Lyr/Chords Req: Send me an angel

Does anyone have the words to the John Prine song "Send me an Angel?" Bonnie Raitt sings it too.

Something like "Send me an angel that comes from Montgomery. Send me a picture from an old rodeo."

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
