Loretta Lynn – Hey Loretta Lyrics

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…
