My old man is another child that's grown old

If dreams were thunder lightning was desire
GG chord                          CC chord            DD chord         GG chord
This old house would have burnt down a long time ago

Just give me one thing that I can hold on to

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

GG chord                     CC chord             GG chord              CC chord
There's flies in the kitchen I can hear 'em there buzzing

And I ain't done nothing since I woke up today.
GG chord                   CC chord     GG chord                 CC chord 
How the hell can a person go to work in the morning
GG chord                     CC chord                DD chord         GG chord
And come home in the evening and have nothing to say?

Chorus:
GG chord           FF chord           CC chord             GG chord
Make me an angel that flies from montgomery

Make me a poster of an old rodeo
