Just Because I'm a Woman

Album: Just Because I'm a Woman (1968)
  • I can see you're disappointed
    By the way you look at me
    And I'm sorry that I'm not
    The woman you thought I'd be
    Yes, I've made my mistakes
    But listen and understand
    My mistakes are no worse than yours
    Just because I'm a woman

    So when you look at me
    Don't feel sorry for yourself
    Just think of all the shame
    You might have brought somebody else

    Just let me tell you this
    Then we'll both know where we stand
    My mistakes are no worse than yours
    Just because I'm a woman

    Now a man will take a good girl
    And he'll ruin her reputation
    But when he wants to marry
    Well, that's a different situation

    He'll just walk off and leave her
    To do the best she can
    While he looks for an angel
    To wear his wedding band

    Now I know that I'm no angel
    If that's what you thought you'd found
    I was just the victim of
    A man that let me down

    Yes, I've made my mistakes
    But listen and understand
    My mistakes are no worse than yours
    Just because I'm a woman

    No, my mistakes are no worse than yours
    Just because I'm a woman Writer/s: DOLLY PARTON
