White Limozeen is a Dolly Parton album, released in May 1989, that returned the singer to the country music fold, after the critical and commercial failure of 1987's Rainbow. It was her 30th studio album. The album was produced by Ricky Skaggs, and featured a duet with Mac Davis along with a cover version of Don Francisco's Christian classic, "He's Alive" and a cover of the REO Speedwagon hit "Time For Me To Fly." For Parton's efforts, she was rewarded with two country #1 singles: "Why'd Ya' Come in Here, Lookin' Like That?" and "Yellow Roses". The album peaked at #3 on the U.S. country albums chart and won Parton back much of the critical praise she had lost with Rainbow.

In 2009, Sony BMG reissued White Limozeen in a triple-feature CD set with Eagle When She Flies and Slow Dancing With The Moon.

In anticipation of the album, in April 1989 the lead single, "Why'd You Come in Here Lookin' Like That" was released. It was a #1 Country single, and was given a music video.

After the album showed to be doing well, in July 1989 the second single, "Yellow Roses" was released, also becoming a #1 Country single.

October 1989 saw the third single, "He's Alive" being released. An accompanying video, consisting of footage of Parton's performance of the song on the CMA Awards show, earlier in the month. [1] as the music video. It was a cover of Don Francisco's song of the same name. The single peaked at # 39.

In February 1990 she released the fourth single, "Time For Me to Fly", a cover of REO Speedwagon's song of the same name. Like its immediate predacessor, the single also peaked at #39.

In May 1990 the fifth single, the title track, was released, also without promotion as by this point she was recording a holiday album, Home for Christmas. It reached #29 on the country singles charts.

A sixth single, "Take Me Back to the Country", was released that same year, but is rarely known, and it was the final bit of promotion for this album. The single did not chart.
