Angel From Montgomery Lyrics

Angel From Montgomery by John Prine  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Angel From Montgomery I am an old woman
named after my mother
my old man is another
child who's grown old

If dreams were thunder
lightning was desire
this old house it 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
that I can hold on to
to believe in this livin'
is just a hard way to go

When I was a young girl
I had me a cowboy
He wasn't much to look at
just a free ramblin' man
But that was a long time
no matter how I tried
the years they just rolled by
like a broken down dance

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 on to
to believe in this livin'
is just a hard way to go

There's flies in the kitchen
I can hear them there buzzin'
And I ain't done nothing since I woke up today
But how the hell can a person
go on to work in the morning
to come home in the evening
and have nothing to say

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 on to
to believe in this livin'
is just a hard way to go
