  • (Dolly Parton)

    Halos and horns, sinners and saints,
    Hearts that are torn between what's wrong and ain't
    Just because it feels right does not make it so
    So we struggle through life in horns and halos

    Tempted and tried with each step we take
    We stumble and slide and make our mistakes,
    Ask God to forgive us for all of our sins,
    Then we take off our horns and wear halos again

    Halos and horns, sinners and saints,
    Hearts that are torn between what's wrong and ain't
    Just because it feels right does not make it so
    So we struggle through life in horns and halos

    Halos and horns, sinners and saints,
    We're praised or we're scorned, we either run or we faint
    Oh, but life is a challenge from the day that we're born
    Just tryin' to balance halos and horns
    It's heaven or hell, halos or horns

    Halos and horns, sinners and saints,
    Hearts that are torn between what's wrong and ain't
    But just because it feels right; well, that don't make it so
    So we struggle through life in horns or halos
    It's either horns or halos
