"Always" was recorded face to face with live acoustic guitars, bass, drums and vocals. We added electric guitar and mysterious magical pedal steel to complete this classic duet. This song is a little piece of my south-western dreams of being a country starlet on the open road, making my way from each little tavern to share my simple songs and stories. May it bring you "joy and happiness, but above all, love." -Dolly Parton


Well get out of your head
Forget every word she ever said
That made you cry
Exonerate yourself and those you love

Forever, always
That's the vow I make
For you I'd break my own heart
Like the wind and the rain
Forever, always

Well I'm not a saint
But I've been working hard to save myself
from the same old mistakes
That happened long ago
They're not my own

Forever, always
That's the vow I make
For you I'd break my own heart
Every storm we face
Forever, always
