Dolly Parton New Song Tells A Big Story
“Put on my jeans / My favorite shirt / Pull up my boots / And hit the dirt / Finally doing something I’ve dreamed of for years / Don’t know quite/ What to expect / A little scared / But what the heck / My desire is always greater than my fear.”
The song shows just how the character in the new song is preparing to try and make it big. How she wants to get to Nashville to live out her dreams. Then the chorus kicks in and really shows what the new Dolly Parton song is really all about.
“Big dreams and faded jeans / Fit together like a team / Always busting at the seams / Big dreams and faded jeans / Just my old guitar and me / Out to find my destiny / Nashville is the place to be / For big dreams and faded jeans”
Put out my thumb / And wish for luck / To hitch a car / A semi truck / Sooner or later one will catch me in their beams / Then I’ll be on my way at last / Find a future / Lose a past / Waiting silent as the passion in me screams
