JOHN DENVER


Angels From Montgomery Lyrics

I am an old woman
Named after my mother
My old man is another
Child's that's grown old
If dreams were lightning
And thunder were desire
This house would have burned down
A long time ago

Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster from an old rodeo
Just give me one thing to hold on to
To believe in this living is a hard way to go

When I was a young girl
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 try
The years just flow by
Like a broken down dam

Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster from an old rodeo
Just give me one thing to hold on to
To believe in this living is a hard way to go

There's flies in the kitchen
I can hear 'em buzzin'
And I ain't done nothin'
Since I woke up today
How the hell can a person
Go to work in the mornin'
Come home in the evenin'
And have nothing to say

Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster from an old rodeo
Just give me one thing to hold on to
To believe in this living is a hard way to go

(repeat chorus)
