  • Bonnie Raitt& John Prine - Angel From Montgomery

    4:03

    I am an old woman
    Named after my mother
    My old man is another
    Child who's grown old

    If dreams were thunder
    And lightning was desire
    This old house 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 livin'
    Is just a hard way to go

    When I was a young girl
    I had me a cowboy
    He wasn't much to look at
    Just a free ramblin' man
    But that was a long time
    And no matter how I tried
    The years they just rolled by
    Like a broken down dam

    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 livin'
    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
    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 livin'
    Is just a hard way to go

  • Essential Songs: Angel From Montgomery

    13:55

    John Prine's classic, made famous by Bonnie Raitt and also recorded by Susan Tedeschi, among others. An easy song to play with a couple of twists: an intro bass note figure, some syncopated rhythms, and an irregular measure or two.

  • John Prine and Bonnie Raitt - Angel From Montgomery

    4:41

    Appears on Prine's 1971 debut album and on Raitt's 1974 Streetlights album, but this is a remix of several recordings. I claim no rights to any of the images or music in this video. All rights remain with their respective owners.
    Lyrics:

    [Mandolin intro]

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

    [Chorus:]
    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 livin' is just a hard way to go

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

    [Chorus:]
    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 livin' is just a hard way to go

    [Instrumental bridge]

    There's flies in the kitchen, I can hear 'em; they're buzzin'
    And I ain't done nothin' since I woke up today
    How the hell can a person go to work in the mornin'
    And come home in the evening and have nothin' to say?

    [Chorus:]
    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 livin' is just a hard way to go

    To believe in this livin' is just a hard way to go

    Songwriter: John Prine
    Music Producers: Arif Mardin and Jerry Ragovoy
    Video Producer: Eleanor Plant

    In an interview with American Songwriter, Prine said he got the idea for this song from a friend who wanted another song like Hello In There. The idea stuck, and Prine said, I went home and started “Angel from Montgomery” with the words, 'I am an old woman named after my mother'. I had this really vivid picture of this woman standing over dishwater with soap in her hands. I just kept that image in mind and let it pour out of that character’s heart. Years later I got asked how I could get away with writing a woman’s song first-person. and that never occurred to me because I considered myself a writer, and writers are any gender you want. You write from the [perspective of the] character and how can you go wrong?

    The lyrics are sparse, with only a few details about the main character and her husband. That was Prine's intention: I think the more the listener can contribute to the song, the better; the more they become part of the song, and they fill in the blanks. Rather than tell them everything, you save your details for things that exist, like what color the ashtray is, how far away the doorway was. So when you’re talking about intangible things like emotions, the listener can fill in the blanks and you just draw the foundation.

  • Angel from Montgomery - The Accidentals

    3:26

    ~If you see it, you believe it, you do it. This year we want to be the see it, that encourages the believe it that supports the do it.
    When we were in high school a female string duo called Moxie Strings came into our classroom and rocked out on their electric cello and violin and Katie and I decided we can do that?! That is how we became the Accidentals, which in turn altered every part of our lives. It gave a couple of shy kids the confidence to create and relate. We were inspired to play guitar by St. Vincent and Kaki King, violin by Scarlett Rivera, and write songs by SEVERAL female artists. ~

    On the strange ride home from Arkansas, we did a deep dive - listening to Bonnie Raitt belt out songs about loneliness and isolation, simultaneously making it feel like everything will be okay. That's timeless. That’s Bonnie.
    Beyond her music, Bonnie Raitt is a perfect example of hope and endurance. She had her biggest hit record with Nick of Time after 20 years in the music industry, after releasing 9 records, AFTER being dropped from Warner Bros. She toured her ass off, put out timeless tunes, and moved forward. She created new alliances, collaborated endlessly, and defined her own success.
    She founded MUSE (Musicians United for Safe Energy) and gives out tickets to non profits dedicated to environmental protection and women’s rights.
    She's on Rolling Stone's List of 100 Greatest Singers, and one of 2 women on Rolling Stone's List of 100 Greatest Guitarists (the other is Joni Mitchell).
    It wasn’t hard to decide to cover Angel from Montgomery this week. Every time I find a recording of Bonnie singing it, from the 70's to now, it’s unique to where she is in life, each performance tells a different story. We know John Prine wrote it but Bonnie put it on the map...
    Hope you all find some comfort in this. Timelessness, hope, and endurance, no matter where you are.

  • Bonnie Raitt - Angel From Montgomery

    4:02

    Long a critic's darling, singer/guitarist Bonnie Raitt did not begin to win the comparable commercial success due her until the release of the aptly titled 1989 blockbuster Nick of Time; her tenth album, it rocketed her into the mainstream consciousness nearly two decades after she first committed her unique blend of blues, rock, and R&B to vinyl. Born in Burbank, CA, on November 8, 1949, she was the daughter of Broadway star John Raitt, best known for his starring performances in such smashes as Carousel and Pajama Game. After picking up the guitar at the age of 12, Raitt felt an immediate affinity for the blues, and although she went off to attend Radcliffe in 1967, within two years she had dropped out to begin playing the Boston folk and blues club circuit. Signing with noted blues manager Dick Waterman, she was soon performing alongside the likes of idols including Howlin' Wolf, Sippie Wallace, and Mississippi Fred McDowell and in time earned such a strong reputation that she was signed to Warner Bros. Debuting in 1971 with an eponymously titled effort, Raitt immediately emerged as a critical favorite, applauded not only for her soulful vocals and thoughtful song selection but also for her guitar prowess, turning heads as one of the few women to play bottleneck. Her 1972 follow-up, Give It Up, made better use of her eclectic tastes, featuring material by contemporaries like Jackson Browne and Eric Kaz, in addition to a number of R&B chestnuts and even three Raitt originals. 1973's Takin' My Time was much acclaimed, and throughout the middle of the decade she released an LP annually, returning with Streetlights in 1974 and Home Plate a year later. With 1977's Sweet Forgiveness, Raitt scored her first significant pop airplay with her hit cover of the Del Shannon classic Runaway; its follow-up, 1979's The Glow, appeared around the same time as a massive all-star anti-nuclear concert at Madison Square Garden mounted by MUSE (Musicians United for Safe Energy), an organization she'd co-founded earlier. Throughout her career, Raitt remained a committed activist, playing hundreds of benefit concerts and working tirelessly on behalf of the Rhythm and Blues Foundation. By the early '80s, however, her own career was in trouble -- 1982's Green Light, while greeted with the usual good reviews, again failed to break her to a wide audience, and while beginning work on the follow-up, Warner unceremoniously dropped her. By this time, Raitt was also battling drug and alcohol problems as well; she worked on a few tracks with Prince, but their schedules never aligned and the material went unreleased. Instead, she finally released the patchwork Nine Lives in 1986, her worst-selling effort since her debut. Many had written Raitt off when she teamed with producer Don Was and recorded Nick of Time; seemingly out of the blue, the LP won a handful of Grammys, including Album of the Year, and overnight she was a superstar. 1991's Luck of the Draw was also a smash, yielding the hits Something to Talk About and I Can't Make You Love Me. After 1994's Longing in Their Hearts, Raitt resurfaced in 1998 with Fundamental. Silver Lining appeared in 2002, followed by Souls Alike in 2005, both on Capitol Records. A year later, a bootleg-feel live set, Bonnie Raitt and Friends, was released, featuring guest appearances from Norah Jones and Ben Harper, among others. Raitt stepped back from the life of a professional musician over the next few years as she dealt with the passing of her parents, her brother, and her best friend. The break from recording and touring was redemptive for Raitt in many ways, and she returned focused and renewed in 2012 with her first studio album in seven years, Slipstream, released on her own new Redwing label imprint. ~ Jason Ankeny & Steve Leggett, Rovi

  • Angel from Montgomery - John Prine & Bonnie Raitt

    All rights to the phenomenal artist, this is for education and scholarship.

    ♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪ I think I was four years old when John Prine & Bonnie Raitt sang this phenomenal song together in 1974 on 'Streetlights.' The lyrics suit a female singer, though there's more behind the song.

    I've heard Prine describe the woman in the song as a lonely, bored housewife whose husband doesn't pay attention to her anymore.

    I've also heard he wrote it to talk about a woman convicted of first degree murder and sitting on death row in Alabama asking for clemency in the form of an 'Angel From Montgomery.'

    Since I believe taking life is amoral, the death penalty is too broken and fallible (hundreds of exonerees because of mistaken eyewitness identifications, coerced confessions, and advances in DNA, toxicology, and forensic science), and its cost vs successful execution ratio is so weak, I like Prine's second explanation better. I hope her appellate angels at least got her death sentence commuted to life without parole...

    I played it with a capo on the first fret, experimenting with that octave range, and changing the lyrics slightly so that it's a man on death row.

    It's also a great song sans capo for a jam session if someone is sporting a C harmonica. Bonnie plays it best with a capo on the second fret and a little draw on the A string, which is a version I'll try to post later.

    LYRICS:

    I am an old woman
    Named after my mother
    My old man is another
    Child who's grown old

    If dreams were thunder
    And lightning was desire
    This old house 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 livin'
    Is just a hard way to go

    When I was a young girl
    I had me a cowboy
    He wasn't much to look at
    Just a free ramblin' man
    But that was a long time
    And no matter how I tried
    The years they just rolled by
    Like a broken down dam

    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 livin'
    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
    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 livin'
    Is just a hard way to go
