Lyrics: Betsy Rose.
Tune: Betsy Rose.


I’m a gray-haired woman, and I’m coming into my years.
I’m a weathered woman, and I’m coming into my years.
No more holding back, no more trying to please,
I got the will and the power to get off my knees.
I’m an aging woman, and I’m coming into my years.

I’m a streetwise woman, and I’m coming into my pride.
I’m a fight back woman, and I’m coming into my pride.
No more shrinking with fear when they whistle and jeer,
I got a fist that’s hard and a mind that’s clear.
I’m a nightwalk woman, and I’m coming into my pride.

I’m a loudmouth woman, and I’m coming into my voice.
I’m a talk back woman, and I’m coming into my voice.
There’s an ocean of words that got caught in my throat.
I’m gonna let loose the waters, gonna learn how to float.
I’m a sing out woman, and I’m coming into my voice.

I’m a fighting woman, and I’m coming into my strength.
I’m a make change woman, and I’m coming into my strength.
I won’t save the world; I won’t drain my song.
But I will fight any battle that will move us along.
I’m a far-sighted woman, and I’m coming into my strength.

I’m a loving woman, and I’m coming into my own.
I’m a heartbeat woman, and I’m coming into my own.
I will go for passion; I will go for strength.
I will go for the moment; I will go for the length.
I’m a give-take woman, and I’m coming into my own.
