Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp Songbook

37 Lonely Holloway Prison

In a lonely Holloway Prison
Where the Greenham women lay
All around them doors were locking
And their sisters far away
Tell me this before I go, judge
Tell me this before I go.
Will my soul pass through our Greenham
Tell me this before I go.

Will it pass that warm camp fire?
Will it pass the plastic sheet?
When I used to spend my hours
Drowning in the mud and sleet
When you see those Greenham women
let them know and understand
That their sisters went a-singing
for to save this lovely land.
That their sisters went a-singing for to save this lovely land.
