Song Lyric Sunday: Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, & Linda Rondstadt–Making Plans

Song Lyric Sunday was created by blogger Helen Vadahti. If you’d like to participate, click here for guidelines.

This week’s theme is “plan.” The song I’m featuring today is about planning to grieve and be lonely after your lover leaves you. I think this can also apply to when your significant other is about to die. During the last days of my late husband’s life, I think I was making plans to be without him, not that I wanted to of course. Enjoy the song, and have a great day.

Making Plans

[Verse]
You say tomorrow you’re going
It’s so hard for me to believe
I’m making plans for the heartaches
Because you’re making plans to leave
The tears for me will be falling
Like a tree shedding its leaves
I’m making plans for the tear drops
Because you’re making plans to leave
You’re making plans to forget me
I’m making plans to miss you
I’m getting ready ti grieve
I’m making plans to be lonesome
Because you’re making plans to leave
I’m making plans to be lonesome
Because you’re making plans to leave

Songwriters: Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, and Emmylou Harris
