"Fist City" (1968)
Miss Loretta wrote several tunes showcasing her feisty nature, but none better illustrates the fightin' side of the coal miner's daughter than this warning that a knuckle sandwich will be served to a woman trying to cozy up to her beloved Doolittle. The song's delicious combination of completely straightforward threats and sick burns, sung over a jaunty beat, is simultaneously comical and ice cold. Lynn enjoyed this controversial Number One hit so much she included a new version on her recently released album Full Circle. We'd never advocate violence, but cranking up "Fist City" is one healthy way to blow off steam.
