Warrior

This is a well known and moving anthem for women. Listen to the recording – by the Wyrd Sisters. We have shifted the score to a slightly higher key. This music is stunning with its simple powerful message.

LYRICS

I was  a shy and lonely girl
with the heavens in my eyes
and as I walked along the lane
I heard the echoes of her cries

I cannot fight,
I cannot a warrior be;
It’s not my nature nor my teaching.
It is the womanhood in me.

I was a lost and angry youth
there were no tears in my eyes.
I saw no justice in my world
only the echoes of her cries.

I cannot fight,
I cannot a warrior be;
It’s not my nature nor my teaching.
It is the womanhood in me.

I am an older woman now
and I will heed my own cries
and I will a fierce warrior be
‘til not another woman dies

I can and will fight,
I can and will a warrior be;
It is my nature and my duty.
It is the sister-hood in me.
