They say I latched onto you
Like you was the last train leaving town
But you just kept on moving, boy
Left me here to live you down

Momma said she'd send a wire
And cried on the phone
Said, you'll always be my angel girl
Won't you come back home?

Well, if I was an angel I could fly over Jordan
And I wouldn't need no Greyhound to save my soul
But maybe that's a good thing 'cause I'll be home before I know
And if I was an angel I'd have a long way to go

So I got a job as a waitress
In some God forsaken place
Guess there's no choosing where you land
When you fall from grace

Well, I'm not sure what keeps me here
My shame or my fool pride
Well, neither one can give me wings
Or offer me a ride

Well, if I was an angel I could fly over Jordan
And I wouldn't need no Greyhound to save my soul
But maybe that's a good thing 'cause I'll be home before I know
And if I was an angel I'd have a long way to go

And oh, tonight I'll be dreaming
Of the cracks in the sidewalk
And a face through the window
Back to a place I belong

Well, if I was an angel I could fly over Jordan
And I wouldn't need no Greyhound to save my soul
But maybe that's a good thing cause I'll be home before I know
And if I was an angel I'd have a long way to go

Well, maybe that's a good thing 'cause I'll be home before I know
And if I was an angel I'd have a long way to go
