* CommonMeter: The verses to "Yellow Roses".



* RereleaseTheSong: She re-released "I Will Always Love You" in 1982, eight years after the original. Both versions went to #1 on the country charts. She cut it a third time in 1995 with Music/VinceGill and, although it was never officially released as a single, it went to #15. Music/WhitneyHouston's cover is ''still'' the [[CoveredUp more famous version]], and Dolly herself loved it.

\n->''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.''

But her career is far more than just singing. Parton has starred in the movies ''NineToFive'' and ''Film/TheBestLittleWhorehouseInTexas'', both of which earned her Golden Globe nominations. She has also starred in several television series, mostly in cameo or performing roles.
