This one was inspired by Gilllian Welch and Dave Rawlingson's performance at the Oscars of "When a cowboy trades his spurs for wings". Wonderful stuff.

Lyrics

when a mother first sees her newly born son
when a flower first opens to new morning sun
when a cowboy finds that old song to sing
Thats when an angel first gets her wings

When a traveler feels that first urge to go
When the sun rises over hills covered with snow
When the sparrow hollers squawks and she sings
Thats when an angel first gets her wings

When a child first finds that first touch of peace
and all of her fears find their release
When a wanderer feels the first breath of spring
Thats when an angel first gets her wings

When a young man first feels the warm flow of time
And sees mountains before him he's sure he can climb
When the wind is a whisper it floats and it sings
Thats when an angel first gets her wings
