    Tribute to flight ’93′, new lyrics to ‘Angels flying too close to the ground’ by ‘Willie Nelson’.

    If you had not have acted
    Then we would not have known you
    Angels flying too close to the ground

    And in your action…you saved many others
    Knowing you’d be gone in awhile
    Your love kept our spirits up
    As we laid you down

    We know someday…will meet again
    For love’s the greatest memory…to be found
    You ask us to remember…the lesson that you left us

    Angels flying too close to the ground

    (Piano/Instrumental Solo)

    Fly on, fly on past the speed of sound
    We’d rather see you up…We won’t let you down

    You left us cause you had to
    We will still remember…the lesson that you taught us
    Angels flying too close to the ground

    You left us cause you had to
    We will still remember…the lesson that you left us
    Angels flying too close to the ground
