A Habit I Can’t Break – Dolly Parton

(B. Owens)

Loving you isn’t good for me
You keep my tears flowing
If I left you I couldn’t stay gone
So there’s no use in going
Loving you is a habit I can’t break

I haven’t found a way yet
But I’ve been trying
To stop loving you but I can’t wait
There’s no use in lyin’

Loving you is a habit I can’t break

Loving you is a habit I can’t break
I’ve been loving you much too long now
To change the way I feel
So I might as well get used to these heartaches

Loving you is a habit I can’t break

A Few Old Memories – Dolly Parton

(Hazel Dickens)

Just a few old memories
Slipped in through my door
Though I thought I had closed it
So tightly before
I can’t understand it
Why it should bother my mind
For it all belongs to another place and time

Just a few old keep-sakes
Way back on the shelf
No, they don’t mean nothin’
Well I’m surprised they’re still left
Just a few old love letters
With the edges all brown
And an old faded picture
I keep turned upside-down

Just a few old memories
Going way back in time
Well I can hardly remember
I don’t know why I’m cryin’
I can’t understand it
Well I’m surprised myself
First thing tomorrow morning
I’ll clean off that shelf

Just a few old keep-sakes
Way back on the shelf
No, they don’t mean nothin’
Well I’m surprised that they’re left
Just a few old love letters
With their edges all brown
And an old faded picture
I keep turned upside-down

9 To 5 – Dolly Parton

Tumble outta bed
And stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition
Yawnin’ and stretchin’ and try to come to life

Jump in the shower
And the blood starts pumpin’
Out on the streets
The traffic starts jumpin’
With folks like me on the job from 9 to 5

Workin’ 9 to 5
What a way to make a livin’
Barely gettin’ by
It’s all takin’
And no givin’
They just use your mind
And they never give you credit
It’s enough to drive you
Crazy if you let it

9 to 5, for service and devotion
You would think that I
Would deserve a fair promotion
Want to move ahead
But the boss won’t seem to let me
I swear sometimes that man is out to get me
Mmmmm…

They let your dream
Just a’ watch ’em shatter
You’re just a step
On the boss man’s ladder
But you got dream he’ll never take away

In the same boat
With a lot of your friends
Waitin’ for the day
Your ship ‘ll come in
And the tide’s gonna turn
An’ it’s all gonna roll you away

Workin’ 9 to 5
What a way to make a livin’
Barely gettin’ by
It’s all takin’
And no givin’
They just use your mind
And you never get the credit
It’s enough to drive you
Crazy if you let it

9 to 5, yeah, they got you where they want you
There’s a better life
And you think about it don’t you
It’s a rich man’s game
No matter what they call it
And you spend your life
Putting money in his wallet

Workin’ 9 to 5
What a way to make a livin’
Barely gettin’ by
It’s all takin’
And no givin’
They just use you mind
And they never give you credit
It’s enough to drive you
Crazy if you love it

9 to 5, yeah, they got you where they want you
There’s a better life
And you think about it don’t you
It’s a rich man’s game
No matter what they call it
And you spend your life
Putting money in his wallet

Take Me Back – Dolly Parton

(Dolly Parton)

Take me back, oh precious memories
To the days forever gone
I can still remember Mama washing on a rub board
On the back porch, while us kids played in the yard
Mama always seemed to be so happy and content
She never seemed to mind that times were hard

She went about her work singin’ some old favorite song of hers
And often singin’ favorite songs for us
And she was satisfied just bein’ Mama to us children
And the only woman Daddy ever loved

Take me back to Mama’s bosom
Back to Daddy’s lovin’ arms
Take me back, oh precious memories
To the days forever gone

I can still remember us a runnin’ to meet Daddy
In the evening when his working day was done
When Daddy saw us comin’ he would bend his tired old back
Holdin’ out his arms, and into them we’d run

And he’d hold us for a minute, we’d all walk home together
While Mama waited for him at the door
And he was satisfied just bein’ Daddy to us children
And the man my Mama lived her whole life for

Take me back to Mama’s bosom
Back to Daddy’s lovin’ arms
Take me back, oh precious memories
To the days forever gone
Take me back, oh precious memories
To the days forever gone

Take Me Back To The Country – Dolly Parton

(Karen Staley)

Well this big city life is gettin’ me down
There’s just too many people around
There’s dirt in the air and crime in the street
High-rise buildings and cold concrete
This rat race sure enough takes a toll
I wanna run off to my fishin’ hole
Take me back take me back
Take me back to the country
Take me back take me back
Take me back to the country

Where the stars at night
Outshine those city lights
Take me back to the country
Where the eagles fly
And the treetops touch the sky
Take me back to the country

This traffic jam is makin’ me mad
I miss the simple life I had
Peace and quite runnin’ free
I wanna go home to my family
I’m sick of the clock, sick of the phone
Out in the country my time’s my own
Take me back take me back
Take me back to the country
Take me back take me back
Take me back to the country

Where the stars at night
Outshine those city lights
Take me back to the country
Where the eagles fly
And the treetops touch the sky
Take me back to the country

Where the stars at night
Outshine those city lights
Take me back to the country
Where the eagles fly
And the treetops touch the sky
Take me back to the country
Take me back to the country

I Am Ready – Dolly Parton

(Rachel Parton Dennison)

I am ready
Oh, my children
When Jesus knocks at my door
I’ll be there come morning
Don’t weep for me
I’ll be with my Lord

There’s my bible on the table
Read it to me once more
I can hear God’s heavenly angels
Singing me on through heaven’s door

Hallelujah Lord
I am ready
No more sorrow
Hallelujah, yes
I am ready, I am ready
I am ready to go

Oh, Hosanna
Take my hand now
Lead me to the promised land now
I am ready, I am ready
Hallelujah, I am ready to go
Oh, Hosanna
I am ready to go
I can hear God’s heavenly angels
Singing me on through heaven’s door
Singing me on through heaven’s door
And I am ready

Games People Play – Dolly Parton

(Joe South)

Oh the games people play now
Every night and every day now
Never meaning what they say now
Never saying what they mean
Oh they whine away the hours
In their ivory towers
Til they’re covered up with flowers
In the back of a black limousine

La la la mmm da da da
La la la mmm da da dee
I’m talkin’ ’bout you and me
And the games people play

Oh they make one another cry
Break their hearts and they say good-bye
Cross their heart and they hope to die
That the other was to blame
Neither one will ever give in
So they gaze at an eight by ten
Thinkin’ ’bout the way it might have been
And it’s a dirty rotten shame

La la la mmm da da da
La la la mmm da da dee
I’m talkin’ ’bout you and me
And the games people play

Oh they teach how to meditate
Read your horoscope and teach you faith
The furthermore the hell with hate
Come on and get on board
Look around and tell me what you see
What’s a-happenin’ to you and to me
God grant me the serenity
To just remember who I am

La la la mmm da da da
La la la mmm da da dee
I’m talkin’ ’bout you and me
And the games people play

Gamble Either Way – Dolly Parton

(Dolly Parton)

Being born was the worse and the first mistake I ever made
The doctor didn?t spank me, he just slapped me in the face
And the cup of love was always quenching someone else’s thirst
Leaving me to swallow the bitter taste of hurt
‘Cause I was raised an orphan
Never wanted as a kid until the year I turned 13
Then everybody did, strangers pass me back and forth
Men just took me as they pleased
And others had a Cinderella slave to cook and clean and weep

Though the deck is stacked against you
Win or lose, you have to play
The hand a life has dealt you
And It?s a gamble either way

On a dust road at 15 in a yellow cotton dress
With the desert sun like an angry dragon breathing down my neck
And the dry cracked plains would make me think of a prehistoric time
Or should I fear what lay before me less than what I’d left behind
A 15 year old girl don?t have no trouble hitching rides
But sometimes when you’re riding free
You?ll pay the highest price
On back roads and in back seats
And in a cheap highway motel
But what?s a few more strangers in a life of nothing else

Though the deck is stacked against you
Win or lose, you have to play
The hand a life has dealt you
And It?s a gamble either way

16 caught me crying, underneath the scarlet light
On the door steps of a stranger on a cold and rainy night
When I walked into the parlour here
Other pieces seemed to fit
I was good at pleasing strangers
So I made the most of it

Either way it?s all a gamble
So view the stakes and know the odds
And lay your cards upon the table
Do all the dealing from the top

Though the deck is stacked against you
Win or lose, you have to play
The hand a life has dealt you
And It?s a gamble either way

Dolly Parton – Early Morning Breeze

(Dolly Parton)

I open up my door to greet the early morning sun
Closing it behind me and away I do run
To the meadow where the meadow lark is singing in the tree
In the meadow I go walking in the early morning breeze
I cup my hands to catch a multi-colored butterfly
Perched upon the petals of flowers growing wild
Freeing it I watch it as it flies away from me
To visit with the flowers in the early morning breeze

Rainbow colored flowers kissed with early morning sun
The aster and the dahlia and wild geraniums
Drops of morning due still linger on the iris leaves
In the meadow where I’m walking in the early morning breeze

Misty-eyed I look about the meadow where I stray
For its there I find the courage to greet the coming day
For there among the flowers I kneel gently to my knees
To have a word with God in the early mornig breeze

A rainbow colored meadow kissed with early morning sun
The aster and the dahlia and wild geraniums
Drops of morning due still linger on the iris leaves
In the meadow where I’m walking in the early morning breeze

Dolly Parton – Eagle When She Flies

(Dolly Parton)

She’s been there, God knows, she’s been there
She has seen and done it all
She’s a woman, she know how to
Dish it out or take it all
Her heart’s as soft as feathers
Still she weathers stormy skies
And she’s a sparrow when she’s broken
But she’s an eagle when she flies

A kaleidoscope of colors
You can toss her around and round
You can keep her in you vision
But you’ll never keep her down
She’s a lover, she’s a mother
She’s a friend and she’s a wife
And she’s a sparrow when she’s broken
But she’s an eagle when she flies

Gentle as the sweet magnolia
Strong as steel, her faith and pride
She’s an everlasting shoulder
She’s the leaning post of life
She hurts deep and when she weeps
She’s just as fragile as a child
And she’s a sparrow when she’s broken
But she’s an eagle when she flies

She’s a sparrow when she’s broken
But she’s an eagle when she flies
Oh, bless her, Lord
She’s an eagle when she flies Check out more Lyrics from Dolly Parton.
