Released: October 1973

Dolly Parton's signature smash actually limped to a mere No.60 in the States but it endures as an oddly jaunty plea to the titular stunner to leave Dolly's man alone, even though she could take him any time she likes. There's no artifice here – which is Parton's main strength. However brassy and unreal she can be, she's never less than pure-hearted. Later covered by the White Stripes.
