Angel From Montgomery Chords

Capo on 2nd fret
 
 
[Intro]
D  G  
x4
 
 
[Verse]
D           G      D               G
I am an old woman   named after my mother
D              G         A                 D
My old man is another   child that's grown old
D              G         D                    G
If dreams were thunder   and lightning was desire
D              G                A                 D
This old house would've burnt down a long time ago
 
 
[Chorus]
D          C           G             D
Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
D         C            G       D
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
D            C              G           D
Just give me one thing that I can hold on to
D                   G               A          D
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go
 
 
[Verse]
D           G                   D               G
When I was a young girl         I had me a cowboy
D              G                A                 D
Wasn't much to look at,         just a free ramblin' man
D           G                   D               G
But that was a long time,       and no matter how I try
D              G                A                 D
The years just flow by like       a broken-down dam
 
 
[Chorus]
D          C           G             D
Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
D         C            G       D
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
D            C              G           D
Just give me one thing that I can hold on to
D                   G               C          D
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go

D  G  x4
 
 
[Verse]
D           G                           D               G
There's flies in the kitchen, I can hear them a-buzzin'
D              G                A                 D
But I ain't done nothin' since I woke up today
D           G                   D               G
How the hell can a person go to work in the morning
D              G                A                 D
Come home in the evenin', they got nothin' to say
 
 
[Chorus]
D          C           G             D
Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
D         C            G       D
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
D            C              G           D
Just give me one thing that I can hold on to
D                   G               C          D
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go
 
 
[Outro]
D                   C               A          D
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go
