Philadelphia
Written by Heidi G. Wolfson

Driving along the river drive
I give into my moody side
I feel the rocks, I feel the water
And know at once, I am your daughter
You held me close through my hardest days
And rocked me slowly on your subway
You gave me a home, gave me a name
And showed me how to heal my pain

Philadelphia, this is my song to you
To Philadelphia, I remain true, I remain true
I remain true

Walking on South St. the other day
I noticed that you changed your ways
Thought you are not like you used to be
Didn’t see the change in me
It’s true the stores and restaurants
Have changed their names and window fronts
But I still feel the comfort of that street
And know that it belongs to me

CHORUS

And now I come back to your city schools
And feel alive in the marble halls
Feel the power in every face
In every student who finds her place
I fight like hell to find the words
To give it all back to her
To cradle her in liberty
And all the strength that was given to me

CHORUS

Bridge
Am F, Am F, G D, G D, Am F

With every brick and cobblestone, I am home, I am home
With every person in your streets, I share a history
And every day that passes here, Every month and every year
I feel so much less alone and grateful to have found a home
CHORUS
