Blue Smoke Tour…. Dolly Parton

We have had to wait until last night for the last part of our Christmas present, it was worth the wait though…

We had tickets to go and see Dolly Parton live in concert, and she performed brilliantly… I don’t know where she gets the energy from! I was exhausted….

I love listening to Dolly particularly as she doesn’t shy away from her roots and the values she has been brought up with. Her love for her family and God shines through.

Last night was no exception in fact there was far more testimony than when we last saw her in September 2011. She is quite an inspiration and she weaves her love and life experience into her songs.


One of the songs made us feel like we were at a mega church…

“Lay Your Hands On Me”

Lay Your hands on me
Lay Your hands on me
Lay Your hands on me

Lord, I’m ready, I’m willing
And You’re able
To feel my empty cup at the
Master’s table

‘Cause I’m thirsty,
I’m hungry, my eyes aching
You say your love is mine
For the taking

Lord, what I am is
Exactly what you see
And I’m asking you to rescue me

Forgive of my sins and set me free
Lord, if you want me then
Lay Your hands on me


I’m a sinner, I’m a loser, I’m a seeker
I need to learn to live, Lord, you’re the teacher
Show me how to get my feet up off the ground
Teach me how to fly and never come back down

Everything you are is all I need
And your satisfaction is guaranteed
You sacrificed it all to set me free
So, if you want me



While others moved you at your core, along with a range of some of the best…

If you have the chance to go and see her in concert – Go! It is well worth going to.
