Dolly Parton looks ahead to brighter days in her brand new song, “When Life Is Good Again,” inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The just-released tune finds Parton looking forward to life after the global health crisis. Throughout the song, the Tennessee native promises to live life to the fullest and take the opportunity to embrace the little things when all of this passes. The heartfelt track also encourages listeners to be better people.
“I’ll sell my boat and fly my kite/Walk in the park, go out at night/And hold my loved ones extra tight/When everything is on the mend/I’ll even drink with my old friends/Sing and play my mandolin,” she sings.
“When Life Is Good Again” also serves as a reminder that this we’re all in this together, and that even though times may be tough, it will someday be a distant memory.
“We’ll make it through this long dark night/ Darkness fades when faced with light/ And everything’s gonna be alright/ When life is good again,” she promises.
Dolly Parton has done an exceptional job of bringing a bit of positivity to her fans throughout quarantine. She recently penned a hilarious poem about coronavirus, has been reading bedtime stories to her young fans on YouTube each week and even donated $1 million to help fund coronavirus research at Nashville’s Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
