Tammy Wynette – Blanket On The Ground lyrics

Come and look out through the window
That big old moon is shining down
Tell me now don't it remind you
Of a blanket on the ground

Remember back when love first found us
We'd go slippin out a town
And we'd love beneath the moonlight
On a blanket on the ground

I'll get the blanket from the bedroom
We'll go walking once again
To that spot down by the river
Where our sweet love first began

Just because we are married
Don't mean that we can't slip around
So lets walk out by the moonlight
And lay the blanket on the ground

Oh remember how excited
We used to get when love was young
That old moon was our best buddy
We couldn't wait for night to come

Now you know you still excite me
I know you love me like I am
Just once more I wish you'd love me
On a blanket on the ground

I'll get the blanket from the bedroom
And we'll go walking once again
To that spot down by the river
Where our sweet love forst began

Just because we are married
Don't mean that we can't slip around
So lets walk out by the moonlight
Lay the blanket on the ground

Do do do do do do do do,
Do do do do do do do do,

So lets walk out throught the moonlight
Lay the blanket on the ground,
Do do do do do do do do.

    I have always interpreted this song as the singer being the blanket. "Just because we are married, don't mean we can't sleep around" suggests to me that the singer doesn't mind being used for a bit of fun. It suggests ( to me anyway) that she doesn't mind being led down and used. I'm probably miles off the mark but I often consider that when friends ask for casual sex.
    " I don't want you to just be a blanket on the ground".
