lyrics

WOMEN IN THE WAR
Katie Dowell / Rebekah Layton / Gary Nicholson

She starts her day before she sees the sun
Evening comes and she’s not done
Cooking and cleaning paying bills
Laundry and dishes and baby spills
Making lunch and driving carpool
Get the husband to work get the kids to school
A woman’s work is never done
She closes her eyes the next day’s begun

She starts her day before she sees the sun
But this day starts with a four mile run
Puts on her armor and picks up her gun
Equipment checks and maintenance done
Mission ready lock and load
Rolling out to the danger zone

Women in the war
Really know what they’re fighting for
Freedom for her children
And a better life
She’s more than a soldier
She’s a mother and a wife
Every man can be thankful for
Women in the war

Some say are they strong enough
Can they really be that tough
Will they cry when they get hurt
But what hurts more than childbirth
They can pull the trigger and carry the weight
Take a life when that’s what it takes

A woman’s work is never done
She closes her eyes the next day’s begun
