Angel From Montgomery by lyrics:

I am an old woman
Named after my mother
My old man is another
Child who’s grown old

*********

If dreams were lightning
And thunder were desire
This old house 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
Well, I had me a cowboy
He weren’t much to look at
Just a free ramblin’ man

***********

But that was a long time
And no matter how I tried
The years just flowed by
Like a broken down dam

***********

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

***********

There’s flies in the kitchen
I can hear ’em there buzzin’
And I ain’t done nothing
Since I woke up today

***********

How the hell can a person
Go to work in the morning
Then come home in the evening
And have nothing to say?

*************

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

To believe in this livin’
Is just a hard way to go

“ANEL ROM MONTOMERY

I am an old woman named after my mother.

My old man is another child that’s grown old.

If dreams were lightning and thunder were desire

this old house would’ve burnt 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 living is just a hard way to go.

When I was a young girl I had me a cowboy,

He wa’rn’t much to look at, just a free ramblin’ man.

But that was a long time, and no matter how I try,

the years just flow by like a broken-down dam.

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 living is just a hard way to go.

There’s flies in the kitchen, I can hear all their buzzin’

but I ain’t done nothin’ since I woke up today.

But how the hell can a person go to work in the morning

come home in the evenin’ and have nothin’ to say?

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 living is just a hard way to go.
