Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: I Gotta Find a Woman with a Chainsaw
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: I Gotta Find a Woman with a Chainsaw
I am presently at a large environmental education conference in Kananaskis, Alberta (www.trailstosustainability.ca). The song "Woman with a Chainsaw" is a perennial favourite at these gatherings. Very interesting how the folk process works: a great song gets passed on and lives, even without a readily available recording. Does Peter know the power of his song?
However, one of my colleagues here, who makes me lead the song every time we meet, says he met someone who knows Faith Petric and swears that Faith is the author.
BTW, I personally did find a woman who loves to use a chainsaw, which has proved pretty useful in our off-grid home in the Yukon!
