Bonnie Raitt plays it different than John Prine, here is how she plays it. I can't figure out the chord in the last part of the chorus, so I just put a ?. I just play it as a G but that's not what it is in the song. Enjoy! Standard tuning, capo 2 Intro: D G D G D G D G I am an old woman named after my mother D G C C My old man is another child thats grown old D G D G If dreams were lightning thunder was desire D G C D This old house would have burnt down a long time ago Chorus: D C G D Make me an angel that flies from montgomry 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 C ? D To believe in this living is just a hard way to go (Repeat verses and chorus as before) When I was a young girl well, I had me a cowboy He werent much to look at, just free rambling man But that was a long time and no matter how I try The years just flow by like a broken down dam. Repeat chorus: Theres flies in the kitchen I can hear em there buzzing And I aint done nothing since I woke up today. How the hell can a person go to work in the morning And come home in the evening and have nothing to say. Repeat chorus
