(Martha Sharp)

It makes no difference if you're rich or poor
Or if you're smart or dumb
A woman's place in this old world
Is under some man's thumb.

And if you're born a woman you're born to be hurt
You're born to be stepped on, lied to
Cheated on and treated like dirt
Oh, if you're born a woman you're born to be hurt.

A woman's lot is to give and give
And go on giving
A woman's got to love and lose
And go on living.

Well. I was born a woman I didn't have no say
And when my man fin'lly comes home
He makes me glad it happened that way
Because to be his woman no price is too great to pay.

Well, I was born a woman I didn't have no say
And when my man fin'lly comes home
He makes me glad it happened that way
Because to be his woman no price is too great to pay.

Yes, I was born a woman
I'm glad it happened that way
And to be his woman
I'm glad it happened that way.
This song is from the album "Downtown Country [RCA Victor]".
