Music Monday: Dolly Parton – Hard Candy Christmas

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

The song and video I am sharing today is:

Dolly Parton – Hard Candy Christmas

Well, to continue my new tradition of using songs someone somewhere would find something inappropriate to complain about I chose a song that I first heard on the movie The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, funny movie but I’m sure it would offend a lot of people. This song though while being rather sad I’ve always found a rather beautiful tune anyway and have spent my share of holidays single so maybe that’s why I’ve become fond of it.

Lyrics: 

Hey, maybe I’ll dye my hair
Maybe I’ll move somewhere
Maybe I’ll get a car
Maybe I’ll drive so far
That I’ll lose track
Me, I’ll bounce right back
Maybe I’ll sleep real late
Maybe I’ll lose some weight
Maybe I’ll clear my junk
Maybe I’ll just get drunk on apple wine
Me, I’ll be just
Fine and dandy
Lord it’s like a hard candy Christmas
I’m barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won’t let
Sorrow bring me way down
I’ll be fine and dandy
Lord it’s like a hard candy Christmas
I’m barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won’t let
Sorrow get me way down
Hey, maybe I’ll learn to sew
Maybe I’ll just lie low
Maybe I’ll hit the bars
Maybe I’ll count the stars until dawn
Me, I will go on
Maybe I’ll settle down
Maybe I’ll just leave town
Maybe I’ll have some fun
Maybe I’ll meet someone
And make him mine
Me, I’ll be just
Fine and dandy
Lord it’s like a hard candy Christmas
I’m barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won’t let
Sorrow bring me way down
I’ll be fine and dandy
Lord it’s like a hard candy Christmas
I’m barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won’t let
Sorrow bring me way down
I’ll be fine and dandy
Lord it’s like a hard candy Christmas
I’m barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won’t let
Sorrow bring me way down
‘Cause I’ll be fine
(I’ll be fine)
Oh, I’ll be fine

    • Cyndi really did sound amazing, I wasn’t really expecting it when I played it. I really like the one Dolly does by herself too but I didn’t think I needed to share both the original and hers.
