Loretta Lynn – Your Squaw Is On The Warpath Lyrics

Well your pet name for me is Squaw
When you come home a-drinking and can barely crawl
And all that loving on me won’t make things right

Well you’re leaving me at home to keep the tee pee clean
A-six papooses to break and wean
Well, your Squaw is on the warpath tonight

Well I found out, a-big brave chief
The game you were hunting for ain’t beef
Get offa my hunting grounds and get outta my sight

This war dance I’m doing means I’m fighting mad
You don’t need no more of what you’ve already had
Your Squaw is on the warpath tonight

Well-a that fire water that a you’ve been drinking
Makes you feel bigger but chief you’re shrinking
Since you’ve been on that love making diet

Now don’t hand me that old peace pipe
There ain’t no pipe can settle this fight
Your Squaw is on the warpath tonight

Well I found out a-big brave chief
The game you’re a hunting for ain’t beef
Get offa my hunting grounds and get outta my sight

This war dance I’m doing means I’m fighting mad
You don’t need no more of what you’ve already had
Your Squaw is on the warpath tonight
Yeah, your Squaw is on the warpath tonight
