From Here to the Moon and Back

Album: Blue Smoke (2014)
  • I could hold out my arms, say, "I love you this much"
    I could tell you how long I will long for your touch
    How much and how far would I go to prove
    The depth and the breadth of my love for you?

    From here to the moon and back
    Who else in this world will love you like that?
    Love everlasting, I promise you that
    From here to the moon and back
    From here to the moon and back

    I want you to know you can always depend
    On promises made and love without end
    No need to wonder how faithful I'll be
    Now and on into eternity

    From here to the moon and back
    Who else in this world will love you like that?
    Forever and always, I'll be where you're at
    From here to the moon and back
    From here to the moon and back

    I would blow you a kiss from the star where I sit
    I would call out your name to echo through the vast
    Thank heaven for you and to God, tip my hat
    From here to the moon and back
    And I'll spend forever just proving that fact
    From here to the moon and back
    From here to the moon and back Writer/s: Dolly Parton

  • Vickie S. from Marion, IowaFirst, I have been a fan of you, Dolly Pardon for over 50 years. You have an amazing voice, talent stage presence, a wonderful laugh, and a kind heart that touches everyone who comes in contact with you. You are admired by more people than ever come in contact with you or make the effort to write to you. I recently read about your generous donations to hospitals because of leukemia, cancer, and most recently this Covid virus . You are a wonderful humanitarian and always have been and I love it that you stay True to your roots and family.

    I was wondering if you can help me with something very important. I love this song you sing, “From here to the moon and back”, with Chris Kristofferson. I have two young granddaughters that I have been singing that song to them since they were babies and now they are six and seven years of age. Your mother is very ill in fact terminally ill and has gone blind. I cannot seem to find a music box anywhere with your lovely song on it. I’ve even search Dollywood for one. Do you know has one ever been made and if so how I might get a hold of Two of them, so that my granddaughters might be comforted anytime their little hearts are hearting? My daughter and I both had major heart attacks in 2018- Ashley was 33 yrs, and I was early 60s. She was in a coma for two months and I’m a cancer survivor and I’ve not been able to see my daughter or my granddaughter‘s in two years. I believe his music boxes would help the girls so much. If you could please give me any advice on where I might be able to find a music box with your beautiful song in it, I would be eternally grateful. I still have a video of my two-year-old granddaughter singing your song with me as we were getting ready to say goodbye to each other and try not to cry at the same time we were singing your song.
