Track Info

[Verse]
G C G I am an old woman named

C
After my mother.
G C My old man is another

child that's grown old.
C If dreams were lightning and

Thunder were desire
G This old house would've

C D G
burnt down a long time ago.
[Chorus]

G F Make me an angel that

C G
flies from Montgomery.

C G
An old rodeo.
F Just give me one thing that

C G
I can hold on to.
C To believe in this living is

D G C G C G C G
Just a hard way to go.
[Verse]

G C When I was a young girl

C
I had me a cowboy,
G C He wa'rn't much to look at,

C
And no matter how I try,
G C The years just flow by

D G
Like a broken-down dam.
[Chorus]

An old rodeo.

I can hold on to.

Just a hard way to go.

C
I can hear all their buzzin'

D G
Since I woke up today.
But how the hell can a

C G C
Person go to work in the morning
G C Come home in the evenin'

D G
And have nothin' to say?
[Chorus]
