Wild Woman of the Woods

This is another song that I started by the creek in lower Bidwell Park. The muse has a strong presence there. I was just strumming Gm and C on my ukulele, and I started singing about the wild woman of the woods. I wrote the verses at home one morning about a week later, and I wasn’t sure at first if they were part of the same song. But soon I realized it all went together.

I love alliteration, and there’s a lot of it in this song. I just love singing “Crona the creatrix lives by the creek, crafting treasures for children to seek…” It’s such fun to play with words and feel their shapes in your mouth as you sing them…

This song celebrates the mystery, power, and beauty of the divine feminine. I hope you enjoy it!

Wild Woman of the Woods

Lily the litter lady lives by the lake                                      Gm       Bb        C
Picking up the messes that other people make               Gm       Bb        C
She may seem harmless, but make no mistake      Gm       Bb        C

Wild woman of the woods                                                  C          Gm        C

The wild woman of the woods                                          Gm        C
Lives just around the bend from you                              Gm        C
The wild woman of the woods                                         Gm        C
Will keep it going till the end for you                               Gm        C
Wild woman of the woods, she’s a wild one                   Gm        C
Wild woman of the woods                                               Gm        C        Gm        C

Suzanne the seamstress sews for a song
She’s mending and stitching all the day long
You might think she’s simple, but you would be wrong
She’s a wild woman of the woods
Wild woman of the woods

The wild woman of the woods lives just across the road from you
The wild woman of the woods will always find the motherlode for you
Wild woman of the woods, she’s a wild one
Wild woman of the woods

Crona the creatrix lives by the creek
Crafting treasures for children to seek
You might think she’s crazy, but wait till she speaks
She’s a wild woman of the woods
Wild woman of the woods

The wild woman of the woods wanders wild right beside you
The wild woman of the woods will even get right inside you
Wild woman of the woods, she’s a wild one
Wild woman of the woods
