Angel From Montgomery

Lyrics

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

Very impressed. This is one of my favorite John Prine songs. A lot of singers have covered this song, but this is one of the best.
Strong , Very Strong
An angel from Montgomery is slang for a pardon from the governor. The lyrics appear to be describing a relationship that has become a helpless, hopeless existence.
I agree this is an all-time classic, but Susan just might do it better than anyone else.
For those of you who care, this the best song of all time and Bonnie does it well also
The words to this song make no sense, not that I could figure out anyway, but I absolutely love it. EG Kight does a good cover too.
John prine! i was just thinking of this song earlier today- it popped into my head and wouldn't go- love it!
John Denver also covered this song many many years ago. I'm thinking Tanya Tucker did also.

This gal does a great job on this tune. Another great song by John Prine. IMO he's one of the greatest and most overlooked songwriters.

I first heard this covered by Dave Matthews Band. This is probably my all time favorite song. Soulful, sad, yet comforting.
Haunting. Just the right song for the mood I'm in.
Bonnie Raitt does a very respectable version too. Bonnie also does one in a duet with Prine. It's on a Prine collection. IMHO, this one's the best of all.

This is a John Prine cover.
tears always with this one.
This is my favorite song of hers! It is a very moving song that I can completly get lost in. I love her music but she out did herself with this one!
Jenn.
