Lynn wrote “Fist City” in response to a woman who began filtering with her husband, Doolittle, while Lynn was on tour frequently in Tennessee. The Lynns’ marriage was often very hectic and stormy; He kicked her out of the house early in the relationship, apparently because of her bad cooking. However, Lynn discovered that she was seeing a woman she had been involved with before and blamed Lynn for driving her away.

 

Lynn contacted the other woman, sending her a letter, when she received it, she immediately showed it to Doolittle, who confronted Lynn, telling her to stay out of her business and that the love he had for her had gone. Loretta Lynn’s heart broke when she heard her husband’s words, and the experience finally led her to write “Fist City.”

Loretta Lynn – Fist City Lyrics

 

You’ve been makin’ your brags around town that you’ve been a lovin’ with my man

But the man I love when he picks up trash he puts it in a garbage can

And that’s what you look like to me and what I see is a pitty

You’d better close your face and stay out of my way

If you don’t wanta go to Fist City

If you don’t wanna go to Fist City you’d better detour round my town

Cause I’ll grab you by the hair of the head and I’ll lift you off of the ground

I’m not a sayin’ my baby is a saint cause he ain’t

And that he won’t cat around with a kitty

I’m here to tell you gal to lay off of my man if you don’t wanna go to Fist City

[ steel ]

Come on and tell me what you told my friends if you think you’re brave enough

And I’ll show you what a real woman is since you think you’re hot stuff

You’ll bite off more than you can chew if you get too cute or witty

You better move your feet if you don’t wanna eat a meal that’s called Fist City

If you don’t wanna go to Fist City…

I’m here to tell you gal to lay off of my man if you don’t wanna go to Fist City
