Verse:
G           C       G              C
I am an old woman named after my mother
G               C        D               G
My old man is another child that's grown old
G              C       G                C 
If dreams were thunder lightning was desire
G                          C            D         G
This old house would have burnt down a long time ago

Chorus:
G           F           C             G
Make me an angel that flies from montgomery
G          F            C      G
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
G             F             C          G
Just give me one thing that I can hold on to
G                   F                D          G
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go

Verse:
G             C                  G        C
When I was a young girl well, I had me a cowboy
G                   C             D            G
He weren't much to look at, just free rambling man
G                   C        G             C    
But that was a long time and no matter how I try
G               C              D          G
The years just flow by like a broken down dam.

Chorus:
G           F           C             G
Make me an angel that flies from montgomery
G          F            C      G
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
G             F             C          G
Just give me one thing that I can hold on to
G                   F                D          G
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go

Verse:
G                     C             G              C
There's flies in the kitchen I can hear 'em there buzzing
G                 C               D      G
And I ain't done nothing since I woke up today.
G                   C     G                 C 
How the hell can a person go to work in the morning
G                     C                D         G
And come home in the evening and have nothing to say?

Chorus:
G           F           C             G
Make me an angel that flies from montgomery
G          F            C      G
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
G             F             C          G
Just give me one thing that I can hold on to
G                   F                D          G
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go

    I see you changed the site . I really don’t like how the scroll , now, does not go past the first verse. Bad! Change it back.
