ANGEL FROM MONTGOMERY G C G C I am an old woman named after my mother. G C D G My old man is another child that's grown old. C G C If dreams were thunder and lightning was desire G C D G this old house would've burnt down a long time ago. CHORUS G F C G Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery. F C G Make me a poster of an old rodeo. F C G Just give me one thing that I can hold on to. F C G C G C To believe in this living is just a hard way to go. When I was a young girl I had me a cowboy, wa'n't much to look at, just a free ramblin' man. But that was a long time, and no matter how I try, the years just flow by like a broken-down dam. (repeat chorus) There's flies in the kitchen, I can hear all their buzzin' but I ain't done nothin' since I woke up today. But how the hell can a person go to work in the morning come home in the evenin' and have nothin' to say? (repeat chorus) F C G To believe in this living is just a hard way to go.
