Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Req: Send me an angel
Subject: Lyr Add: ANGEL FROM MONTGOMERY (John Prine) ^^
Here you go:

(John Prine)
As recorded by John Prine on “John Prine” (1971)

1. I am an old woman named after my mother.
My old man is another child that's grown old.
If dreams were lightning, thunder were desire,
This old house would have burnt down a long time ago.

CHORUS: 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 living is just a hard way to go.

2. When I was a young girl, well, I had me a cowboy.
He weren't much to look at, just a free rambling man.
But that was a long time, and no matter how I try,
The years just flow by like a broken-down dam. CHORUS

3. There's flies in the kitchen; I can hear 'em there buzzin',
And I ain't done nothin' since I woke up today.
How the hell can a person go to work in the morning
And come home in the evening and have nothing to say? CHORUS
