Dolly Parton performs “I Will Always Love You”

"I Will Always Love You" is a song originally written and recorded in 1973 by American singer-songwriter Dolly Parton. Her country version of the track was released in 1974 as a single and was written as a farewell to her one-time partner and mentor of seven years, Porter Wagoner, following Parton's decision to pursue a solo career.

 

Parton's version of "I Will Always Love You" was a commercial success. It reached number one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart twice. It first reached number one in June 1974, and then in October 1982, with her re-recording on the soundtrack of the movie version of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Thus, she achieved the number one position twice with the same song, a rare feat that Chubby Checker had done previously with "The Twist" becoming number one in 1960 and again in 1962.

Dolly Parton - I Will Always Love You Lyrics

 

If I should stay

I would only be in your way

So I'll go, but I know

I'll think of you each step of the way

And I will always love you

I will always love you

Bitter-sweet memories

That's all I am taking with me

Good-bye, please don't cry

We both know that I'm not

What you need

I will always love you

I will always love you

 

I hope life, treats you kind

And I hope that you have all

That you ever dreamed of

And I wish you joy

And happiness

But above all of this

I wish you love

And I will always love you

I will always love you

I will always love you
