About Edit

Tammy Faye is the second track off of Heart Shaped Bed by Nicole Dollanganger, named after the controversial American Christian singer, evangelist, talk show host, and television personality, Tammy Faye Messner.

Background Edit

The 2018 Stereogum interview revealed that it was written one night in August of 2017 when Dollanganger couldn’t sleep. Early in morning, she crept away to write and “it just kind of spilled out of me at this weird hour. For me, the songs that happen like that - they speak to me the most,” she said. It was later re-recorded in Tomasi’s studio. The first snippet was released on March 20, 2018.

Music Video Edit

The music video wrapped on May 17, 2018. It was filmed in Mount Pocono, Pennsylvania and features Xavia Claire Alice, Patience Kingsley, and Maggie Dunlap.

Lyrics Edit

You know how I get
With my Tammy Faye eyes
Crying, I'm a mess
Half undressed in the light of the TV

You know you'll just have to go bury this
In the garden and leave it 'til there's nothing left
For me to find, when I try to dig it up
And bring it back to life

'Cause you know how I get
I love you so madly like Sadie Mae
But I'm just a crazy bitch
Crying in the kitchen to Tammy Wynette

But it's just how I get
With my Tammy Faye eyes
Blood on my clothes and my hands
I've done it again

You know you'll just have to go bury this
In the garden and leave it 'til there's nothing left
For me to find, when I try to dig it up
And bring it back to life

'Cause you know how I get
I love you so madly like Sadie Mae
But I'm just a crazy bitch
Crying in the kitchen to Tammy Wynette

'Cause I shoot the gun any chance I get
With blood on my clothes and my hands
I've done it again
