Dolly Parton - Hard Candy Christmas Lyrics

Hey, maybe I'll dye my hair
Maybe I'll move somewhere
Maybe I'll get a car
Maybe I'll drive so far
They'll all lose track
Me, I'll bounce right back
Maybe I'll sleep real late
Maybe I'll lose some weight
Maybe I'll clear my junk
Maybe I'll just get drunk on apple wine
Me, I'll be just

Fine and Dandy
Lord it's like a hard candy christmas
I'm barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won't let
Sorrow bring me way down

I'll be fine and dandy
Lord it's like a hard candy christmas
I'm barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won't let
Sorrow bring me way down

Hey, maybe I'll learn to sew
Maybe I'll just lie low
Maybe I'll hit the bars
Maybe I'll count the stars until dawn
Me, I will go on

Maybe I'll settle down
Maybe I'll just leave town
Maybe I'll have some fun
Maybe I'll meet someone
And make him mine
Me, I'll be just

Fine and dandy
Lord it's like a hard candy christmas
I'm barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won't let
Sorrow bring me way down

I'll be fine and dandy
Lord it's like a hard candy christmas
I'm barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won't let
Sorrow bring me way down

I'll be fine and dandy
Lord it's like a hard candy christmas
I'm barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won't let
Sorrow bring me way down

'Cause I'll be fine
(I'll be fine)
Oh, I'll be fine

    Such a beautiful song! It always takes me back to my days living with Mom, and all the wonderful memories I have of our Christmases together, baking cookies, decorating her tree, shopping for gifts, and wrapping presents. So bittersweet, it always brings tears to my eyes.

    Best version ever 2019 still listening

    jeff kreuziger

    here from Waupun wisconsin

    John Franklin

    ORIGINAL VERSION. This was from a movie she made many years ago. Been recorded by quite a few others, but Dolly knocks it out of the ball park.

    Michael O'Dell

    @jeff kreuziger here from Quincy,Illinois

  24. Dan Rowe

  28. Richard Maldonado

    With both my parents looking down from the heavens above and not having a woman to share my love, of course I have my kids...just sometimes it's a little bit hard to keep moving forward but I'm still here. This song has been with me since I was a kid, but I'll be fine!

    Sharon R

    Hang in there--you have more than most people, believe it or not!

  29. Nicole Sessions These young girls used this song as a hard christmas and fed the homeless.

  30. holtridge

    The best little whore house in Texas 1982.

  31. William Frank

    great song from a really fine movie

    Nicole Sessions

  32. Jeremy Brown

    I lost my grandmother on December 23,2007 every time I hear this song I cry

    Nicole Sessions

  33. jerry Wilson

    I did everything in song except I didn't get drunk

    Nicole Sessions

  34. Legion Ivory

    It's amazing when you realize she didn't even write this song.

    She's not only an amazing songwriter and musician, but also such an amazing singer that she can make any song her own. It's what she and Whitney both had in common.

  35. Shyianne Sansom

    This was my grandmas (my memes) song and she has been gone since 2014 and I still cry when I hear it 💕

  36. Erika Outdoors

    This song makes me so happy and so sad at the same time. I love it though. It makes me miss the old days, and better days with family. I love the way it makes me feel young and innocent again...if only for a moment. One of the best Christmas songs!!! 🌲❤️

    Christy Renea

    I feel the same way. This is one of the roughest Christmases I've had in a while.

  37. Karen Walton

    Listening to this in mid October 2019. Having one tough month. Thanks Dolly, I'll be fine.


    Karen Walton wish you all the best. Merry Christmas 🎄

  38. Susan Bailey

    love this song so much, not just at Christmas 🎄 always, love you so much dolly your songs put so much joy into my life, Sue 🌹

  42. Micia Starky

    always makes my tear up this one, I love I will always love you, but I think this is the best song of the film

  43. Princess Starlight

    Not usually my cup of tea- but this song has it! Been there!

  66. Melissa Short

    I love this song very much.

  67. Daniel Pokorney

    I cry a river when listening to this song. I have lost so many loved ones in my life and this song just seems to bring all the emotions out.

    Steve Forsythe

    Same here...even then it is hard to listen to sometimes. Merry Christmas!!

    Bobby Spencer

    I no how u fill about this song


    I can relate, pal.

    John Franklin

    Yup, I know. I have lost my entire family now. I literally have no family at all. Couple good friends from the 70s keep up with me. I'm 60 now and get along ok, still working etc...but at Christmas. Which I do love, it does remind me of all the great Christmases with my family. Sometimes being the LAST MAN STANDING is not such a good thing.

  68. Joseph Joseph

    You are the greatest sanger

  69. Hannah Salmons

    I listen to this cause I lost my 4 grandkids and trying to get them back and love them and it just it is just not Christmas with out them.

    Logan Rogan

    Hannah Salmons be strong

  70. Chenelle Simonetta

    Living legend. The best. Her voice gives me eargasms

  71. pet lover

    Dolly parton sang hard candy Christmas in a awesome movie called The best little whore house in Texas, if you have never seen it you should watch it,if you have seen it you should watch it again

  72. James McDunn

    I thought Cyndie Lauper sang this song beautifully, then I heard Dolly sing it and I had no choice but to punch myself in the face!

    Leslie Churchwell


  73. Jazmine Young

    Listening to Christmas songs on the 25 of November lol it's not even December, but never to early to listen to Christmas

    Patty Trowbridge

    Devin Nielson well it is a very beautiful song

  74. Mark Cole

    I have always felt so sad whenever I hear this song! Must be God's way of telling me something when I need it!!!!

  75. jlovera7723

    this is definetely a beatiful song, however has nothing to do with Christmas .....ironic right?


    Although I agree with everything you say about some people (myself included)having a hard time during the holidays, the bottom line is that Dolly used this song as a reference to the sadness she and the girls in the movie felt by having to leave the whorehouse behind. she compared this feeling of sadness to what some people used to feel when all they had in the old days was HARD CANDY for Christmas. because they were poor and that is all they could afford. this song and the movie had nothing to do with Christmas just the fact that she used it in the song to make a comparison does not make it a Christmas song. today it is played during the holiday season and of course you can equate it to whatever feelings or situations we may encounter during this time, but it was never meant to be a Christmas song otherwise it would have been a Christmas movie and not about a whore house.


    , Dolly came out with the song on an album before she starred in the Best little whorehouse in Texas.

    Rockabilly Keith

    uthornss That was a Very Beautiful description of the song! Right you are!!!! Not everyone's Christmas is a happy one, some people are struggling. That's what the song is about.

    Dustin Campbell

    @userofname1 I'm not sure what point you are making. It was still written for Best Little Whorehouse in Texas by Carol Hall

    Dustin Campbell

    @uthornss I disagree that it's a Christmas song. The lyrics are about the prostitutes deciding what to do with their lives now that the brothel is shut down. The only thing that ties it to Christmas is they use a "Hard Candy Christmas" as a other words, if Carol Hall had compared it to any other hardship, it would have zero affiliation with Christmas...saying the whole song is a Christmas song because of one simile is a bit of a disconnect.

  76. Joy Strittmatter

    my sister told me it wasn't Christmas till she heard this and every year I play it have a good cry and remember her. Hope you are keeping the angles company did.

    Virginia Terry

    Joy Strittmatter god bless you ans your sister

    Selina S

    God bless you and your family may she rest in peace

    Genie Bice



    My condolences

    Max-Jayde Romero

    This made me sentimental ... I hope all is excellent for you :)

  77. Crystal Krevs

    I love this song it is so beautiful!!

  78. Misty Vaughn

    what can you say? simply beautiful... the older I get the more I see the beauty in this song...

  79. Pauline

    Hello, Jamie. You'll "be fine and dandy."

  80. Jamie

    I heard this song before I was diagnosed with my illness and I realized it just really boosted my self esteem. It was like this song directly spoke to me. For three years I listened to this song while waiting to get proper treatment for my illness until my legs gave out. This was the song that gave me strength as we traveled for treatment. This song gives me strength as I get infusions of medication every few weeks to manage this illness. This song gives me strength when my pain is just too high to manage with normal means and I can't do anything but focus on Dolly's voice and these beautiful lyrics that remind me that somehow "I'll be fine".

    I have this album's version on my iPod, though I do love the multi singer (actress) version. This song is from a wonderful musical and I'm glad it's graduated to not just classic musical status, but Christmas classic status.

    kurt schellens

    +Jamie have a merry christmas and a happy new year jamie (from a stranger who read youre comment ) ;)

    Chuck Moore

    Jamie I hope by now you are finished with whatever treatments you were receiving and are now on your way to recovery! ;)
