Dolly wrote it and makes tons of money every time it is sung; But, Dolly did NOT write
this FOR Whitney. A few years back Whitney actually ASKED Dolly if she could sing it!! Dolly wrote it in 1974. It was directed toward Porter Wagoner for she was professionally departing HIS show and she was recognizing him for the devotion/friendship he had given her.

Dolly Parton, then they decides to turn it into Whitney's. They didn't even plan on doing it in the BodyGuard.
