G G C C G G C C
I am an old woman named after my mother
G G C C D7 D7 G G (C C) (G G)
My old man is another child that's grown old
G G C C G G C C
If dreams were lightning thunder was desire

This old house would have burnt down a long time ago

Chorus:
G G F F C C G G
Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery

Just give me one thing that I can hold on to

To believe in this livin' is just a hard way to go
G G C C G G C C
When I was a young girl well, I had me a cowboy
G G C C G G (C C) (G G)
He weren't much to look at, just free rambling man
G G C C G G C C
But that was a long time and no matter how I try
G G C C D7 D7 G G (C C) (G G)
The years just flow by like a broken down dam.

G G C C G G C C
There's flies in the kitchen I can hear them buzzin'
G G C C D7 D7 G G (C C) (G G)
And I ain't done nothing since I woke up today.
G G C C G G C C
How the hell can a person go to work in the mornin' (C C) (G G)

And come home in the evening and have nothing to say.
