Angel From Montgomery
I am an old woman named after my mother
My old man is another child that's grown old
If dreams were lightning thunder was desire
This old house would have burnt down a long time ago
Make me an angel that flies from montgom'ry
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
Hello In There
We had an apartment in the city,
Me and loretta liked living there.
Well, it'd been years since the kids had grown,
A life of their own left us alone.
John and linda live in omaha,
And joe is somewhere on the road.
We lost davy in the korean war,
And I still don't know what for, don't matter anymore.
When I woke up this morning, things were lookin' bad
Seem like total silence was the only friend I had
Bowl of oatmeal tried to stare me down... and won
And it was twelve o'clock before I realized
That I was havin' .. no fun
But fortunately I have the key to escape reality
And you may see me tonight with an illegal smile
It don't cost very much, but it lasts a long while
I got a friend in fremont, he sells used cars, ya know.
Well, he calls me up twice a year
Just ask me how'd it go
Pretty good, not bad, I can't complain
Actually everything is just about the same
I met a girl from venus, and her insides were lined in gold
Well, she did what she did said "how was it, kid? "
She was politely told
"pretty good, not bad, I can't complain
Sam Stone by Al Kooper
Sam Stone came home,
To his wife and family
After serving in the conflict overseas.
And in the time that he had served,
It had shattered all his nerves,
And it left a little shrapnel in his knee.
Oh, but the morphine eased the pain,
