Bridget Evans

Bridget Evans
(Judy Small)

There's a woman in Great Britain,
Bridget Evans is her name
And she's out on Greenham Common
And things will never be the same
And this is not just Bridget's fight
There's women by the score
By the hundred, by the thousand
And there'll be ten thousand more

CHO: And they're fighting for their families
     They're fighting for their friends
     And they won't stop; no they won't stop
     Till this nuclear madness ends
     Till this nuclear madness ends.'

And Bridget's left her husband and her kids at home in Wales
And she hears what people say of her,
That she's gone off the rails
And she says that men have left their wives
And marched off to their wars
And how can her fight for humankind be any lesser cause

And Bridget's been to prison
For they say she breached the peace
When she sat inside a sentry box
And sang to the police
And her song is growing louder
As it echoes off the sun
That Bridget won't leave Greenham
Till the battle has been won

CODA:     There's a woman in Great Britain,
     Bridget Evans is her name
     And she's out on Greenham Common
     and things will never be the same
