I used “Angel from Montgomery” sung by Bonnie Raitt and written by John Prine in an earlier Music Monday. The song was a recording of the very young Bonnie from the 1970s. This one is of a wiser Bonnie and John Prine from last year.
I’ve had my head in the sand for the past 17 hours or so and only became aware that John Prine is in critical condition with covid-19. I’m a writer at a loss for words. Let the music speak for itself.
Make me an angel that flies from Montgom’ry
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing that I can hold on to
To believe in this living is just a hard way to goSongwriters: John Prine
