And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show

To fight the horde, sing and cry

In her own good land here she's been abused
She's been burned, dishonored, denied an' refused
And the government for which she stands
Has scandalized throughout the land
And she's getting thread bare, and she's wearin' thin
But she's in good shape, for the shape she's in
Cause she's been through the fire before
And I believe she can take a whole lot more
