To Believe In This Living Is Just a Hard Way to Go

For Wednesday, this is Bonnie Raitt singing John Prine's "Angel from Montgomery." Not sure when it's from, but it's a while ago. Enjoy:

Go to work in the morning
Come home in the evening
And have nothing to say?"

Love this song.

I initially thought it was from the concert that was held in honor of Steve Goodman soon after his death; I know she played it there because it's on the album that was released afterwards, but that version's different. (It's got John Prine on it, and it's worth seeking out for that alone.)

I first heard it on John Prine's album. I love his gravelly voice croaking out that first line, "I am an old woman ..."
