"Angel From Montgomery" lyrics - BONNIE RAITT

"Angel From Montgomery"

I am an old woman
Named after my mother
An 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
It wasn't much to look at
It was a free ramblin' man
There was a long time
No matter how i tried
The years they just rolled by
Like a broken down dance


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
