I am an old woman named after my mother
  G           C         D             [G   Am7/G]
My old man is another child that's grown old
  G            C             G               C
If dreams were lightning and thunder was desire

This old house would have burnt down a long time ago

Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
G           F            C      [G  Am7/G]

Verse 2:
-------

When I was a young girl
Well, I had me a cowboy
He weren't much to look at
Just a free ramblin' man

Verse 3:
-------

But that was a long time
And no matter how I tried
The years just flowed by
Like a broken down dam

Chorus

Verse 4:
-------

There's flies in the kitchen
I can hear 'em there buzzin'
And I ain't done nothing
Since I woke up today

Verse 5:
-------

How the hell can a person
Go to work in the morning
Then come home in the evening
And have nothing to say?

Chorus
