LOS ANGELES (AP) — Betty Ford said things that first ladies just don’t say, even today. And 1970s America loved her for it.

I Won’t Back Down

Well I won’t back down, no I won’t back down

You could stand me up at the gates of hell

But I won’t back down…

Hey baby there ain’t no easy way out

Hey baby I will stand my ground

And I won’t back down

Tom Petty

Rest in Peace Mrs. Ford
