Ten Days of Dolly Pardon (3) “It’s all wrong, but its all right”


It seems there was a theme for women in country music. The cheatin, husband, the conniving woman a tryin to steal her man, or the man who doesn’t appreciate her and one of my Loretta Lynn favorites “Stayin out drinking comin home with lovin on your mind”

Its all wrong” Dolly wasn’t complaining about her husband or some cheap woman. She was talking about sex. She was lonely and horny, she wasn’t asking or begging for commitment. In a mans world, a WOMAN doesn’t do this! Dolly has stepped out of the mold before with “The Bargain Store” Worn, second-hand merchandise in a discount store is used as a metaphor for a woman emotionally damaged by an ill-fated relationship. However, the song was dropped from a number of country stations’ playlists when programmers mistook the line “you can easily afford the price” as a thinly veiled reference to prostitution. This song went to #1 in 1975 .

Its all wrong, was bold and suggestive and in 1978, the song was Parton’s seventh number one country single as a solo artist. The single stayed at number one for two weeks and spent a total of ten weeks on the country chart.
