I come from the land of the shamin'
Where the innocent are taken to the pavement
Won't somebody just tell them
Won't somebody, oh
Won't somebody, oh oh oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh oh oh

Won't you please look after my children
Are the words from the mouths of the women
Some are gettin' all the wood to get the fire laid
Some are pickin' up the pieces of their last days
Won't somebody, oh oh oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

So we're callin' all the crows
They comin' up slow
It's gonna be a showdown
Said the rebel to the revolutionary, "Come with me"
And if you feel like you are witnessin' a movement
Then get up, girl, and let them know you're free, yeah

I come from the land of the shamin'
Where the world is lookin' up, you know it's changin'
Won't somebody just tell them
Won't somebody, oh
Won't somebody, oh oh oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

So we're callin' all the crows
They comin' up slow
It's gonna be a showdown
Said the rebel to the revolutionary, "Come with me"
And if you feel like you are witnessin' a movement
Then get up, girl, and let them know you're free

Said the rebel to the rebel
"I will go if you come with me
I'm tired of livin' in a fable
A real sky I long to see"
The journey must continue, it does not start or end here, no
For the river wide
But with all of us we can reach from side to side
And it is here that we must hold so dear

So we're callin' all the crows
They comin' up slow
It's gonna be a showdown
Said the rebel to the revolutionary, "Come with me"
And if you feel like you are witnessin' a movement
Then get up, girl, and let them know you're free

It's just a murder of crows
They comin' up slow
It's gonna be a showdown
Said the rebel to the revolutionary, "Follow me"
And if you feel like you are witnessin' a movement
Then get up, girl, and let them know you're free
Got to get up, girl, and let them know you're free
Got to get up, girl, and, girl, let them know you're free

    General CommentAt the concert Chad introduced this song by saying it was about letting all the women rule the world for a change since then men have had their chance and already screwed stuff up enough.

    Empowering women is actually what every 3rd world country needs though. Giving women education and social power will pretty much always raise a country's standard of living. and quickly too.
