As always, Loretta Lynn has blown us away with her Grand Ole Opry performance of the classic, "Coal Miner's Daughter". 

The autobiographical song was released in 1970 from Loretta's album of the same name, Coal Miner's Daughter. The real-life tune was a major success for Loretta, reaching the top of both the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart, and the Canadian RPM Country Chart. Amazing! The song was so successful, that it eventually lead to the making of the 1976 autobiography of Loretta's life, Coal Miner's Daughter: The Autobiography, and the 1980 biographical movie, Coal Miner's Daughter

The song left a huge mark on the music industry, making it's way to the #185 spot on the RIAA's list of Songs of the Century, and also holds the #13 spot on the CMT's 100 Greatest Songs in Country Music

In the song, Loretta tells the story of her childhood, and growing up as the daughter of a coal miner. She said that no matter what hours her father was working or how much money they had, he always made sure to bring love into his home and care for his eight children. Loretta explains the hardships of growing up on a coal miner's salary, but in the end, she returns home and says her memories will live on.

++++++++++++++++++LYRICS BELOW++++++++++++++++++

Well I was born the coal miner's daughter in a cabin on a hill in Butcher Holler
We were poor but we had love that's the one thing that daddy made sure of
He shovel coal to make a poor man's dollar
My daddy worked all night in the Vanleer coal mine all day long in the field hoein' corn
Mommie rocked the baby that night and read the Bible by the coal oil light
And everything would start all over come break of morn
Daddy loved and raised eight kids on a miner's pay
Mommie scrubbed our clothes on a washboard everyday
Why I've seen her fingers bleed to complain there was no need
She's smiled in mommie's understanding way
In the summertime we didn't have shoes to wear
But in the wintertime we'd all get a brand new pair
From a mail order catalog money made by selling a hog
Daddy always managed to get the money somewhere
Yeah I'm proud to be a coal miner's daughter
I remember well the well where I drew water
The work we done was hard at night we'd sleep cause we were tired
I never thought I'd ever leave the Butcher Holler
But a lots of things have changed since the way back then
And it's so good to be back home again
Not much left but the floor nothing lives there anymore
Just the mem'ries of a coal miner's daughter
