Aaron Watson - That's Why God Loves Cowboys Lyrics

He wanted someone who loves the land as much as he does
Someone who knows the blessings of a good hard rain
Somebody simple and strong that he knows he can count on
Soft as the wind yet bold enough to bless his name

That's why God loves cowboys I believe there's a place in his heart
Cause when the hurt needs tending and fences need mending
He knows they'll work hard
On his great big ranch called life cause they love and take care
Of all his creations from the horses they ride
To those broken hearted honky tonk angels
Oooh oooh that's why God loves cowboys

He knew they'd need room to breathe and freedom
So he gave ‘em Texas and those big Montana skies
He was there when he heard those prayers comin' from Cheyenne
Right beside that young man on his last ride

That's why God loves cowboys I believe there's a place in his heart
Cause when the hurt needs tending and fences need mending
He knows they'll work hard
On his great big ranch called life cause they love and take care
Of all his creations from the horses they ride
To those broken hearted honky tonk angels
Oooh oooh that's why God loves cowboys

Oooh those cold nights get lonely
He needs more than just a good fire to keep him warm
Oooh there's nothing more holy
Than the love of a woman to weather life's storm

That's why God loves cowgirls, I believe there's a place in his heart
Cause when the herd needs tending and the fences needs mending
He knows they'll work hard, on his great big ranch called life
Cause they love and take care of all its creations
From the horses they ride to those broken hearted honky tonk heros
That's why God loves cowgirls
That's why God loves cowboys

    Nick Jaramillo so true. When i was tired one night i started to sing the words from that song.

  38. Nick Jaramillo

    God loves Cowboys and Us Country Boy Singers who are also Latin lovers

  39. Country Cowboy and his Pitbull

    This song is the truth. The way we live our life isn't understood to much but our horses and cows know that they are loved and our land is taken care of no matter what the weather is. Yes we might have a different understanding and ways about most things but that's life. We live a free life that we love without anyone telling us what to do. 90% of people won't come out to a working ranch thank God for that.

  40. Meagan Dekkar

  56. Tom .Lang

    I think this young man is great, I don't listen to main stream, they only play what the money people wants them to play. Radio isn't like it used to be, they played music for the listeners. Give them time they will fall, but money doesn't go down without a fight.

  71. josie c

    nice song.!!!

  72. George T

    Hey country! Don't let LA and New York determine who you listen too! And I'm from a very big city. I knew when I saw country stars start imitating Rock & Roll that they were looking for approval and compromising their values.

  73. Elrose Davis


  74. Brian Roddy

    I love Aaron watson he makes great music that I can listen to with my 5 year old grand daughter and not have to worry about changing it

  75. Hector Alvarez

    Can't wait to see him at the Houston Rodeo!

  76. Kevin Taylor

    great song!!!!

  77. Michael Bilsky

    love this song and especially him mentioning Lane Frost in the song and this will always be one of my favorite songs he sings

    Lisa Marie

    "July in Cheyenne " is all about Lane. Aaron wrote it for Lane's momma. And "Bluebonnets" is about his baby girl, Julia. He wrote it to help them heal after she died shortly after she was born. He an amazing person, good Christian and a phenomenal musician, Singer/songwriter. We love him! Blessed to have met him.

    Brendon Norris

    texascountryboy21 check out some Randy Rogers if you haven't he's a good'ol Texas boy

    Bucky Winchester holo glitter

  78. Mark Alcala

  88. Anyssa Lopez

    I don't know what you guys are talking about, he's on the radio in west Texas alllll the time

    Rylee heath

    its because hes from texas

    Connie Moody

    It's because he is from Amarillo. Texas. !!! !!!!! He is going to put the country back in country!!! Go Aaron Texas has your back.! Come see us in Dallas. Bet you can sell out Cowboys stadium. God bless you. We love our Texas troubadours!

    Charlie Woods

    You realize Texas has their own chart and are separate from the mainstream stations. There's 93 reporting stations to the Texas regional radio charts.
    Your comment is a year old but finally getting some love from mainstream radio as he had his first top 10 and first ever for an indie artist!

  89. Justin Thomas

    Holy ....just stumbled on this guy wow ,when u coming to Utah?

  90. Renard Shepherd

    coming from a black cowboy this guy is great

    Marie Halsey

    Renard Shepherd if love to have a look at you

  91. Bean Ty Tilley

    I have all of your songs on my phone on spotify but I love to listen to them on YouTube too


    there is one reason stations won't play Aaron Watson on mainstream radio with this pop crap. he would destroy the competition with his music. Aaron in my opinion is one of the best singer songwriters I have had the pleasure of listening to.

    Jason Sutton

    We don't want him on the radio. He is awesome because he is NOT on the radio. The reason all these Texas Country/Red Dirt musicians steer clear of major labels and Nashville is so they can continue to make the music THEY want to make, rather than having some suit with a mullet who has never played an instrument tell them they have to make pop country.

    Javonte Foster

    Jason isbell says hi

  93. Macey Reas

    DAD !!!

  97. Slavic N

    They won't play him on a radio because he praises the Lord in his music

    Mark Ruiz

    Frank Gonzalez Official

    They do here in Houston.

    Puppy Monkey Gaming
