about

Return of the Woman is a joyful romp from girl groups to 70s punk full of hooks, attitude and smarts. Witty and passionate with a brazen respect for the song.

Track Name: Bring Back Pete Seeger
I’m so sad about jesus
There was a time when he held my hand
I’m still looking for salvation
And a way to the promised land

Strummer’s singing on the radio
But it’s a Marley song
Says he’s looking for what I am
And it sounds like it won’t be long
But how can we find our freedom
When all we do is fight
And no one’s standing up now
To make everything alright

When they say it begins with me
Well who the fuck am I supposed to be
if I’m hard on you
It’s cuz I’m hard really hard on me
I took a look down inside
And shuttered at what was there
Like Ali I’ll fight
Cuz everything’s gotta be alright

Rise up
lift up your arms
Wise up
put down your arms

I’m so sad about jesus
There was a time when he held my hand
I’m still looking for redemption
And a way to the promised land
