," Dolly Parton penned this comical ditty about a gold digger who marries an oil baron. In an interview with Mojo
magazine June 2008, the country singer-songwriter said this was not a first version of her more famous number: "That was not the first version of 'I Will Always Love You'! I was just playing off the oil wells and Texan men, a spoof. Sometimes I write silly stuff just to get my wit going and mind working. That was a song I probably wrote while I was primed to write something good."
