      Lyrics for Matraca Berg - "If I Were An Angel"

      (Matraca Berg/Gary Harrison)

      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

      And 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
