Angel From Montgomery

John Prine

(Capo 2 to key of E)

 DG/BDG/BDG/BDG/B
 DG/BDG/B
 I am an old woman named after my mother
 DG/BA7D
my old man is another child that's grown old
 DG/BDG/B
 if dreams were thunder and lightning desire
 DG/BA7D
this old house would have burnt down a long time ago

 DCGD
 make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
 DCGD
 make me a poster of an old rodeo
 DCGD
 just give me one thing that I can hold on to
 DGA7DG/B
 to believe in this living is just a hard way to go

 DGDG
 when I was a young girl I had me a cowboy
 DGCD
he weren't much to look at just a free rambling man
 DGDG
 but there was a long time that no matter how I tried
 DGA7D
 the years just flow by like a broken down dam

refrain

 DGDG
 there's flies in the kitchen I can hear 'em there buzzing
 DGA7D
 and I ain't done nothing since I woke up today
 DGDG
 how the hell can a person go to work in the morning
 DGA7D
 come home in the evening and have nothing to say?

refrain
