With blisters on her feet, she walked the road each day

Montgomery, Alabama '55

 

Singing, "Justice is going to flow down like a river

 

Our children would no longer be deprived"

 

Rosa's heart was heavy, but she would never cry

 

For her people she would stand and hold the line

 

Armed with the power of songs and simply dignity

 

She swore, "The voice that would surrender won't be mine"

 

Woman singing a freedom song,

 

Woman showing us the way

 

Rosa never took that bus, but walked on through the rain

 

She prayed for the power to make her stand alone

 

Soon voices filled the streets from the county's back rooms

 

Spirits raised by the courage of just one

 

Rosa Parks had a dream and it lifted her

 

Of simply how much better life could be

 

She lit the flame and the fire is still burning

 

Inside every heart that's longing to be free

 

Woman singing a freedom song,

 

Woman showing us the way

 

Woman singing a freedom song,

 

I'd love to hear that voice today

 

With blisters on her feet, she moved from place to place

 

Outside Dublin city '81

 

Sick and tired of being a stranger in her own home

 

Where others had their comforts, she had none

 

They gave Nan Joyce's people 48 hours

 

To leave with their belongings once againg

 

But Nan Joyce had seen enough of these evictions

 

She dreaded facing the winter's wind and rain

 

Woman singing a freedom song,

 

Woman showing us the way

 

All her life Nan faced fear and ignorance

 

Saw her loved ones turned away from countless doors

 

With ancient songs and tales around the warm fire

 

Spirits raised by the wealth of the travellers lore

 

Nan Joyce had a dream and it lifted her

 

She stood her ground and held her head on high

 

She found her voice and spoke out

So her children could be loved

 

As Irish brothers and sisters by and by

 

Woman singing a freedom song,

 

Woman showing us the way

 

Woman singing a freedom song,

 

I'd love to hear that voice today
