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

And then the mountains rose up, 'cross the great plains
And all the angels up in heaven started singing
All that's missing is a pretty thing

Let there be cowgirls for every cowboy
Will make them strong as any man
Lordy, somethin' you can't tame, she's a mustang
The heartbeat of the heartland
She's got a drawl y'all, yeah
She's the salt of the earth that rocks my world
Let there be cowgirls, come on

He made me back in '68
The first time I met her I was nearly 8
And she was 10, her name was little Cayleen
She was born to a father who was friends with my father
I was in love with the sharecropper's only daughter
Thought I was in, he made me think again

When I turned 16 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
Will make them strong as any man
Lordy, somethin' you can't tame, she's a mustang
The heartbeat of the heartland
She's got a drawl y'all, yeah
She's the salt of the earth that rocks my world
Let there be cowgirls, come on

Ooh, let there be cowgirls
Let there be cowgirls

Let there be cowgirls for every cowboy
Will make them strong as any man
Lordy, somethin' you can't tame, she's a mustang
The heartbeat of the heartland
She's got a drawl y'all, yeah
She's the salt of the earth that rocks my world
Let there be cowgirls
Let there be cowgirls, come on
