The country music queen was honored to join forces with the Bee Gees icon Sir Barry Gibb for a special version of the legendary hit song “Words” on his new album “Greenfields: The Gibb Brothers Songbook, Vol.1.” Scroll down to listen to the legendary stars reunion!
Barry Gibb has been creating amazing music for over 60 years. The Bee Gees’ leading vocalist returns with “Greenfields: The Gibb Brothers Songbook, Vol.1,” a collaboration album that revisits the vocal group’s incredible catalog.
Dolly Parton was proud to participate in the project performing an amazing country duet on the famous song “Word.” The Bee Gees originally released the single in 1968, the lyrics were written by the famous brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb.
The song begins with a melancholic piano melody and Parton’s tender voice singing the first verse that talks about hope for a new beginning. It seems so particularly relevant and topical in these times of crisis. It’s about a brand new story.
Gibb’s voice appears, and he and Parton’s voices join together and take the song to another level with deep feeling and a weeping steel guitar gently underscores the sentiment of the lyrics:
“It’s only words, and words are all I have to take your heart away.”
Many talented artists, including Elvis Presley, Glen Campbell, Roy Orbison, and Rita Coolidge have recorded a version of “Words.” We believe that Dolly Parton and Barry Gibb version is one of the most moving and beautiful of all time!
