  • Dragon tales and the water is wide
    Pirate's sail and lost boys fly
    Fish bite moonbeams every night
    And I love you

    Godspeed, little man
    Sweet dreams, little man
    Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
    Godspeed
    Sweet dreams

    The rocket racer's all tuckered out
    Superman's in pajamas on the couch
    Goodnight moon, we'll find the mouse
    And I love you

    Godspeed, little man
    Sweet dreams, little man
    Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
    Godspeed
    Sweet dreams

    God bless mommy and match box cars
    God bless dad and thanks for the stars
    God heard amen, wherever you are
    And I love you

    Godspeed, little man
    Sweet dreams, little man
    Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
    Godspeed
    Godspeed
    Godspeed

  • Dakotah from Georgetown, TxI have been a Dixie Chicks fan for pretty much all my life the they have been a group and i have been born. I mean when there Fly concert was in Austin, Texas, lets just say that is the only concert i have ever been to in my life and i am 23 almost 24 years old. well i heard this song and had to find out the meaning behind it so i researched it and comes to find out it is kind similar to my story. i sing karaoke every thursday in a little town called walburg, texas and Godspeed is a new song added to my list of songs to sing and i dedicate it to my two boys that i don't get to see or talk to. i wish i had the talent of write music i only got the talent of singing it. this was a beautiful song and i cry at the end of singing it myself everytime. thank you for giving me the chance of finding the song i have been searching for for so so so long.
  • Zoe from Windsor, CaMy uncle commited suicide last month, June 2011. We played this along with other song at his memorial service. There was so much sadness that day but I know he's in a better place.
  • Krisite Long from Saucier, MsMy best friend lost her 4 year old grandson in Oct 2009. The mother picked to play the Godspeed song at her sons wake. It was most touching song I have ever heard. It moved the 200 people who came to the wake. There was not a sound in the room. The mother walked over to the tiny casket and bowed over it and say this song in a hushed tone. 200 people sat and cried. This song expressed the feeling of the entire family and all the friends. This passing is still fresh in our minds and in our hearts. I thank you for writing this song and touching so meny lives.
