More Holiday Truth...

I forgot to mention the other holiday item I found last weekend. On my drive to my dad's house on Thanksgiving I came across a radio station already playing holiday music. Ugh! I was about to change the station when they announced the next song, Hard Candy Christmas sung by Dolly Parton. I had never heard of it and since it wasn't one of the traditional songs I gave it a listen...and loved it.

You can pretty much always depend on Dolly to keep it real...in song lyrics, that is. (As it turns out, she didn't write this one, but it has her sensibility.)

It's a holiday song for those who aren't too thrilled with the holiday season, their lives, and how they're doing at this time of the year. Here's the song:



And here are the lyrics*.


* Home sewers check out the third stanza!

I have admired Dolly forever! She does tell it like it is. She has done amazing things in her career. She has done even more amazing things for others, especially the children of Tennessee.

Dolly is my idol! Well, not really, but if I had one other than God, she would be it. I love her voice, her honesty, her hard work and determination, and most of all her good works for others.

I think that song is from Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Nothing says holidays like a movie about hookers! ;-)
