    Liberated Woman

    (Wayne Carson)



    John Wesley Ryles recordings

    MCA-41033 (MC8438) (US promo 45)


    Released well after the brunt of the women's liberation movement, this song is cleverer than it appears.  The titular character is a woman who has been burnt one too many times, and has simply decided not to date.  The song's plea for sentiment lies in the bridge where the woman is lying in an empty bed, reaching out for a lover who is no longer there.  In this Glen Campbell-style, up-tempo ballad, replete with lush strings in the background, "liberated" is a double-entendre for "free" and "freed".
