Bobby Plough: Music

The Devil Or An Angel

(Bobby Plough)
Robert Joseph Plough
His name in lights was shinning
Like the rhinestones on his jacket
The crowd was cheering wildly
Their star was burning bright

Living in the spotlight
Given anything he wanted
Women, wine, and danger
Riding broncos in the night

Living higher than his wildest dreams
Is it the devil or an angel?
Bringing what he needs
A spiritual connection
How can it be?
Was it the devil or an angel………

One night he drew a bad one
His name was Dino’s Devil
He never had been ridden
Though many cowboys tried

His confidence was higher
Than the depth of his ability
He was brought down in the spotlight
And all the pretty women cried

Living higher than his wildest dreams
Is it the devil or an angel?
Bringing what he needs
A spiritual connection
How can it be?
Was it the devil or an angel………

Just a simple boy from Texas
Never groomed for fame and fortune
Just a natural way with horses
And a love of the rodeo
Some how that all slipped away
With the wine and expectations
Ridding blind he left behind his soul

His back and ego shattered
No longer in the spotlight
He went back home to Texas
To find his roots and mend his soul

It turns out Dino’s Devil
Was the angel of salvation
Save the lost soul of a cowboy
By sending him back home
Was it the devil or an angel………
