50 Years Ago Today – Loretta Lynn Records Her First #1 Hit “”Don’t Come Home A’Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ On Your Mind)”

50 years ago today (10/5/66),  Loretta Lynn recorded “Don’t Come Home A’Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ On Your Mind)” during an afternoon session at Bradley’s Barn in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee.  The track became Lynn’s first No. 1 hit and was the title track from her seventh studio album. “Don’t Come Home A’ Drinkin'” placed at # 47 on CMT’s 100 Greatest Songs in Country Music.

The song, which was written by Lynn along with her younger sister Peggy Sue, was considered controversial at the time. Telling the story of a man who comes home drunk, Lynn sings, “You never take me anywhere because you’re always gone / Many a night I’ve laid awake and cried, dear, all alone / And you come in a’ kissin’ on me, it happens every time / No, don’t come home a’ drinkin’ with lovin’ on your mind.”

Listen to the classic track taken from the original vinyl….

  1. Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with
    the images on this blog loading? I’m trying to determine if its a
    problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

  2. I believe what you posted was very logical. However, consider this, suppose you were to create a killer post title? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added a post title to possibly grab people’s attention? I mean is a little plain. You ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create post titles to grab viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a pic or two to grab people excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.
