"9 to 5 and Odd Jobs" was an album released by Dolly Parton in December 1980. A concept album about working, the album was centered around Parton's hit "9 to 5", which served as the theme song to the film of the same name (costarring Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin), and topped both the U.S. country and pop charts. The album's two additional singles -- a cover of Mike Settle's "But You Know I Love You" and a reading of "House of the Rising Sun" -- provided further country hits, with "But You Know I Love You" also reaching #1.

The understated pop-country arrangement of most of the songs was seen as a welcome return to form for Parton by critics, after the overly-polished pop sound of Parton's previous albums. In addition five Parton compositions, the album contained a number of folk and country classics, including work by Woody Guthrie, Mel Tillis and Merle Travis.

The album was produced by Mike Post (with the exception of "9 to 5", which was produced by Parton's bandleader Gregg Perry.
