Angel From Montgomery  John Prine

(Capo 2 to key of E)

[D] [G/B] [D] [G/B] [D] [G/B] [D] [G/B] 
[D]I am an old [G/B]woman [D]named after my [G/B]mother
my [D]old man is [G/B]another [A7]child that's grown [D]old
[D]if dreams were [G/B]thunder [D]and lightning de[G/B]sire
this [D]old house would have [G/B]burnt down a[A7] long time [D]ago

[D]make me an [C]angel that [G]flies from [D]Montgomery
[D]make me a [C]poster of an [G]old rode[D]o
[D]just give me [C]one thing that [G]I can hold [D]on to
[D]to believe in this [G]living is just a [A7]hard [D]way to [G/B]go
[D]when I was a [G]young girl [D]I had me a [G]cowboy
he [D]weren't much to [G]look at just a [C]free rambling [D]man
[D]but there was a [G]long time that [D]no matter how [G]I tried
[D]the years just [G]flow by like a [A7]broken down [D]dam

[D]there's flies in the [G]kitchen [D]I can hear 'em there [G]buzzing
[D]and I ain't done [G]nothing since I [A7]woke up to[D]day
[D]how the hell can a [G]person [D]go to work in the [G]morning
[D]come home in the [G]evening and have [A7]nothing to [D]say?
