Cowboys & Angels


My Biker sent me a text this morning, told me to look up the lyrics to a song by Dustin Lynch, Cowboys And Angels.  He felt it was perfect as our song, for anytime he wants to dance with me when we are out, and for our first dance as husband and wife at our wedding.  It kinda teared us both up…okay it DID do that, because it is absolutely perfect.

My cowboy rides the steel horse, and he calls me his angel.  The tattoo he is designing for me is a large set of angel wings that will cover most of my back, with various things worked into the feathers of the wings, dates, words and verses that are important to us.  At first glance  you will just see the feathers, but as you look closer there will be things written in them.

COWBOYS AND ANGELS – Dustin Lynch

There’s a want and there’s a need
There’s a history between
Girls like her and guys like me
Cowboys and angels
I’ve got boots and she’s got wings
I’m hell on wheels and she’s heavenly
I’d die for her and she lives for me
Cowboys and angels

Chorus
We ride side by side
A cloud of dust, a ray of light
My touch is her temptation
Her kiss is my salvation
She’s sweet, I’m wild, we’re dangerous
Cowboys and angels

I’m not sure why her path crossed mine
Accident or grand design
Maybe God just kinda likes
Cowboys and angels

Chorus
We ride side by side
A cloud of dust, a ray of light
My touch is her temptation
Her kiss is my salvation
She’s sweet, I’m wild, we’re dangerous
Cowboys and angels

There’s a want and there’s a need
There’s a history between
Girls like you and guys like me
Cowboys and angels

🙂 awesome song, isn’t it??? SO perfectly describes us!!

His ancestry is half Cherokee, and half Celtic.  Hence our wedding rings will have Celtic knots because I want to honor that.  From his Cherokee side he bears the symbol of the wolf, a leader,  teacher etc.  No doubt more ink will be had to incorporate that, though my hope is the tattoo artist can work a wolf’s head into the feathers in such a way that you don’t see it right away, but once you do you can never view the ink without seeing it.  We were at Cliffty Falls while down in Madison over the weekend and he spotted this photo, of two Timber Wolves, and said it reminds him of us.  I had to take a picture and then noticed when I pulled it up that you can see our images in it (click to enlarge the photo).

I love it and would love to have it printed and framed in the house one day.

Hopefully with a few adjustments I’m making this week, I won’t have to spend a night apart from him anymore, because it is killing me to not have his arm protectively wrapped around me while I sleep apart from him.
