C D Em
Em                               C D
There she stands in the spotlight
Em                    C Gm
Now the music begins
D                                C D 
Her left leg won’t stop trembling
Em                        C D
But there’s nowhere to run

Em                                C D
The soldier sobbing at the station
Em                      C Gm
Is taken down to the hall
D                              C D 
He limps in late in the darkness
Em                          C D
Takes his seat in the stalls

Chorus:
Em                                               C D    
Righteous woman starts softly like a dove at dawn
Em                                                           C Gm
Righteous woman building up pressure like a slow moving storm
D                                               C D
Righteous woman giving birth to the dark unborn
Em
Righteous woman

Righteous woman

C  D   Em
Oo Oo  Ooooh
C  D   Em
Oo Oo  Ooooh
C  Gm  D
Oo Oo  Ooooh
C  D   Em
Oo Oo  Ooooh

Em                                            C D
In a blanket in a box on the hospital doorstep
Em                  C Gm
Lies a baby new born
D                                   C D 
The nurse gently picks up the bundle
Em                   C Gm
But the mother is gone

Em                           C D
In the darkness his head falls
Em                   C Gm
As the chorus arrives
D                                C D
He wakes up late in the third act
Em                  C D
To those radiant eyes

Chorus:
Em                                                   C D    
Righteous woman laying down the law getting on a glow
Em                                                    C Gm
Righteous woman surrendering to the full ecstatic flow
D                                                                    C D
Now she looks out and sees the brass buttons glinting in the tenth row
Em
Righteous woman
Em

C  D   Em
Oo Oo  Ooooh
C  D   Em
Oo Oo  Ooooh
C  Gm  D
Oo Oo  Ooooh
C  D   Em

N.C                                                      C D
Righteous woman hears the knock on her dressing room door
N.C                                                             C Gm  
She takes the note and reads it and then lets it drop to the floor 
D                                                  C D       
Now she drifts on down slowly to the backstage door 
Em
Righteous woman
Em
Righteous woman

C  D   Em
Oo Oo  Ooooh
C  D   Em
Oo Oo  Ooooh
C  Gm  D
Oo Oo  Ooooh
C  D   Em
Oo Oo  Ooooh
