"Don't Come Home A-Drinkin' (With Lovin' on Your Mind)" is a country music song, made famous by Country music singer Loretta Lynn in early 1967. The song was Loretta Lynn's first number-one country hit. It is one of her best known songs and is included in all of her live shows.

One of Loretta Lynn's best-known compositions, "Don't Come Home A-Drinkin" is about an angry wife who is fed up with her husband coming home late every night very drunk and wanting to have sex. The song was based on Lynn's personal life; her husband is known to have been a heavy drinker. The song was the first of many controversial songs sung by Lynn, which also included 1972's "Rated X" and 1975's "The Pill". The song was considered very controversial for the time, but was ultimately quite popular. An album of the same name was released following the song's success, which also rose to the top of the charts.

Released in late 1966, "Don't Come Home A-Drinkin'" didn't reach the top spot until February 11, 1967, overtaking Jack Greene's No. 1 hit from late 1966, "There Goes My Everything". The song was the first of 16 No. 1 Country hits Lynn would have over the course of her career. The song set the standard for Lynn's biggest success to come in the early 1970s. Thanks in part to the success of this hit, Lynn became the first female Country entertainer to win the CMA Awards' "Female Vocalist of the Year" award in late 1967.

Loretta Lynn Don'T Come Home A-Drinkin'

(With Lovin' On Your Mind) Lyrics

 

Well you thought I'd be waitin' up when you came home last night

You'd been out with all the boys and you ended up half tight

But liquor and love that just don't mix leave a bottle or me behind

And don't come home a drinkin' with lovin' on your mind

No don't come home a drinkin' with lovin' on your mind

Just stay out there on the town and see what you can find

Cause if you want that kind of love well you don't need none of mine

So don't come home a drinkin' with lovin' on your mind

[ steel - guitar ]

You never take me anywhere because you're always gone

Many a night I've laid awake and cried dear all alone

And you come in a kissin' on me it happens every time

No don't come home a drinkin' with lovin' on your mind

No don't come home a drinkin'...

No don't come home a drinkin' with lovin' on your mind
