An angel rode beside him 
This we believe was true 
What else could have saved him 
A crash only survived by few

The doe just wanted to eat
He held tight to the wheel 
As it ran across the street
The brakes let out a squeal 

The truck began to spin 
He's only seventeen 
Life has yet to begin 
Nowhere has he been

He finally comes to a halt
Wrapped around a tree 
Nothing was at fault 
How could anything be 

A voice came through 
Crying into my ear
Mom, I need you 
It's all I needed to hear 

An angel riding with him
As you can plainly see
This could've been so grim 
But he was able to flee 

An angel in that truck 
Kept my boy for me 
This wasn't just luck 
An angel was the key 

A bruise and scrape 
He was in a cocoon 
How could he escape 
Just know I love you Boone
