Angel from Montgomery (Edit) [Live at the Arie Crown Theater, Chicago, January 1985] Lyrics

Angel From Montgomery (蒙哥马利的天使) - Bonnie Raitt

I am an old woman

 

Named after my mother

 

An old man is another

 

Child who's grown old

 

If dreams were thunder

 

Lightning was desire

 

This old house it 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 on to

 

To believe in this living

 

Is just a hard way to go

 

When I was a young girl

 

I had me a cowboy

 

It wasn't much to look at

 

It was a free ramblin' man

 

There was a long time

 

No matter how I tried

 

The years they just rolled by

 

Like a broken down dance

 

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 on to

 

To believe in this living

Is just a hard way to go

 

There's flies in the kitchen

 

I can hear them there buzzin'

 

And I ain't done nothing since I woke up today

 

But how the hell can a person

 

Go on to work in the morning

 

To come home in the evening

 

And have nothing 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 on to

 

To believe in this living

Is just a hard way to go

 

To believe in this living

 

 

Is just a hard way to go
