Thanks. I found that article when I googled it before, but it doesn't tell me much. My band are thinking of learning the song, and we'd really like to know who wrote it.   If anyone has heard the song or has any other information about it, I'd love to hear it.

Well, my home schooling duties call me, so I can't follow up now. I think the actual title of the song is "Mae Frances." If I'm correct, you can find it on two Sweet Honey in the Rock albums, The Other Side and Selections 1976-88.
Rebecca, if you have the lyrics, please post them.

Mae Frances is by Bernice Johnson Reagon of Sweet Honey in the Rock. It is a passionate song. My chorus has done it; it's not as easy as it may sound.

I can't find the lyrics on line (SWITR are very clear about copyright) and don't have time tonight but will post them later if I can.

Meanwhile, you can listen to an excerpt here.

Mae Frances....thanks. I'd be grateful if you could post the lyrics, just so we can compare them with the ones we've got.

Again, thanks

Where do I go when there's no where to turn to
Feel all alone wandering why I am
Where do I go where I need familiar
Woman hold my hand

Who do I turn to when my legs get shaky
Eyes cloud over, I can't see my way
Who let's me know that I'm still walking upright
Woman hold my hand

Who laughs with me when I'm feeling silly
Who skips along dance the whole night away
Who smiles with me in my moments of pretty
Woman hold my hand

Who binds my wounds when I'm bruised and battered
By strangers and those daily walking in my life
Who lets me know that I'm more than my hurtings
Woman hold my hand

Who cries with me when I lose my baby
By accident, choice, or against my will
Who knows that I am a childless mother
Woman hold my hand

Who bids me sing when my voice is silent
Songs have left me for places unheard
Who bids me sing when all singing seems useless
Woman hold my hand
