I am an old woman named after my mother
My old man is another child that's grown old
If dreams were thunder and lightning was 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,
Wa'n'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
I am kind of person goes 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
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go
