Loveless Empowers Women in “I’m That Kind of Girl” 1

Patty Loveless/biography.com

There’s a man in a Stetson hat, howlin’ like an alley cat
Outside my window tonight
Sayin’, “Baby, put on something hot, meet me in the parking lot
About a quarter to nine”

I get the feelin’ that he’s never read Romeo and Juliet
I’m gettin’ tired of these one night stands
But if you want to make a real romance

 I’m that kind of girl…

Heard such words before? Oh yeah! Valentine Season is still around the corner and for sure almost all couples, if not all, are celebrating. So before everything gets wild and crazy, have some words from Patty Loveless through her song and be reminded of what love really is.

A song that empowers women and not simply sees them as toys. Yes, women are for romance and ain’t taken for granted. Patty Loveless makes sure of this. Hence, this song! 

Going away from her usual soft bluegrass melody, Loveless channels her inner fierce-kind-of-girl in this hit, “I’m That Kind of Girl”. Aside from singing Bluegrass, Loveless also rocks Neotraditional Country music.

Also known as new traditional country, Neotraditional Country a country music style that emphasizes the instrumental background and a “traditional” country vocal style. In addition, Neotraditional Country artists often dress in the fashions of the country music scene of the 1940s, 1950s and early 1960s.

‘Ain’t the girl next door…’

Patty Loveless starts off the song talking about a man and describing him like an alley cat in her neighborhood.

He says “Baby, put on something hot, meet me in the parking lot about a quarter to nine…”

This Kentucky native then continued and guessed that the man may never seem to have read Romeo and Juliet. One night stands are not her thing and as a woman, she needs what everyone else also wants — romance.

Loveless then said she’s a sucker for a ‘love-sick fool’. She described herself as a woman who likes to be loved like what other women want. She ain’t the woman in red nor she ain’t the girl next door. She’s just a simple woman, waitin’ at your door.

About the song…

Recorded by American country music artist Patty Loveless, “I’m That Kind of Girl” is a song written by Matraca Berg and Shea Jones. It was released in January 1991 as the third single from her album On Down the Line.

The song charted for 20 weeks on the Billboard Hot Country Singles and Tracks chart, reaching number 5 during the week of March 30, 1991.

Here are the lyrics of the song and try to sing along.

There’s a man in a Stetson hat, howlin’ like an alley cat
Outside my window tonight
Sayin’, “Baby, put on something hot, meet me in the parking lot
About a quarter to nine”

I get the feelin’ that he’s never read Romeo and Juliet
I’m gettin’ tired of these one night stands
But if you want to make a real romance

I’m that kind of girl, I’m that kind of girl
I ain’t the woman in red, I ain’t the girl next door
But if somewhere in the middle’s what you’re lookin’ for
I’m that kind of girl, yes I’m that kind of girl

Let me tell you that I like my lovin’ just as much as any woman
But I’m drawin’ the line
A little sensitivity always seems to get to me every time
I’m a sucker for a love-sick fool
The kind that carries all your books in school
I’m getting tired of these one night stands
But if you’re lookin’ for a real romance

I’m that kind of girl, I’m that kind of girl
I ain’t the woman in red, I ain’t the girl next door
But if somewhere in the middle’s what you’re lookin’ for
I’m that kind of girl, yes I’m that kind of girl

I’m that kind of girl, I’m that kind of girl
I ain’t the woman in red, I ain’t the girl next door
But if somewhere in the middle’s what you’re lookin’ for
I’m that kind of girl, yes I’m that kind of girl
I’m that kind of girl, oh whoa
