"Angel From Montgomery"
set tempo
2nd fret
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

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

In fact the C chords in the verse should be A7 also.
