She’s Not Just a Pretty Face

Posted on

For a long time I didn’t want anything to do with the poppy/country singer. Heard a few songs that I liked but didn’t care to know if there was a point to the music.

A few years ago out of sheer boredom I watched a special on CMT about her. I was enlightened very much. She writes her own music, writes for other artists as well. “Shania Twain” is a stage name and to her, a different person. She separates herself as much as she can from her public persona, in fact, she is the epitome of a hard luck story.

Her parents died when she was young and she began to work to support her family, and through her hard work and determination, she got to the place she is. That’s a story…definitely worth a second look.

To top it all off, she’s sassy and I like that. There is one particular song I want to share with you, because it’s powerful and I love it, and I think you will to, regardless of the genre.


“Juanita”
She is the restless river
running through my veins
She rides without the reins–
her name’s Juanita
She lives in the heart of every
woman in the world
Within the reach of every girl
who wants to meet her

(She’s gonna be ridin’ through)
Her name’s Juanita
(She’s gonna be ridiin’ free) She’s ridin’ free
(She’s gonna be inside of you, gonna be
inside of me) She’s inside of you
and inside of me, yeah

[Chorus:]
Oh, go with her–flow with her
Dream with her–scream with her
Let her take over, or just get to know her
Be everything you can be
If you can find her and free her
Juanita will unchain your heart

When someone tries to take
away the freedom of your choice
To take away your voice–
that’s when you need her
She’s there if you dare to give
your broken wings a try
C’mon and take a leap and fly,
and you can be her

(She’s gonna be ridin’ through) Oh, Juanita
(She’s gonna be ridin’ free) Ridin’ free
(She’s gonna be a part of you, gonna be a
part of me) She’s a part of you and a part
of me, yeah

[Repeat Chorus]

[Instrumental Solo]

Oh, go with her–flow with her
Dream with her–scream with her
Let her take over, or just get to know her
Be everything you can be

[Repeat Chorus]

I love the song, I think it’s incredible, as is she. I thought I’d share it with you today because it’s an uplifting song..

What do you think of it?
