Sandy Posey

Sandy Posey (born June 18, 1944) is an American popular singer, who enjoyed success in the 1960s with singles such as her 1966 recording of Martha Sharpe's composition, "Single Girl." She is often described as a country singer, although, like Skeeter Davis (to whom she has been frequently compared) her output has varied. Later in her career, the term "countrypolitan," associated with the "Nashville sound", was sometimes applied. Posey had four hit singles in the United States, three of which peaked at number 12 in the sales charts. more »

It doesn't matter if you're rich or poor
Or if you're smart or dumb
A woman's place in this old world 
Is under some man's thumb

And if you're born a woman
You're born to be hurt
You're born to be stepped on, lied to, cheated on
And treated like dirt

Ah if you're born a woman
You're born to be hurt
A woman's lot is to give and give
And go on giving

A woman's got to love and lose
And go on living
Well I was born a woman
I didn't have no say

And when my man finally comes home
He makes me glad it happened that way
Because to be his woman
No price is too great to pay

Yes I was born a woman
I'm glad it happened that way
Oh I was born a woman (fade out)
