Today is Dolly Parton's 66 birthday. Its rather unfortunate that she's more remembered for big, hair, big boobs, and mutant plastic surgery than her actually talent. I got this song off a country compilation tailored to death and misery. Who knew Dolly wrote about suicidal expecting mothers? Just a guitar and her voice this makes for a compelling performance. A nice slice of Americana from a bygone era where innocence and ignorance swept the land with an undercurrent of melancholy nostalgia.
