Sometimes it's hard to be a woman giving all your love to just one man
You'll have bad times and he'll have good times
Doing things that you don't understand
But if you love him you'll forgive him even though he's hard to understand
And if you love him all be proud of him cause after all he's just a man
Stand by your man give him two arms to cling to
And something warm to come to when nights are cold and lonely
Stand by your man and tell the world you love him
Keep giving all the love you can stand by your man
Stand by your man and show the world you love him
Keep giving all the love you can stand by your man oh yeah

    General Commentwow i can't believe there aren't any comments, or even an artist listing for tammy wynette, who originally wrote/sang this song. i don't even really like country, and i love this song. it's so beautifully paradoxical, it caused an uproar with feminists in 68 when it was released, but looking at it now, it seems to be an affirmation of women's power in relationships and life.
    "after all, he's just a man"
    it also contains the often-forgotten message of endurance in love by way of actually working through issues, not just forgetting your love as soon as times get tough. stand by your man, indeed.

    General CommentA very tragical song; The woman doesn't really seems to be happy with her man. She has lots of problems with him, but although she stays strong and she holds on. She's very realistic: she knows that there ain't something like a perfect relationship, there always be some troubles, so the only thing she can do is to accept that fact and so she tries to make the best of it, because (i think) she still loves him !

    This is a song with a lot of wisdom in it..

    O yeah, i really love the voice of L Lynn !
