17 December: Loretta Lynn: I Won't Decorate Your Christmas Tree

Published December 17, 2019

While the majority of Christmas songs celebrate the wonders of the holidays, there are quite a few that add a touch of bitterness to the mix. Here's one example: Loretta Lynn's 'I Won't Decorate Your Christmas Three' from her 1966 album Country Christmas.

It has to be said, though that with Lynn's feisty performance, the message is perhaps one of defiance rather than bitterness. Judge for yourselves.

Listen here.
