🎶 Your virus is beyond compare
With spikey bursts of auburn hair
That covid, that corona emerald green
Your lockdowns took up all the spring
Your bubbles soft like summer rain
The whole world waits alone for you

When the news broke that Dolly Parton had quietly given a million dollars to Vanderbilt University back in April to fund COVID-19 vaccine research, which was used to help develop the Moderna vaccine, Gretchen McCulloch of Wired wrote some new lyrics to Parton’s song “Jolene.” Ryan Cordell put the lyrics to music while his family slept.
I couldn’t resist trying it immediately, though I had to sing a bit more quietly than I typically would—for this tune in particular—because my family’s all asleep right now. But you can see it scans, good enough for country at least! pic.twitter.com/joQL29e7Uk
