Things I learned from "The Coal Miner's Daughter"

You're never to old to have your daddy whoop you with a switch.

It takes a great deal of talent to go from a coal miner's daughter in Butcher Holler, KY, to the "first lady of country music."

There's a difference between being ignorant and being stupid.

If a woman tries to take your man (whether the man is privy to it or not), you just don't let 'em. Just snatch that wad o' hair outta her head if you have to. Hence the song, "You Ain't Woman Enough to Take My Man."

Patsy Cline was one classy lady with a beast of a voice. Amazing tone.


It's extremely unclassy to knock your husband upside his head with your purse, especially in public.

When you don't use birth control, you have a lot of babies.

A woman should never try to dress and look like a porcelain doll. Creepy.

Sometimes you just don't want to sing and sometimes it's all you want to do.

Favorite quotes:

"Stop growlin'. You sound like an ol' bear."

"I may be ignorant, but I ain't stupid!"

"Woman, if you want to keep that arm, you better get it off my husband."

"I don't want no divorce! I just want the dadgum bedroom in the back of the house!"

I just love this movie. Sissy Spacek = amazing!

You know I've never seen that. Are you ashamed of me? :)

Sounds like fun though. I'd like to use that line about "keeping that arm" but I have not the occasion. Drat.

Well, unless I use it on the kids about touching things in Wal-Mart.
