Angel From Montgomery - Previously Unreleased

This song is by Carly Simon.

I am an old woman
Named after my mother
My old man is another
Child that's grown old

If dreams were thunder
And lightnin' was desire
This old house would've burned 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 onto
To believe in this livin'
Is just 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
Well, the years they 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 onto
To believe in this livin'
Is just a hard way to go, oh, oh, no

There are flies in the kitchen
I can hear 'em there buzzin'
And I ain't done nothin'
Since I woke up today

How the hell can a person
Go to work in the mornin'
And 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 onto
To believe in this livin'
Is just a hard way to go
