Old Timey Tuesdays! It’s easy to dismiss patriotic tunes as cornball, out of touch, or overly sentimental. However, even the most familiar old songs can contain surprises. We thought we knew all the back verses to “America the Beautiful,” but we stumbled upon some obscure lyrics dating back to the turn of the 20th century that are timeless, inspiring, and noble.

LYRICS:
Oh beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountains majesty
Above the fruited plain
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea

Oh beautiful for pilgrims’ feet
Whose stern impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness
America! America!
God mend thine every flaw
Confirm thy soul in self control
Thy liberty in law

Oh beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine brave and rugged cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
Thy paths be wrought through wild of thought
On pilgrim foot and knee

Oh beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife
Who more than self their country love
And mercy more than life
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
Til souls wax fair as earth and air
And music hearted sea
From sea to shining sea

We chose this tune for this week because of the line, “Oh beautiful for pilgrims’ feet.” According to the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, as of 2017, 65.6 million people have been forcibly displaced due to persecution, conflict, violence or human rights violations. Under the leadership of She's Folks member Tyler Thompson, we’ve teamed up with Wild Earp, Praytell, Hillary Marren, Jacob Mau, Daniel Fager, Sharriese Hamilton, Stephanie Weber, and Quentin Rynbrandt, along with sponsors Bang Bang Pie & Biscuits and Half Acre Beer Company to present Fixed Abode III: A Variety Show Hosted by Tyler Thompson at the amazing Low Res Studio to raise money for GirlForward, an organization that assists refugee girls living here in Chicago. Why girls? “In conflict, girls are especially vulnerable to violence, isolation, and being kept out of school. Girls who receive resettlement in the face huge challenges: poverty, language barrier, limited or disrupted education, isolation and a trauma. But when girls succeed, everyone benefits.”

Join us this Friday, January 26 for a joyful and uplifting evening of music, story, art, food, drink, and hear from the Girls themselves. Refugees are welcome here.

All proceeds go to GirlForward.

Journey from the city to farm country and back again through folk and country music, hilarious stories, soaring harmonies, and a wry view of the folks back home with Elizabeth Morgan's She's Folks!
With our signature Story, Song, and Sass, we narratively travel our native Midwestern byways, railroads, and fields by truck, train and tractor, introducing the audience to original tunes, as well as beloved folk songs, covers, and hymns.
She's Folks! is a love letter to the country from a kid who couldn't wait to leave. Where do we belong if we walk away?
We reckon, "Home isn't the place; it's the folks."

Keep up with the folks!
