She weighed 4 pounds 11 ounces at birth. She attended grade schools wherever her father found work, primarily in the corridor between Atlanta and Augusta (Augusta, Georgia). Her family was poor, living hand-to-mouth; she shared a bed with her two siblings in a series of three-room houses without running water. Life centered on her parents finding work, their extended family, and the Baptist Church, where she sang solos every Sunday. Lee remembers the church as not being truly "Primitive Baptist", but the congregation did engage in foot-washing and performed baptisms in a river. Her father died in 1953, and by the time she turned ten, she was the primary breadwinner of her family through singing at events and on local radio and television shows. During that time, she appeared regularly on the country music show "TV Ranch" on WAGA-TV in Atlanta; she was so short, the host would lower a stand microphone as low as it would go and stand her up on a wooden crate to reach it. In 1955, Grayce Tarpley was remarried to Buell "Jay" Rainwater, who moved the family to Cincinnati, Ohio, where he worked at the Jimmy Skinner Music Center. Lee performed with Skinner at the record shop on two Saturday programs broadcast over Newport, Kentucky radio station WNOP-AM (WNOP).

Kevyn? Do we really want to indicate in the Memphis article that crackers call it "Memfrica" to make fun of how many Black people are living there? There are "funny" coinages like this in most cities. They appeal to a particularly shameful community. Before we'd even allow the least hint of this anywhere, I'd want some '''serious''' confirmation that this isn't one redneck's joke. I say this as a good old boy, too. Geogre (User:Geogre) 23:56, 25 Aug 2004 (UTC) ***OK, I just checked, and the article on Memphis (Memphis, Tennessee#Demographics) already has '''Memphrica''' listed, in the section on demographics (61.41% of the population is African-American, hence the derogatory nickname). Seems like a logical and NPOV way of presenting the information, so I am changing my vote to just '''Redirect'''. Now, to jusify my position, let me say that I believe '''any''' common nickname for a place is encyclopedic, no matter how cheeky or offensive it is. (Full disclosure: I was the one who created the redirect Disgusta to Augusta, Georgia, and added info to the article on why Augusta has that appellation.) That having been said, is the term '''Memphrica''' in widespread-enough use to justify its inclusion? A couple of cursory searche s suggests yes: At least one online dictionary lists the definition and a google search reveals a couple hundred hits with the name, most of which seem to be referring to Memphis. Is it an offensive and racist slur? Absolutely. But is it NPOV true? Apparently so. User:Kevyn Kevyn 00:24, 26 Aug 2004 (UTC) ****Um, that online dictionary you cite is a Wikipedia mirror. That's the only thing I really hate about having all those mirrors: there's potential for the echo chamber effect. I don't see the need to document racial slurs.
