John denver - Angel from montgomery

I am an old woman, named after my mother
Old man is another child that's grown old
If dreams were lightning and thunder were desire
This old house would have 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 onto
To believe in this livin' is just a hard way to go
When I was a young girl I had me a cowboy
Weren't much to look at just a free ramblin' man
But that was a long time 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 onto
To believe in this livin' is just a hard way to go
There's flies in the kitchen, I can hear em in there buzzin'
And I ain't done nothin' since I woke up today
And how the hell can a person, go to work in the mornin'
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 onto
To believe in this livin' is just a hard way to go
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 livin' is just a hard way to go
