C
When you s ee her in the evening in a bright green dress
F C
Walking f ast down the hallway you might never gu ess
C G
That the l ady has a weakness she's reluctant to conf ess.
C
No, you m ight not notice when she's dancing reels
F C
That she m ade it through the airport on a s et of wheels,
G C C7-E7
And she st ill isn't certain that she likes the way that it f eels. 
F
With her l over right behind her lookin' tired but proud
C
They were wh eelin' their way through the airport crowd;
C G
And the w ay it made her feel made her want to weep out l oud.
C
'Cause they were c uttin' past the line at the TSA
F C
Asking h ealthy young people to get  out of her way
G C G7
S avin' her strength to make it through another d ay. 
C
When she h as a good day she can walk a mile
F C
D ance through the evening with grace and st yle
C G
Greet her l over at the door with a tight embrace and a sm ile;
C
Next m inute she's collapsing like she's half-way dead
F C
With a f ire in her body and an  aching head
G C C7-E7
And she'll p ay with pain and the rest of the weekend in b ed. 
F
So with her l over right beside her lookin' calm and cool
C
She walks  up to the counter feeling like a fool
C G
And tr ies to tell herself that a wheelchair's only a t ool.
C
Soon she's wh eelin' past the line at the TSA
F C
Feeling w eird watching people getting  out of her way
G C G7
But it's the  easiest journey in years to the end of the d ay. 
C
Well, her b ody is a battleground and life's a war,
F C
And she's l ost against her limits many times bef ore;
C G
But sh e's still fightin' with a few new tricks in st ore;
C
Because a wh eelchair is a weapon, not a mark of defeat
F C
And she can st ay standing longer with some t ime off her feet
G C C7-E7
The b attle isn't over, and winning will be sw eet. 
F
With her l over right behind her lookin' fierce and proud
C
They'll be c utting a swath through the airport crowd
C G
The w ay it makes her feel will make her want to laugh out l oud.
C
'Cause she'll be wh eelin' past the line at the TSA
F C
Watchin' t ough young punks scurry  out of her way
G C G7
S avin' her strength to make it through another d ay. 
G6 G C F C
Yeah, s avin' her strength--to  fight another d ay.
