Bill Erickson Lisa is keeping the women of soul/R&B/Blues alive and well in this modern age with her covers, and more so in her own original work. Having seen her multiple times around Austin when I'm on work gigs in the area, and ALL of her music on my playlists - she's a multiple daily dose of funky love and feeling. If you haven't seen her play the "Blonde" in a live setting, you need to fly to Austin when she is playing, such a GIANT voice in such a tiny body. Favorite track: High ON Her Perch.

about

Celebrating Women's History Month with songs I wrote in honor of women and equality for women.
Don't Give up is about inspiring hope always reaching for it and remembering that we are so much more than what we see.
Sooner or Later is a love letter to the women in my life who have endured molestation, abuse and rape.
High On Her Perch- a psychedelic soul/rock song about feminism and the power that belongs to women.
I Bet It's The Same- a Staple Singers inspired song to all of us reminding that we all do bleed the same fucking color. I know we're the same!
The Best Is Yet to Come is inspired by the social Soul songs of the late 60's and early 70's. The musical arrangement is inspired and borrowed from the great Isaac Hayes with the words from this lesbian.
The best is Yet To Come.

As a lesbian woman with big curly hair and light olive skin I know what it means to feel some snubbing in the world I live in. I also know that many times in our lives, we all have felt some kind of snubbing.
I can't speak through the eyes of anyone else's except mine.

In the brilliant words of Ruth Bader Ginsburg: “I ask no favor for my sex. All I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks”

I also want to acknowledge with appreciation all of you fabulous allies!

Track Name: Sooner Or Later
V1- Oh, burnt out paper, getting high from the wine
Oh yea sooner or later you got to step on, leave it behind
Ch- Oh my friend I see you
Through the dust and life’s disguise
Oh yea and sooner or later, your strength gonna rise And just let you be
V2- Oh to carry, such a heavy load
Trying so hard not to be buried, yes your spirit has taken it’s blows
Ch- Oh my friend I see you
Through the dust and life’s disguise
Oh yea and sooner or later, your strengths gonna rise And just let you be
Bridge- Oh don’t ever, forget That you belong
Come on lay down your burdens
Lay ‘em down Ch. out-
Track Name: High ON Her Perch
V1- You got me under your quaint little spell you sure can tell Roll roll like thunder, across the dream, across the dream Don’t hide yourself away
Chorus- High on her perch, A woman of love is at work
If her stare don’t make you back down,
she’ll give you a worm from her ground, give you a worm from her ground
V2- You got me going. Follow which way to the sky? Follow down, follow ‘round
Any way is quite alright, any way it’s quite alright, Don’t hide yourself away
Chorus
Time change:
In the years that go by so fast
You know she gave you a love to last, yes she did, she did
But oh from high on her perch she looked down on you she gave to you She gave, but now she’s gone, she’s gone away, she’s gone away

You know sometimes, sometimes life just brings on too much, too much
But you got no choice you might as well just face up try, try, try Let those little things just roll on by
You have to, oh but then she gets down on her knees and ask for it to stop just for one, just for one, one minute you see
Well there’s too much pain, there’s so much, So much to share, so much to share,
with a gust and mighty wind some day you will be free a bird on her perch,
A bird on her perch is a woman at work
Track Name: The Best Is Yet to Come
V1- MY MIND IS SPINNING, I CANʼT RELEASE MY THOUGHTS
No beginning, no , no---------
NO BEGINNING, ITʼS , WHAT ITʼS BEEN

Refrain: Hold on
HOLD ON, I KNOW THE BEST IS ABOUT TO COME HOLD ON, THE BEST IS ABOUT TO COME

V3- IʼVE BEEN WONDERINʼ, Been wonderinʼ (unison) HOW IT ALL WORKS The best, the best, the best
DO YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES BEFORE IT
SO YOU DONʼT GET HURT
No,I donʼt think so, no, no, no
I THINK NOT, I THINK ITʼS TIME YOU LET GO Let go I THINK ITʼS TIME TO TRY AND TELL YOU SO
Refrain:
Hold on -the best, I know it
HOLD ON, I KNOW THE BEST IS ABOUT TO COME HOLD ON, I KNOW THE BEST IS ABOUT TO COME
Hold on, hold on, Hold on, I know
HOLD ON, I KNOW THE BEST IS ABOUT TO COME
I know the best, I know the best, I know it HOLD ON, I KNOW THE BEST IS ABOUT TO COME
oo, oo, I know
CAN YOU FEEL IT?, COMINʼ YOUR WAY?
Can you feel it cominʼ your way, can you feel it cominʼ my way Can you feel it cominʼ your way,
IʼM HOLDING ON, I KNOW THE BEST IS ABOUT TO COME
Gonna hold on too I know the, gonna hold on too I know the Oh, Iʼm holding on
IʼM HOLDING ON, HOLDING ON, I KNOW THE BEST IS ABOUT TO COME
Holding on Can you feel it? OH,ITʼS COMING, TO YOU, TO ME ITʼS COMING, TO YOU, TO ME
I know the best is yet to come, I know the best is yet to come Hold on, hold on, hold on (2xʼs)
