Dolly Parton And Jerry Reed She Got The Goldmine Live On Dolly Parton Show
In 1987, Reed, guest-starring on Dolly Parton’s TV show Dolly!, performed a duet version of “She Got the Goldmine” with Parton, with an additional verse written for Parton from the ex-wife’s perspective: the house, television and cars are all broken-down, the alimony checks bounce and the kids all look just like the ex-husband.
Jerry Reed She Got The Goldmine Lyrics
Well, I guess it was back in ’63
When eatin’ my cookin’ got the better of me
So I asked this little girl I was goin’ with to be my wife
Well, she said she would, so I said â€œI doâ€
But I’da said I wouldn’t if I’da just knew
How sayin’ â€œI doâ€ was gonna screw up all of my life!
