  • On that very first day, the Lord sat down
    And saw fit to say let there be light
    So He can tell the daytime from the night
    And then He spoke again, we felt the wind
    Come rolling in, smelt the rain
    And soaked everything

    And then the mountains rose up
    Across the great planes
    And all the angels up in Heaven started singing
    All it's missing is pretty thing

    Let there be cowgirls for every cowboy
    Make 'em strong as any man
    Something you can't tame, she's a Mustang
    A heart beat, the harder I am
    She's got a drawl y'all
    She's the salt of the earth that rocks my world
    Let there be cowgirls, come on

    He met me back in sixty-eight
    The first time I met her I was nearly eight and she was ten
    Her name was little Kayleigh
    She was born to a farmer who was friends with my father
    I was in love with her, she had croppers on a dollar
    Thought I was in, it made me think again

    But when I turned sixteen
    I thought it couldn't get worse
    I saw her riding on a horse and fell in love so bad it hurt

    Let there be cowgirls for every cowboy
    Make 'em strong as any man
    Something you can't tame, she's a Mustang
    A heart beat, the harder I am
    She's got a drawl y'all
    She's the salt of the earth and rocks my world
    Let there be cowgirls, ooh, come on

    Ooh, let there be cowgirls
    Ooh, let there be cowgirls

    Let there be cowgirls for every cowboy
    Make 'em strong as any man
    Something you can't tame, she's a Mustang
    A heart beat, the harder I am
    She's got a drawl y'all
    She's the salt of the earth and rocks my world
    Let there be cowgirls
    Ooh, let there be cowgirls, come on Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER N CAGLE, KIM CHADWICK TRIBBLE
