Before anyone camp got ahold of her. This always was a beautiful, sincere song. (Whitney fucked it up with her shrieking. Just as the drag queens fuck up Dolly with their own shrieking. Here's Dolly in her original country element, with the song she herself wrote, before being "interpreted.")
p.s. An interesting side-note: Elvis wanted to record the song, but he demanded a 50% ownership of it. Dolly refused. Way to go, girl!
