Loretta’s coal miner’s daughter
Walking after midnight with Patsy
Lynn Andersons Rose Garden
Jolene by Dolly Parton
Reba McEntire’s Fancy

This is for the queens of country
Sang of life, livin and lovin
They got us through the pain when the tears were comin
from the heart not for the money
They sang a the truth that we wanted
Thank God for the queens of country

Stand by your Man you can’t forget
The teardrop voice of Tammy Wynette
Kitty wells heartbreak USA
Tanya’s Delta Dawn
Barbara’s if loving you is wrong
Jeannie C shook up the PTA

This is for the queens of country
Sang of life, livin and lovin
They got us through the pain when the tears were comin
from the heart not for the money
They sang a the truth that we wanted
Thank God for the queens of country

They were all trail blazers
Some were hell raisers
Saints, mothers, friends and lovers too
Some are gone, but none forgotten
They ain’t like any others
Thank God for the queens of country
