Loretta Lynn - Bargain Basement Dress Lyrics




Well on a Friday night you draw your pay and you take in the town
You leave me at home just to lose my mind for you are messin' around
But it's four in the morning and you stagger in and you sure look a mess
With a smile on your face and out stretched arms and a bargain basement dress
I wouldn't wear that dress to a dogfight if your side was free
And the bargain basemant dress ain't enough to get your arms around me
Well you say when a man was hard all week he deserves to play all rest
But honey that ain't right to get out of my side with that bargain basement dress
[ dobro - steel ]
I wouldn't wear that dress to a dogfight if your side was free
And the bargain basemant dress ain't enough to get your arms around me
Now I took all I'm a gonna take and I'm a leavin' you the rest
Tell you what I'll do I'll just leave you that bargain basement dress
Tell you what I'll do I'll just leave you that old bargain basement dress

    Women just love to complain.

    Possum Jesus

    Loretta wasn't necessarily a complainer. She'd punch that fucker in the face whenever he laid a hand on her.

  6. Sandie Weidner

    Don't think it is a girl, but it could be one of her boys.

    Mc Hobbit

    Watch the clip until the very end. It's a girl. Her hair is halfway down her back. Boys didn't wear their hair like that in those days.

  7. layladylan

    I agree, I laughed out loud at that line. Loretta Lynn is a genius songwriter.

  8. Zelmira

    I want big hair like HER!

  9. Zelmira

    What's that kid doing in the background? LOL!

  10. Dutchy1965

    How cool is that - the little one clapping in the background !!

  11. 53rdAndThird

    I thought she meant her drunk husband came home WEARING the bargain basement dress... I said to myself, "Man, he must've been really, really drunk!"

  12. Sam Young

    Look at that hair

  13. Donna Langley

    @savetheunstable love it!

  14. Daniel

    She tells it how it is! Five Stars for the Queen of Country Music!

  15. Christy McMahan

    thats a boy!!

  16. M. C. M.

    "i wouldn't wear that to a dog fight .. if the fight was free".. hilarious!

    (i'm not pro-dog fighting.. but hey, it's fitting for this song!)

    She's my fave country singer of all time.

    Canadian Monarchist 1992

    I agree on all three points.

  17. littlepiaf

    Oh god, it's too funny listening to those words with a kid in the background!!

  18. streisandgarlandlvr

    Is that one of her girls in the background??

  19. CanyonTide

    Classic!
