Someone saw me sleeping naked in the noon sun I laid hands upon the world And a mother from my youth [Chorus] And again, and again, and again, and again. But we will still remain I was gifted as a girl Brandi Carlile takes the verse of a refugee killed escaping Honduras; Amanda Shires sings about a woman killed in the Salem Witch Trials; special guest Yola tackles the verse about a Freedom Rider; and Natalie Hemby reflects on the difficulties of being a female preacher. In the winter, I heard the hounds and I knew I had been found We carry the sons you can only hold I was a healer [Verse 1: Brandi Carlile] The Highwomen's namesake song finds the quartet reflecting on the experiences of women throughout history. But teaching was unrighteous for a girl [Verse 3: Yola] [Chorus] When we thought the South had won I was a preacher My heart broke for all the world But teaching was unrighteous for a girl In the summer I was baptized in the mighty Colorado In the winter I heard the hounds and I knew I had been found And in my Savior's name, I laid my weapons down But I am still around We are The Highwomen Singing stories still untold We carry the sons you can only hold The bastards hung me at the Salem gallows hill I sat down on the Greyhound that was bound for Mississippi We are the daughters of the silent generations And when the shots rang out, I never heard the sound We are The Highwomen And in my Savior's name, I laid my weapons down My heart broke for all the world My family left Honduras when they killed the Sandinistas, We followed a coyote through the dust of Mexico, I heard "witchcraft" in the whispers and I knew my time had come, In the summer, I was baptized in the mighty Colorado. I was a freedom rider And they return to us as tiny drops of rain I heard "witchcraft" in the whispers and I knew my time had come Virginia in the spring of '61 And again, and again, and again, and again Every one of them except for me survived I was a Highwoman My mother asked me if that ride was worth my life I was a preacher My heart broke for all the world But teaching was unrighteous for a girl In the summer I was baptized in the mighty Colorado We followed a coyote through the dust of Mexico We'll come back again But I am living still And again, and again, and again, and again You send our hearts to die alone in foreign nations I was a preacher [Verse 2: Amanda Shires] [Verse 4: Natalie Hemby] A tribute to The Highwaymen’s title track, instead of detailing the stories of different working men, this song details the stories of powerful women fighting for what they believe in. Singing stories still untold My family left Honduras when they killed the Sandinistas And I am still alive But I am still around "Highwomen" Lyrics. Highwomen Lyrics: I was a Highwoman / And a mother from my youth / For my children, I did what I had to do / My family left Honduras when they … [Verse 5: All] For my children, I did what I had to do I was a preacher My heart broke for all the world But teaching was unrighteous for a girl In the summer I was baptized in the mighty Colorado In the winter I heard the hounds and I knew I had been found And in my Savior's name, I laid my weapons down But I am still around [Verse 5: All] We are The Highwomen Singing stories still untold But I am still around And I'll take that ride again And we'll come back again In the summer, I was baptized in the mighty Colorado
