Touch Your Woman (song)

Touch Your Woman (song)

"Touch Your Woman" is the title of a song written and originally recorded by American country music artist Dolly Parton. It was released in December 1971 as the first single and title track of Parton's album Touch Your Woman. It provided a 1972 top-ten country single for her. The lyrics speak of a disagreement between lovers, but concludes with the line "all you have to do to make it right is just touch your woman". A tranquil, slow-tempo ballad, the song differed from many of Parton's other hits at the time, in that it was neither an upbeat, lilting country number, nor a nostalgic reminiscence of her rural childhood. "Touch Your Woman" reached number 6 on the U.S. country singles charts in March 1972, though a number of country radio stations refused to play it because they found it too sexually suggestive.

It has since been included in a number of Parton's compilation albums, including Best of Dolly Parton, The RCA Years, and The Essential Dolly Parton.

The song was covered in late 1972 by R&B artist Margie Joseph, and in 2002 by folk singer Kate Campbell.

Famous quotes containing the words touch and/or woman:

    I am against nature. I don’t dig nature at all. I think nature is very unnatural. I think the truly natural things are dreams, which nature can’t touch with decay.
    Bob Dylan [Robert Allen Zimmerman] (b. 1941)

    Assumptions of male superiority are as widespread and deep rooted and every bit as crippling to the woman as the assumptions of white supremacy are to the Negro.... this is no more a man’s world than it is a white world.
