But Parton, in describing those old folk songs that, "Mamma used to sing. brought over from the Old World", decided that the best way to showcase how sad and "plum pitiful" some of those old songs really were was to sing a few verses of "Bury Me Beneath the Willow" (via YouTube).

Dolly Parton was the featured virtual guest on Tuesday's episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where the country singer/songwriter was promoting her forthcoming autobiography/coffee table book, Songteller: My Life in Lyrics, due out next month.

Whitney Houston's rendition of the Dolly classic "I Will Always Love You" proves that.

Dolly Parton made Stephen Colbert emotional during an appearance on "The Late Show". As she confirmed to Colbert, it's her "very favorite" song.

"We used to cry when mama would sing that", Parton laughed. "I should calm myself down before you cry yourself to death and can't finish your show".

She is a positive person and trying to make something good of the situation so Dolly is taking this time to write songs. According to an Amazon listing, the book is written by Parton, who explores "the songs that have defined her journey". "Mama would cry, we'd cry". "Like a lot of Americans, I'm under a lot of stress right now, Dolly", Colbert replied, laughing as he continued to wipe away tears. "And you got under my tripwire right there". "Those old songs were just fantastic though", she added.

"Yeah, I think that cleanses your soul", Parton answered. Water washes it out.

"There's just something about writing songs that's just kind of, like, my personal time with God", she says. "That's what tears are for, I think".
