there somewhere in the west
