PATCHWORK Y MÚSICA COUNTRY (Patchwork and country music)

(Scroll down for ENGLISH)

Dolly Parton es rubia y puede que nunca se haya visto los zapatos, pero entre los miles de canciones que escribió, hay una canción que es la esencia misma
del
patchwork. 

(1) Dolly


La canción Abrigo de muchos colores cuenta la historia de un abrigo que su madre le hizo con trocitos de telas que alguien les dio. Y dice que estaba tan orgullosa de su abrigo... "Uno es pobre sólo si elige serlo"

Dos frases famosas de Dolly son
  •  "Espero que la gente se dé cuenta de que hay un cerebro debajo del pelo, y un corazón debajo de las tetas." (I hope people realize that there is a brain underneath the hair and a heart underneath the boobs.) 
  • "No me ofenden todos esos chistes de rubias tontas porque sé que no soy tonta, ...y también sé que no soy rubia" ("I'm not offended by all the dumb blond jokes because I know I'm not dumb... and I also know that I'm not blond.)

Dolly Parton is blond and may have never seen her own shoes, but among the thousands of songs she's written, there is one that is the very essence of patchwork.

The song Coat of many colors  refers to a coat that her mother made for her with scraps of fabric that somebody gave them. And she says she was proud of it, "One is only poor only if they choose to be..."

Two of Dolly's famous phrases are
  •  "I hope people realise that  there is a brain underneath the hair and a heart underneath the boobs!"  
  • "I'm not offended by all the dumb blond jokes because I know I'm not dumb... and I also know that I'm not blond."
