Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline shared a close relationship when Lynn first got her start in country music. Lynn says that Cline was her role model, and that she often stepped in to help her, even loaning her a pair of panties once. 

So when Cline died in a plane crash in 1963, Lynn was devastated by the news.

Lynn says that she went over to Cline's house right after her death so that she could check in on her husband, Charlie. While Lynn's husband talked to Charlie, Lynn sat down on the stairs in Cline's recreation room, and she found herself inspired to write a song.

After 20 minutes, Lynn had finished writing the song, and she recorded it two nights later.

The song, called "This Haunted House," was never released as a single, but was included on Lynn's 1964 album, Before I'm Over You.

The song's lyrics are absolutely heartbreaking, as the narrator mourns over the loss of someone they deeply cared about.

When Lynn finished writing the song at Cline's house, she came out with her guitar and decided to play it for Charlie.

"I was going to ask him what he thought of it, but he had tears rolling down his face. He said, 'It's beautiful.' I said 'I wrote this for you,'" Loretta said.

Listen to a recording of Lynn's "This Haunted House" in the video below.

We're sure Cline would be so proud of Lynn and everything she has accomplished since she's been gone.


I watched you leave that's how I know you're gone
But this heart of mine keeps telling me I'm wrong
I see your face before me every night
In this haunted house when I turn off the light
Sometimes I hear you walk across the floor
And my arms reach out to hold you like before
I live for all the things we used to do
In this haunted house I filled with love for you
This haunted house I'm living in is killing me
And the ghost of your love won't set me free
Each morning finds me crying and alone
In this haunted house we used to call our home
Each morning finds me crying...
