HEAVEN
lyrics by Jared Rogerson

Green field, yellow t-shirt, French-braid in your long brown hair
Hay’s cut, baled up, now Daddy says it’s okay to run him out there
You’re nine years old, fast as you can go on the back of your gold palomino
And your little blue heeler is catching up fast, your big smile makes me laugh

You’re heaven, heaven in a picture
Time stands still, did I forget to mention
You’re heaven, the image of love
Yeah, you’re a picture of heaven

Eighteen, your field of dreams is far away from that college town
You go to work, you go to school, grown up ain’t always cool
But on Friday night, fast as you can go chasing cans at the college rodeo
And your old palomino giving all he has, it’s like you’re flying first class

You’re heaven, heaven in a picture
Time stands still, did I forget to mention
You’re heaven, the image of love
Yeah, you’re a picture of heaven

Remember this, time is a test and life is a clover leaf
In your white dress don’t you forget you’ll always be my little piece of

Heaven, heaven in a picture
Time stands still, did I forget to mention…

You’re heaven, heaven in a picture
Time stands still, did I forget to mention
You’re heaven, the image of love
Yeah, you’re a picture of Heaven

(Heaven in a picture
Time stands still) did I forget to mention

(You’re heaven, the image of love)
Yeah, you’re a picture of heaven

A fresh and compelling voice in the Western music world, Jared Rogerson’s newest album, Heaven, offers a wide variety of his lively songs and includes a few co-writes and songs by others. There are both tough and tender themes that include roads traveled, rodeo tales, working cowgirls, relationships lost and found, freedom, and the big open West. Brenn Hill makes a vocal appearance on his own “Cowboy Singer, Too,” a relevant piece about who is “cowboy enough,” well done by Rogerson (even popular poet Andy Nelson shows up on the track).

Watch the impressive promo for the album, with great images, here.

See Rick Huff’s “Best of the West” review here.
