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, I'm a good ol' girl an' I would like to please every way I can.
I've loved you an' I've always let you have the upper hand.
How come you think you're so smart, an' I'm the weaker sex?
There ain't a man alive can match a woman, trick for trick.

We've come a long way, baby.
All the way to Hollywood from Arkansas.
We've come a long way, baby.
Second class don't turn me on at all.

Well, I don't want to a wall to paint, but I'm a-gonna have my say.
From now on, lover-boy, it's fifty-fifty, all the way.
Up to now I've been an object made for pleasin' you.
Times have changed and I'm demanding satisfaction too.

We've come a long way, baby.
All the way to Hollywood from Arkansas.
We've come a long way, baby.
Second class don't turn me on at all.

We've come a long way, baby.
All the way to Hollywood from Arkansas.
We've come a long way, baby.
Second class don't turn me on at all.
