Rural Ledge-ucation #79: Country Divas

First off, my apologies for the lateness in posting this show. Technical issues caused me to lack the ability to access the host of these shows, so I've been (not so) patiently waiting for the moment I could upload.
The time has finally come, and this may be one of the more enjoyable Sunday morning broadcasts I've put together to date. The inspiration came a few days ago when I heard this hilarious tune by Loretta Lynn on satellite radio:

"The girls in New York City they all march for women's lib
And Better Homes and Gardens shows the modern way to live
And the pill may change the world tomorrow but meanwhile today
Here in Topeka the flies are a buzzin'
The dog is a barkin' and the floor needs a scrubbin'
One needs a spankin' and one needs a huggin' Lord one's on the way
Oh gee I hope it ain't twins again"

How could I not air this tune? The search was now on to find other tunes with similar themes, and we now have a collection of lying, cheating, and drinking songs primarily sung by female country stars of the 50's and 60's. It's a lot of fun, and definitely worth the wait!
