Dolly Parton is no stranger to pen & paper

Dolly Parton keeps notepads at hand, just in case she thinks of an idea for a song.

The country music star, and Miley Cyrus’ godmother, is always jotting down lyrics in her yellow legal pad.

“For the lyrics there are my yellow legal pads, and I keep a notepad at my bedside because I never remember things the next day as I think I will,” Dolly said.

“I write in longhand and like seeing my work without using my glasses. Words and titles come to me all the time; I have lists of them. And often I’ll just start pickin’ and singin,’ putting down a song, or more than one, almost every day. It’s fun, it’s work, it’s therapy. I just have lots of ideas.”
