Sweet Love Quotes by Dolly Parton

Alabama Sundown

The cold December wind seems bent on rockin' New York City

The town that's got me down to my last dime

And everywhere I go, the people seem in such a hurry

To keep this Mobile girl from feelin' fine

Lord, what I'd give to see an Alabama sundown

The sun just seemed to drop in Mobile Bay

New York town has got a gifted way to keep a girl down

But that never was the Mobile way, no, no

That never was the Mobile way

A flashing sign says that you can rent a bed for just a dollar

In anybody's town, that price is cheap

It's a shame to know a girl would ever fall down to my standards

'Cause I need ninety cents to go to sleep

Lord, what I'd give to see an Alabama sundown

The sun just seemed to drop in Mobile Bay

New York town has got a gifted way to keep a girl down

But that never was the Mobile way, no, no

That never was the Mobile way

I felt so big the day I left, that Mobile couldn't hold me

I thought there had to be a better way

But if I could find that man that first called Lady Luck a lady

That gentleman would surely learn to pray

Backwoods Barbie

I grew up poor and ragged, just a simple country girl.

I wanted to be pretty more than anything in the world,

Like Barbie or the models in the Fredricks' catalog.

From rags to wishes in my dreams I could have it all.

I'm just a backwoods Barbie, too much makeup, too much hair.

Don't be fooled by thinkin' that the goods are not all there.

Don't let these false eyelashes lead you to believe that

I'm as shallow as I look 'cause I run true and deep.

I've always been misunderstood because of how I look.

Don't judge me by the cover 'cause I'm a real good book.

So read into it what you will, but see me as I am.

The way I look is just a country girl's idea of glam.

I'm just a backwoods Barbie in a push-up bra and heels.

I might look artificial, but where it counts I'm real.

And I'm all dolled up and hopin' for a chance to prove my worth,

And even backwoods Barbie's get their feelings hurt.

I'm just a backwoods Barbie, too much makeup, too much hair.

Don't be fooled by thinkin' that the goods are not all there.

Yes, I can see where I could be misjudged upon first glance;

But even backwoods Barbies deserve a second chance.

I'm just a backwoods Barbie just asking for a chance,

Just a backwoods Barbie.

 

 

Coat of Many Colors

Back through the years

I go wanderin once again

Back to the seasons of my youth

I recall a box of rags that someone gave us

And how my momma put the rags to use

There were rags of many colors

Every piece was small

And I didn't have a coat

And it was way down in the fall

Momma sewed the rags together

Sewin every piece with love

She made my coat of many colors

That I was so proud of

As she sewed, she told a story

From the bible, she had read

About a coat of many colors

Joseph wore and then she said

Perhaps this coat will bring you

Good luck and happiness

And I just couldnt wait to wear it

And momma blessed it with a kiss

My coat of many colors

That my momma made for me

Made only from rags

But I wore it so proudly

Although we had no money

I was rich as I could be

In my coat of many colors

My momma made for me

So with patches on my britches

and holes in both my shoes

In my coat of many colors

I hurried off to school

Just to find the others laughing

And making fun of me

In my coat of many colors

My momma made for me

And oh I couldnt understand it

For I felt I was rich

And I told 'em of the love

My momma sewed in every stitch

And I told 'em all the story

Momma told me while she sewed

And how my coat of many colors

Was worth more than all their clothes

But they didn't understand it

And I tried to make them see

That one is only poor

Only if they choose to be

Now I know we had no money

But I was rich as I could be

In my coat of many colors

My momma made for me

Made just for me

 

 

Go To Hell

Go to Hell, go to Hell, go back where you belong

Get thee behind me Satan, just leave me the Hell alone

Take your wars and your politics, your lust and your greed

And go to Hell in a handbasket 'cause heaven waits for me

Go to Hell, go to Hell, go back where you belong

Get thee behind me Satan, just leave me alone

You're a cheat, you're a liar, you're a scoundrel and a thief

Go to Hell in a handbasket 'cause heaven waits for me

Go to Hell, go to Hell, go to Hell, go to Hell

Go to Hell in a handbasket 'cause heaven waits for me

Oh I tried hard to conquer my fears and my doubts

But everywhere I turn I see your evil doin's all about

I have suffered your sorrow, your heartache and grief

You keep dealing me a bad hand with a trick card up your sleeve

Go to Hell, go to Hell, go back where you belong

Get thee behind me Satan, just leave me alone

Take all of your bad guys, your demons and flee

Go to Hell in a handbasket, heaven's calling me

Go to Hell, go to Hell, go to Hell, go to Hell

Go to Hell in a handbasket 'cause heaven waits for me

Oh, I know I'm no angel, but I'm better than that

And God is still my hero, and he can knock you flat

There is nothing but sorrow in that wicked place that you dwell

Take your pain and your misery and go straight to Hell

Go to Hell, go to Hell, go back where you belong

Get thee behind me Satan, just leave me alone

Take your drugs and your alcohol, your vices and leave

Go to Hell in a handbasket, just get away from me

Go to Hell (go to Hell), go to Hell (go to Hell)

Go to Hell in a handbasket 'cause heaven waits for me

My brothers and my sisters (ah)

I'm here to tell you that Satan is real (ah)

He is real and walking around amongst us trying to destroy everything that's good and beautiful (ah)

He wants to break our hearts and minds (ah)

Destroy our dreams and plans (ah)

He wants to tear us up in little pieces, break us down and send us straight to Hell (Oh, my God)

Ah-ha, you said a mouthful brother

Oh, my God. Oh, my God can do anything (ah)

My God can heal the sick (ah)

Mend broken hearts and take our souls to heaven (ah)

So Satan, listen up (ah)

In God's name I rebuke you (ah)

I stand up in his name, look you in the eye and laugh in your ugly face (ha, ha, ha)

Go to Hell, go to Hell, go back where you belong

Get thee behind me Satan, just leave me alone

Take your weapons of mass destruction, terror and sleaze

Go to Hell with your corruption, just get away from me

Go to Hell, go to Hell, go to Hell, go to Hell

Go to Hell in a handbasket 'cause heaven waits for me

Go to Hell, go to Hell, go to Hell, go to Hell

Go to Hell in a handbasket 'cause heaven waits for me

Go to Hell in a handbasket, heaven's calling me

Heaven, heaven waits for me, so go to Hell

Oh, my brothers and my sisters

God can deliver us from Satan's evil grip

Satan, listen to me, my Father in Heaven can kick

your astronomical ego right back to the pits of Hell

Can I get an amen on that one?

Oh, hallelujah. Oh, Satan, you ol' devil you

God can flatten you like a Sunday morning pancake (ah)

Can I get a hallelujah on that one?

Oh, ain't it so, ain't it so?

Don't you love it, don't you love it?

Satan, you can go to Hell

 

Jolene

Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene

Im begging of you please don't take my man

Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene

Please don't take him just because you can

Your beauty is beyond compare

With flaming locks of auburn hair

With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green

Your smile is like a breath of spring

Your voice is soft like summer rain

And I cannot compete with you, jolene

He talks about you in his sleep

There's nothing I can do to keep

From crying when he calls your name, jolene

And I can easily understand

How you could easily take my man

But you don't know what he means to me, jolene

Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene

Im begging of you please don't take my man

Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene

Please don't take him just because you can

You could have your choice of men

But I could never love again

Hes the only one for me, jolene

I had to have this talk with you

My happiness depends on you

And whatever you decide to do, jolene

Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene

Im begging of you please don't take my man

Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene

Please don't take him even though you can

Jolene, jolene

Time for Me to Fly

I've been around for you

Been up and down for you

But I just can't get any relief

I've swallowed my pride for you

I've lived and lied for you

But you still make me feel like a thief

You've got me stealing your love away

'Cause you never give it

Peelin' the years away

And we can't relive it

I make you laugh and you make me cry

I believe it's time for me to fly

Time for me to fly

I've got to set myself free

Time for me to fly

That's how it's got to be

I know it hurts to say goodbye

But it's time for me to fly

You said we'd work it out

You said that you had no doubt

I thought we were really in love

Oh but I'm tired of holding on

To a feeling I know is gone

I do believe I've had enough

I've had enough of the falseness

Of a worn out relation

Enough of this jealousy and intoleration

I wonder why I even try

I believe it's time for me to fly

Time for me to fly

I've got to set myself free

Time for me to fly

That's just how it's got to be

I know it hurts to say goodbye

But it's time for me to fly

Time for me to fly

Time for me to fly

I got to set myself free

Time for me to fly

That's just how it's got to be

I make you laugh and you make me cry

I believe it's time for me to fly

Time for me to fly

That's how it's got to be

I know it hurts to say goodbye

But it's time for me to fly
