lirik lagu loretta lynn – manhattan kansas

manhattan kansas ain’t no place to have a baby
if you got no man to give it his last name
and my folks back in manhattan didn’t want me or her bundle
so i took my child and caught an evening train
i got a job in denver washing dishes in a diner
at least it buys my baby milk to drink
he once told me i was pretty but the only ring it got me
is the ring of grease that runs around the sink
yes i laid beside him gentle cause he told me that he loved me
and he made me dance before the music played
but at least i didn’t beg him i’d rather wash my dishes
it makes me feel as if my hands’re clean
[ steel ]
at night i stands there thinkin’ bout the men back home in kansas
and how my folks just turned away ashamed
i look down through the soap suds reache down and pulls the drain plug
and watches as manhattan drains away
yes i laid beside him gentle…
