Song

The Girl on the Road For Monica Byrne, to the tune of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the girl upon the road.
She is walking ‘cross the ocean so her story can be told.
She has triumphed over danger for her spirit is so bold --
Yes, Meena marches on!

Glory, glory, all hail Monica!
Glory, glory, all hail Monica!
Glory, glory, all hail Monica!
Her book has won the prize.

Mariama’s in the caravan. She’s forced to flee her land.
She journeys across Africa, companions close to hand.
She heads to Ethiopia, In freedom she will stand.
Mariama marches on!

Glory, glory, all hail Monica!
Glory, glory, all hail Monica!
Glory, glory, all hail Monica!
And now she wears the crown.
Row, Row, Row Your Boat For Jo Walton, sung in rounds
