THE WOMAN IN YOUR LIFE
(Alix Dobkin)

The woman in your life will do what she must do
To comfort you and calm you down and let you rest now
The woman in your life, she can rest so easily
She knows everything you do
Because the woman in your life is you

The woman in your life knows simply what is true
She knows the simple way to touch, to make you whole now
The woman in your life, she can touch so easily
She knows everything you do
Because the woman in your life is you

(bridge) And who knows more about your story
About your struggles in the world
Who cares more to bless your weary shoulders than

The woman in your life, as she's trying to come through,
A woman's voice with messages, a woman's feelings
Oh, the woman in your life, she can feel so easily,
She knows everything you do
Because the woman in your life is you

And who is sure to give you courage
And who will surely make you strong
And who will bear all the joy that is coming to you
If not the woman in your life, 'coz she's someone to pursue
She's patient and she's waiting and she'll take you home now
The woman in your life, she can wait so easily
She knows everything you do
Because the woman in your life is you

I was thinking about that song yesterday, along with some others, as it seems to me that Joe Offer must be revising a women's song section for Rise up Singing. I noticed his recent threads re Who are the witches, where do they come from; I Still Ain't Satisfied, Building Bridges Between Our Divisions - and was thinking what will be next. I also thought about:

You can't kill the spirit, she is like a mountain, Old and strong, she/it goes on and on and on

God gave Noah, the rainbow sign, No more fire, it's the women next time, Women's army are marching, Oh sister don't you weep.

Oh the love of a man is a wonderful thing, A comfort so warm and so fine, But if the loving you crave, makes you his slave, Then you're selling yourself down the line. Each person must have her own work to do, Each life has its own special plan, And the woman is lost who pays a great cost to be standing behind some man

... some of this songs were in the Islington Folk Club Song Book if my memory is correct

Another song I thought of from the same Alix Dobkin album has the lines "Because she's a woman I didn't think I loved her, So unexpected we just stood and smiled..."
