Angel from Montgomery


I am an old woman named after my mother
My old man is another child that's grown old
If dreams were thunder and lightnin' was desire
This old house would've burned down a long time ago

Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing I can hold onto
To believe in this livin' is just a hard way to go

When I was a young girl I had me a cowboy
He weren't much to look at--just a free ramblin' man
But that was a long time--no matter how I tried
The years just flowed by like a broken down dam

Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing that I can hold onto
To believe in this livin' is just a hard way to go

There's flies in the kitchen--I can hear their buzzin'
Ain't done nothin' since I woke up today
How the hell can a person go to work in the mornin'
And come home in the evenin' and have nothin' to say

Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
You got to give me just one thing I can hold onto
To believe in this livin' is such a hard way to go
