    Loretta Lynn "Coal Miners Daughter"

    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

    There was also a movie out by the same name, featuring the life of Loretta Lynn. The movie starred Sissy Spaceck.
