Tammy Wynette, also known as 'The First Lady of Country', had such a wonderfully recognizable and evocative tone to her voice. Unfortunately, it was contained inside the frame of a vulnerable woman, one who died prematurely, and irremediably sad.

Those close to her recall that she only ever got visibly choked up when thinking about her father, who abandoned her before she had any memory of him. Tammy seemed to be searching for that love in other men all her life. She married five times.

You can hear the tinge of longing in her voice even in this early recording. By that time, Tammy had married twice, the first time at 17, and shortly before entering the studio, when she was just 21 years old.

'Apartment #9' was the first song Tammy ever recorded, in 1967. Also during this session she laid down hits 'Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad' and 'I Don't Wanna Play House'.

LYRICS BELOW

Just follow the stairway
To this lonely world of mine
You'll find me waitin' here
In apartment number nine

Not so very long ago
You walked away from me
And after all the plans we made
You decided to be free

Loneliness surrounds me
Without your arms around me
And the sun will never shine
In apartment number nine

I keep waitin' in this lonely room
Just in case you change your mind
You'll find me waitin' here
In apartment number nine

Loneliness surrounds me
Without your arms around me
And the sun will never shine
In apartment number nine

No,the sun will never shine
In apartment number nine
