Lyrics

Riding Shotgun With The Angels

My 18-wheeler is a cussing & a smoking
Logging miles from Memphis to Hoboken
This lonely cab is closing in
Since my Chelsea's death, I find it hard to live again

14 happy years Chelsea rode up front with me
Singing country songs from L.A. to Tennessee
Harmonizing vocals with the radio all the day
She filled my life with such joy it took my breath away

Chorus:
When she sings she takes my soul to heaven
Chelsea's earned her wings in the celestial jamboree
I can feel her presence sitting right here by my side
Riding shotgun with the angels and me

Dangling from the rearview hangs a picture of my wife
Chelsea passed on Easter when Cancer took her life
We'd go (to) the Grand Ole Opry every chance that we could get
She lived her life the fullest and I have no regrets

Now Chelsea lives in heaven with the stars from long ago
I hear her singing next to me along with my radio
It soothes my soul to know she's found peace in afterlife
Hob knobbing with the country stars till wee hours of the night

CHORUS:

BRIDGE:
Chelsea sends me messages that comfort and console
Remind me of the fun we had that lives within my soul

Chorus
When she sings she takes my soul to heaven
Chelsea's earned her wings in the celestial jamboree
I can feel her presence sitting right here by my side
Riding shotgun with the angels and me
Riding shotgun with the angels and me

Well-recorded and balanced. Very nice sound, reminding me of Vince Gill. I appreciate the smooth harmonies and the dynamics. It's also nice to hear a full array of natural instruments. Excellent work overall, even though for me the song is too personal to have commercial value.

Nice song, delivery, originality and instrumentation.

Oh yeah!!! That's it!!

Awesome words, but so sad. But you made it more of a celebratory situation, and not so sad. I loved that. It is a celebration when we know our dear departed is with Jesus. I really enjoyed this song.

really nice lyrics and song. It actually beautiful nice nice nice.

Really strong open. The song's theme is undeniable, strong and relatable. Loved the line, "Riding shotgun with the angels and me. Excellent hook that will stick in my head for a long time. Unique and memorable. Nice job with this!

Nice song. Sounds top notch to me. Nice harmonies. Good mix of instruments. Nice arrangement. Great vocals. Good story.

Just missed being a real killer. The chorus is great. So is the bridge. Well sung, played and recorded.

Beautiful lyrics and lovely vocals.
