Loretta Lynn

Loretta Lynn (née Webb; born on April 14, 1932) is an American country-music singer-songwriter and author. Born in Butcher Hollow, near Paintsville, Kentucky, USA, to a coal-miner father. At the age of 14 she married, and soon she became pregnant. She moved to Washington state with her husband, Oliver Vanetta Lynn, Jr. (1926–1996), nicknamed "Doo". Their marriage was tumultuous; he had affairs, and she was headstrong; their life together helped to inspire her music. more »

Well goodbye tubs and clothes lines goodbye pots and pans
I'm a gonna take a greyhound bus as further as I can
I ain't a gonna wash no windows and I ain't a gonna scrub no floors
And when you realize I'm gone I'm a gonna hear you roar
And you'll say hey Loretta I love you more than my Irish Setter
Hey Loretta don't leave me alone
Hey Loretta I swear I'm a gonna treat you better
Buy you brand new overalls if you'll only come back home

I work my fingers to the bone and we don't hardly speak
And all I ever get is just a little kiss about once a week
So you can feed the chickens and you can milk the cow
This a woman's liberation honey is a gonna start right now
And you'll say hey Loretta...

I'll dress up like a movie star and pretty up my hair
And no one here is a gonna know what I'll be doing there
I'll be swinging from a chandelier and bouncin' off the walls
Instead of lovin' just one man I'm a gonna love 'em all
And you'll say hey Loretta...
