Dolly Parton Wrote "I Will Always Love You" For Her Boss (VIDEO)

Dolly parton Songs | Dolly Parton Wrote

Who knew that Dolly Parton's classic love song "I Will Always Love You", was written for her former boss?!

Before Dolly Parton was the country music icon she is today, she was seen on the Porter Wagoner Show singing duets with Porter Wagoner himself, starting in 1967. After the success of her song "Jolene", Dolly made a valuable decision for her career, and announced her split from Porter in 1974. To soften the blow, Dolly wrote the classic song (and future greatest love song) "I Will Always Love You" for her mentor, boss and duet-partner Porter Wagoner. 

Although Porter was still pretty upset, the song was a huge success, and hit #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart that same year. The song also made a comeback when Dolly re-introduced the classic tune in 1982, and hit #1 on the charts that year as well. 

Check out the video to see Dolly Parton singing "I Will Always Love You" for her boss on the Porter Wagoner Show, and you'll be glad you did!


If I should stay
Well, I would only be in your way
And so I'll go, and yet I know
That I'll think of you each step of my way
And I will always love you
I will always love you
Bitter-sweet memories
That's all I have, and all I'm taking with me
Good-bye, oh, please don't cry
'Cause we both know that I'm not
What you need
I will always love you
I will always love you

And I hope life, will treat you kind
And I hope that you have all
That you ever dreamed of
Oh, I do wish you joy
And I wish you happiness
But above all this
I wish you love
I love you, I will always love

I, I will always, always love you
I will always love you
I will always love you
I will always love you
