I am shocked at how few Loretta Lynn tabs we have here!! 
So I am going to try and work out the chords to the entire Van Lear Rose album. 
It's a REALLY great album, if you're thinking of buying it. 
It has a Metascore of 97%!!

GOne of my fondest memories
CWas sittin' on my daddy's knee
GListenin' to the stories that he told
GHe'd pull out that old photograph
CLike a treasured memory from the past
GAnd say child
D GThis here's the Van Lear Rose
GOh how it would bring a smile
CWhen he talked about her big blue eyes
GAnd how her beauty ran down to her soul
GShe'd walk across the coal miners' yard
CThem miners would yell loud and hard
G Dand they'd dream of who would hold
GThe Van Lear Rose
CShe was the belle of Johnson County
GOhio river to Big Sandy
D GA beauty to behold like a diamond in the coal
CAll the miners they would gather 'round
GTalk about the man that came to town
DRight under their nose
GStole the heart of the Van Lear Rose
GNow the Van Lear Rose could've had her pick
CAnd all the fellers figured rich
GUntil this poor boy caught her eye
GHis buddies would all laugh and say
CYou're dreamin' boy she'll never look your way
G D GYou'll never ever hold the Van Lear Rose
CShe was the belle of Johnson County
GOhio river to Big Sandy
D GA beauty to behold like a diamond in the coal
CAll the miners they would gather 'round
GTalk about the man that came to town
DRight under their nose
GStole the heart of the Van Lear Rose
GThen one night in mid July
CUnderneath that ol' blue Kentucky sky
GWell, that poor boy won that beauty's heart
GThen my daddy would look at my mommy and smile
CAs he brushed the hair back from my eyes and he'd say
GYour mama
D GShe's the Van Lear Rose
CShe was the belle of Johnson County
GOhio river to Big Sandy
D GA beauty to behold like a diamond in the coal
CAll the miners they would gather 'round
GTalk about the man that came to town
DRight under their nose
GStole the heart of the Van Lear Rose
DRight under their nose
GStole the heart of the Van Lear Rose
