About Two Doors Down

"Two Doors Down" was a song written and performed by Dolly Parton, which provided a 1978 U. S. country and pop hit for her. The song was sung from the perspective of a woman who has just broken up with her boyfriend and is debating attending a party two doors down the hall from her apartment. She decides to go, meets a new man and returns with him to her own apartment "two doors down". It was included on Parton's 1977 Here You Come Again album, but before Parton could release it as the album's second single in March 1978, singer Zella Lehr released a cover version that became a top ten U. S. country hit. While Lehr's version was on the country charts, the title cut of Here You Come Again was becoming a much bigger pop hit than Parton had anticipated. Wanting to capitalize on her newfound pop success (and also not wanting to compete with Lehr's country version of the song) Parton rerecorded a more loose, pop-oriented version of "Two Doors Down" with a slight disco flavoring. She released the new version on a double-A-sided single, with the other side, "It's All Wrong, but It's All Right" intended for country airplay, and "Two Doors Down" intended for the pop airplay. The single topped the U. S. country charts, and was a top-20 pop hit for Parton, and went on to be one of her most popular hits. Also in 1978 Joe Thomas did his own disco cover of this song.

Two doors down they're laughing and drinking and having a party
And two doors down they're not aware that I'm around
But here I am crying my heart out, feeling sorry
But they're having a party just two doors down

I think I'll dry these useless tears and get myself together
I think I'll wander down the hall and have a look around
'Cause I can't stay inside this lonely room and cry forever
I think I'd really rather join 'em two doors down

Two doors down we're laughing and drinking and having a party
And two doors down they're all aware that I'm around
'Cause here I am no longer crying and feeling sorry
We're having a party just two doors down

I can't believe I'm standing here dry-eyed, all smiles and talkin'
Making conversation with the new love I've found
I ask him if he'd like to be alone and we start walkin'
Down the hall to my place waiting two doors down, yeah

Two doors down they're laughing and drinking and having a party
And two doors down we're not aware that they're around
'Cause here I am feeling everything but sorry
We're having our own party two doors down

Oh oh oh oh, two doors down
Oh oh oh oh, two doors down
Oh oh oh oh, two doors down
Oh oh oh oh, two doors down

Two doors down they're laughing and drinking and having a party
And two doors down we're not aware that they're around
'Cause here we end feeling everything but sorry
We're having our own party two doors down

Two doors down they're laughing and drinking and having a party
And two doors down we're not aware that they're around
Here we end feeling everything but sorry
We're having our own party two doors down
