This Christmas, celebrate with Dolly Parton classics! Everyone's favorite blonde-bombshell has a ton of holiday songs just waiting to be heard, and we've uncovered one of our favorites to share with y'all.

The song "Hard Candy Christmas" was written by Carol Hall originally for a musical called The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Parton played 'Miss Mona' in the film version of the musical in 1982. She later recorded the song as a Christmas single in that same year. It reached #8 on the country singles chart and played on the radio during the holiday season throughout much of the 1980s and 1990s.

This particular video showcases Parton in a traditional holiday scene. Surrounded by Christmas trees, lights, and other festive decor she moves about the room singing the somewhat somber yule-tide lyrics. What is Christmas music without a little lost love?!

Either way, the songs message is beautiful and it remains a strong contender in our Christmas favorites. 

Watch Parton's "Hard Candy Christmas" below for your daily dose of holiday cheer!

LYRICS BELOW  

Hey, maybe I'll dye my hair

Maybe I'll move somewhere
Maybe I'll get a car
Maybe I'll drive so far they'll all lose track
Me, I'll bounce right back

Maybe I'll sleep real late
Maybe I'll lose some weight
Maybe I'll clear my junk
Maybe I'll just get drunk on apple wine
Me, I'll be just

Fine and dandy
Lord it's like a hard candy Christmas
I'm barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won't let
Sorrow bring me way down

I'll be fine and dandy
Lord it's like a hard candy Christmas
I'm barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won't let
Sorrow bring me way down

Hey, maybe I'll learn to sew
Maybe I'll just lie low
Maybe I'll hit the bars
Maybe I'll count the stars until dawn
Me, I will go on

Maybe I'll settle down
Maybe I'll just leave town
Maybe I'll have some fun
Maybe I'll meet someone and make him mine
Me, I'll be just

Fine and dandy
Lord it's like a hard candy Christmas
I'm barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won't let
Sorrow bring me way down

I'll be fine and dandy
Lord it's like a hard candy Christmas
I'm barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won't let
Sorrow bring me way down

I'll be fine and dandy
Lord it's like a hard candy Christmas
I'm barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won't let
Sorrow bring me way down

'Cause I'll be fine
(I'll be fine)
Oh, I'll be fine
