What is this country song?
It's an older country song that my mom used to listen to when I was a kid. The lyrics went something like this:
"I was born the coal man's daughter
In a cabin on the hill over by that town
We were poor but we had shoes
That's the one thing my daddy made sure of
We wore our shoes until our hair turned gray"
Since that sounds kind of stupid I'm sure I don't have the words correct but it goes something like that. Thanks for any help.

Coal Miner's Daughter Loretta Lynn
Well, I was born a coal miner's daughter
In a cabin on a hill in Butcher Holler
We were poor but we had love
That's the one thing my Daddy made sure of
He shoveled coal to make a poor man's dollar
My daddy worked all night in the Van Lear coal mine
All day long in the field hoeing corn
Mama rocked the baby at night
Read the Bible by a coal oil light
And everything would start all over come break of morn
Daddy loved and raised eight kids on a coal miner's pay
Mama scrubbed our clothes on a washboard every day
I've seen her fingers bleed
To complain there was no need
She'd smile in Mama's understanding way
In the summertime we didn't have shoes to wear
But in the wintertime we'd all get a brand new pair
From a mail-order catalogue, money made by selling a hog
Daddy always seemed to get the money somewhere
I'm proud to be a coal miner's daughter
I remember well, the well where I drew water
The work we done was hard
At night we'd sleep, cause we were tired
I never thought I'd ever leave Butcher Holler
Well a lot of things have changed, since way back when
And it's so good to be back home again
Not much left but the floor
Nothing lives here anymore
Just a memory of a coal miner's daughter

Coal Miner's Daughter by Loretta Lynn
I was watching a show on the travel channel about her the other day
She has this mansion that is haunted. Even though I don't believe in ghosts, it was really interesting.

You have the answer to your question..Coal Miner's Daughter by Loretta Lynn.
Did you know there is a movie by the same title, an autobiography of Ms Lynn's rise from poverty to fame? It stars Sissy Spacek, whom Ms. Lynn hand chose to play her, and Tommy Lee Jones as her husband Mooney. Good Movie!
Also, a little more trivia, Crystal Gayle is Ms. Lynn's younger sister and Patsy & Peggy Lynn, "The Lynns" are Ms. Lynn twin daughters.Source(s): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080549/ http://www.lorettalynn.com/home/index.html http://countrymusic.about.com/library/bllorettacon...
