Six Years before she wrote "I Will Always Love You," Dolly Parton penned this song. In an interview with Mojo magazine June 2008 the country singer-songwriter 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."
