about

Catholic Girl: Circa 1960’s; I figured the reason why I’m good at surviving adversity is due to my Catholic education. If I could survive the School Sisters of Notre Dame, I could survive most anything.

lyrics

"CATHOLIC GIRL"
(v1)
The sun shone brightly when she was young
Innocent, trusting, like other ones 
In school she learned the golden rule 
Some teachers forgot it in her school
(v2)
Catholic nuns wore black and white
Maybe to draw some Holy Light 
Forgive her Father for she has sinned 
Must punish and shame her once again 
   (chorus)
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
Were the ones she feared most
Deities, all unseen
Believe or not - no in between!
(v3)
On her way to daily to mass
Beneath St Michael she did pass 
His wings enfolded his mighty sword
Protecting dogma within church doors
(v4)
We were sinners she was told 
Yet saved through Jesus long ago 
On the cross he did die
Then rose to glory in the sky
(chorus)
(v5) 
Years went by, innocence lost
Knowledge came with a cost
Too many breaks in her heart
Where was Jesus to play his part?
(v6)
The Holy Ghost was her guide 
But this Spirit seemed to hide 
Her heart now hidden in shades of gray
But the light in her soul will not stray
