Loretta Lynn - Gonna Pack My Troubles Lyrics



I'm gonna pack my troubles in a big suitcase and dump'em in the deep blue sea
Come all your lovers from misery lane and a tag along with me
Well I'm tired of livin' this kind of life wantin' things that just can't be
I'm gonna pack my troubles in a big suitcase and dump 'em in the deep blue sea

Well then that ole sun it'll start to shine and I won't be blue no more
Well then I'll find myself a brand new love that's a what I'm longin' for
Well the loves I had they've made me sad left my heart swingin' from a tree
I'm gonna pack my troubles in a big suitcase and dump 'em in the deep blue sea

Well then that ole sun it'll start to shine and I won't be blue no more
Well then I'll find myself a brand new love that's a what I'm longin' for
Well the loves I had they've made me sad left my heart swingin' from a tree
I'm gonna pack my troubles in a big suitcase and dump 'em in the deep blue sea
And dump them in the deep blue sea

    I have this same copy.  It's my guess that Loretta had met the Wilburn Brothers by this time and it's their publishing company, Sure-Fire Music, that owned the publishing rights.  At this time they were still shopping for a big label to sign Loretta.  Eventually DECCA Records signed her and the contract lasted until 1988.

    It says ZERO label. Wilburnes had nothing to do with that label. Plus it was on West coast.

    I've read that Zero released her from the contract when DECCA Records offered her a major recording contract. The first contract with DECCA was for six months only...in that time frame she had to prove to them that her music would continue to sell and she would be booked on TV shows and various venues. Every six months they would re-evaluate another six month contract...eventually it was what's called "a lifetime contract." I think each contract was for ten years. Loretta Lynn's last recording for DECCA/MCA was in 1988, and was titled "Who Was That Stranger." However, she would continue to chart on other labels most recent was in 2018.

    @i11benji You're correct...The Wilburn Brothers had no business dealings with Zero Records since they were based in Nashville. But at the time they were shopping for a major record deal for Loretta Lynn and acting as her managers. At some point Columbia Records almost signed Loretta, but that didn't happen. Eventually Decca Records did sign her, eventually she would record for MCA in 1973, a division of Decca Records...which is a British recording label...now under the division of Universal Music Group.

    I dont think she even knew the wilbourns when she did this song.

    @i11benji yes she did because the publishings company Sure Fire was owned by them. See the 45 label....it has Sure Fire as publishing company.
