She Came Along To Me  - Woody Guthrie

    Ten hundred books could I write you about her
    Because I felt if I could know her
    I would know all women
    And they've not been any too well known
    for brains and planning and organised thinking
    But I'm sure the women are equal
    And they may be ahead of the men

    Yet I wouldn't spread such a rumor around
    because one organises the other
    And sometimes the most lost and wasted
    attract the most balanced and sane
    And the wild and the reckless take up
    with the clocked and the timed
    And the mixture is all of us
    And we're still mixing

    But never, never, never,
    Never could have it been done
    If the women hadn't entered into the deal
    Like she came along to me

    And all creeds and kinds and colors
    of us are blending
    Till I suppose ten million years from now
    we'll all be just alike
    Same color, same size, working together
    And maybe we'll have all of the fascists
    out of the way by then
    Maybe so.
