get up girl & let them know you're free

Reposted from Huffington Post -

State Radio has released a human rights-centered video for their song "Calling All Crows," also the title of their humanitarian organization that aims to end violence against women.

State Radio and Calling All Crows raised $100,000 in 2009 to provide fuel-efficient stoves to women in Darfur. This campaign allowed many of these women to remain in IDP camps, thus preventing them from becoming victims of violence in the more violent regions of Sudan.

"Calling All Crows" is the third track off State Radio's third album, "Let It Go." They're touring with the John Butler Trio this summer.


Tour dates here.



Did that go a little too fast for you? :) Here are the lyrics:

Cause I come from the land of the shaman
Where the innocent are taken to the pavement
Won’t somebody just tell them
Won’t somebody oh, won’t somebody oh oh oh oh oh...

Won’t you please look after my children
All the words that are coming from the mouths of the women
From the northland down to the rio grande
New England town to Oregon
Wont somebody oh oh oh oh oh

So we’re calling all the crows
They comin' in slow
It's gonna be a show down
Said the rebel to the revolutionary come with me
And if you feel like you are witnessing a movement
Then get up girl and let them know you're free

Cause I come from the land of the shaman
Where the world is looking up you know it's changing
Won't somebody just tell them
Won't somebody oh, won't somebody oh oh oh oh oh…

So we're calling all the crows
They comin' in slow
It's gonna be a show down
Said the rebel to the revolutionary come with me
And if you feel like you are witnessing a movement
Then get up girl and let them know you're free

Said the rebel to the rebel
I will go if you come with me
I'm tired of living in a fable
Blue sky I'd love to see
The journey must continue and does not stop in me, no
Cause the rivers wide
but with all of us we can reach from side to side
and it is here that we must all ?

So we're calling all the crows
They comin' in slow
It's gonna be a show down
Said the rebel to the revolutionary come with me
And if you feel like you are witnessing a movement
Then get up girl and let them know you're free

It's just a murder of crows
They comin' in slow
It's gonna be a show down
Said the rebel to the revolutionary follow me
And if you feel like you are witnessing a movement
Then get up girl and let them know you're free
You got to get up girl and let them know you're free
You got to get up girl and girl let them know you're free
