“I got up, I started writing this song over a period of weeks, months”, she said. “I got up, I started writing this song over a period of weeks, months”. 

The track’s lyrics show Parton recounting this amazing experience.

Don’t make me have to come down there / My children, you had best beware / If you don’t pay attention, consequences will be dire / Don’t make me have to come down there”. 

Politics, earthquakes, erratic weather / Pandemics, war, and hate,” Parton sings on its bridge. “Still, you’d rather turn a deaf ear, a blind eye / I am wondering whether I should take my Bible belt and whip you into shape”. 

Earlier this week, Parton confirmed that household names including Stevie Nicks, Steven Perry, Paul McCartney and Steven Tyler are to feature on this album.

“Stevie Nicks… we just finished our song last night”, she said.

“I’m even gonna have Cher on [the album],” Parton added. “I’ve been getting a song for her, we’ve been trying to get the right thing together. But that’s going to be a big thrill I think”.
