And She Was

Lyrics

And she was lying in the grass
And she could hear the highway breathing
And she could see a nearby factory
She's making sure she is not dreaming

According to Byrne, the song was written about a girl he knew who used to take LSD in a field next to a Yoo-hoo beverage factory in Baltimore, Maryland.

I had pancakes this tuesday
When it's time to be a karaoke star...this is my go to tune...and I was...
I need to purge the poison caused by having to listen to this on commercial radio for years when I was younger. This...song. . . i s . . . O K . . .
Can listen to this over and over! -So lighthearted !

Bought the very first CD cost ????? 17.95 USD
I’d never noticed the cowbell before. Now I can’t unhear it… damn you, Pandora!
This is about a girl who did acid by a chocolate milk factory in Baltimore.

Lots of cowbell and "Hey-heys"!
When I am down, I play this song and I feel better instantly!

Brilliant lyrics.
@berzins - are you joking? It's not that hard to figure out that the song is from the 80's...just click on the album link.....jee z

I guess I need to listen to it again, I didnt notice the bell either....
My favorite song to karaoke.. although the cowbell part is a bit difficult for my range. :-)

I even didn't noticed the cow bell to be honest.
Bruce Dickinson thinks this song has what appears to be a dynamite sound.

Nothing like plenty of cow bell.
parente935
Hey guys everything sounded good but I could have used more cowbell. In fact, I have a fever and the only presciption is more cowbell.
more cowbell

Brad-- I feel the same way about TH. This is a great song to jam out to while you are in the kitchen or driving. It doesn't require a lot of thinking or analyzation, just an appreciation for the beat!

I love Talking Heads. :) The weirdness of their other most famous songs is really interesting, and I like the sound.
To oui33--- Yes, here i am. . .another fan. . a fifty-someth i n g guy who thinks "And She Was" is one of the best rock songs of all time. Just plain and simple no-nonsense rock song. . . it is probably TH's best song. The rest of their repertoire leaves me .. um. . unsatisfied. Too edgy . Too bizarre for me. "And She Was" is just . . well. . .FUN. !
One of the Top 100 songs of the 90's - And She Was...
The Heads are one of the best under-rated bands of the era! "And She Was" is a perfect example of the TH at their best.
gotta have more cowbell
oui33
Thanks sutherjames- - y o u ' v e restored my faith in humanity.
oui33
What!? Are there no other "And She Was" fans?
