Kitty Wells Dresses

Kitty Wells Dresses

Laura Cantrell

Kitty Well's dresses
Modest and sweet
Gingham and ribbon
Tied up so neat

They weren't made of satin
Or silk from Paris
But everyone knows they were
Robes of the Queen

Kitty Well's dresses
Every girl's dream
From five-and-dime fabric
Robes of the Queen

Oh, Martha Carson
And Mother Maybelle
June and Anita
And Helen as well

Strode into the spotlight
An song on their lips
Those petticoats swaying
All around their hips

They left the crowd standing
Oh, they did it with ease
In their Kitty Well's dresses
Robes of the Queen

Kitty Well's dresses
Robes of the Queen
From Mobile to Memphis
Every girl's dream

Out in East Nashville
Little sewing room
The Featherweight humming
From morning 'til noon

Radio on the counter
Playing 'Making Believe'
Making Kitty Well's dresses
Robes of the Queen

Kitty Well's dresses
Robes of the Queen
Our modern day woman
No fashion dream

I've seen the photos
In Black Aberdeen
High heels and a handbag
Robes of the Queen
