Lyrics

Maybe Jesus Was A Cowboy

While staring at the stained glass?
I closed my eyes for just a minute
Listening to the message
?bout hope, peace and love..

And the portrait in my mind?
Was a man with a restless spirit?
Standing up for was right..
And against what was wrong..
Maybe He was a cowboy..
Maybe He was a cowboy..

He was tough as a boot
Soft as the wind
Larger than life
But he reached out to the little man..

A real straight shooter..
The strong silent type.
But he spoke truth for the ages..
From a heart big as the prairie sky..
Maybe Jesus was a cowboy

And it still comes down.. To love or hate..
White hat or black hat? The choices we make?
One thing I know? In this life we live..
You get just what you give..
Who ya gonna ride with?
Maybe Jesus was a cowboy ?

He rode tall in the saddle
Under branches of palm..
Led that roundhouse in the temple
Cowboyed up?like the new sheriff in town..

He took on desert outlaws..
With the Bible and His bare hands..
Lord knows we could use him now..
In those same dusty badlands..
Maybe He was a cowboy?
Maybe Jesus was a cowboy ?


And it still comes down.. To love or hate..
White hat or black hat? The choices we make?
One thing I know? In this life we live..
You get just what you give..
Who ya gonna ride with?
Maybe Jesus was a cowboy ?

He didn?t ride off ? under a painted sunset..
It was cross ? not a lynchin..
But.. He ain?t done quite yet..

And it still comes down..
To love or hate..
White hat or black hat
The choice we have to make..
What will you do with the love.. He gives?
How you gonna choose to live..
Who ya gonna ride with?
Maybe Jesus was a cowboy ?

Who ya gonna ride with?
