Kitty Wells performs "A Woman Half My Age" 

Ellen Muriel Deason (August 30, 1919 – July 16, 2012), known professionally as Kitty Wells, was an American pioneering female country music singer. She broke down a female barrier in country music with her 1952 hit recording, "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels" which also made her the first female country singer to top the U.S. country charts, and turned her into the first female country star. Her Top 10 hits continued until the mid-1960s, inspiring a long list of female country singers who came to prominence in the 1960s.

Wells ranks as the sixth-most successful female vocalist in the history of Billboard's country charts, according to historian Joel Whitburn's book The Top 40 Country Hits, behind Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, Reba McEntire, Tammy Wynette, and Tanya Tucker. In 1976, she was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 1991, she became the third country music artist, after Roy Acuff and Hank Williams, and the eighth woman to receive the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Her accomplishments earned her the nickname "Queen of Country Music".

Kitty Wells - Woman Half My Age Lyrics

 

You say I've lost you to a woman half my age

A lovely young acquantance that you've made

You say your love for me you've laid aside

And she's rekindled flames you thought had died.

 

But if your love affair with her goes wrong

And if you miss the love you left at home

Come back and we'll tear out this tarnished page

And we'll forget that woman half my age.

 

--- Ibstrumental ---

 

The lines that time has etched upon my brows

A face grown too familiar to you now

The look that often took the place of words

You're replacing now with looks from her.

 

But if your love affair with her goes wrong

And if you miss the love you left at home

Come back and we'll tear out this tarnished page

And we'll forget that woman half my age.

 

Yes, we'll forget that woman half my age..
