'Please don't take him just because you can'


You would never think Dolly Parton would have a problem holding onto her man and whatever the stories/background of the song are - Dolly certainly makes you believe this is happening. Her pleading lyrics of this siren sucking in her partner are heartbreaking. It also deserves top marks for the thumb-picked guitar intro.


It will forever be a karaoke classic and a guaranteed sing-along in every car journey. Plus it's country through and through!
