"I Know How" (1970)

Lynn often doesn't get credit for her way with a pop song (check out her sassy cover of "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'") or, in this case, a blues-inflected number. "I Know How" was the lead single from 1970's Loretta Lynn Writes 'Em and Sings 'Em, her first album featuring all of her own compositions (and one co-write with her sister Peggy Sue Wells). "I Know How" was Lynn's salute to taking care of her man, sung with enough bravado to make you believe her.
