JOLENE

 

[Am-C-G-Am ]

[ G-Em-Am-Am]

 

Jo- [Am] lene, Jo- [C] lene

Jo- [G] lene, Jo- [Am] lene
I'm [G] begging of you

[Em] please don't take my

[Am] man

 

Jolene, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene
please don't take him

just because you

can
 

your beauty is beyond compare
with flaming locks of auburn hair
with ivory skin and

eyes of emerald

green
 

your smile is like a breath of spring
your voice is soft like summer rain
and I cannot com-

pete with you Jo-

lene
 

he talks about you in his sleep
and there's nothing I can do to keep from
crying when he

calls your name Jo-

lene
 

and I can easily understand
how you could easily take my man
but you don't know what he

means to me Jo-

lene
 

Jolene, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you

please don't take my

man
 

Jolene, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene
please don't take him

just because you

can
 

you could have your choice of men
but I could never love again
he's the only

one for me Jo-
lene

 

I had to have this talk with you
my happiness depends on you
and whatever you de-

cide to do Jo-
lene

 

Jolene, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you

please don't take my

man
 

Jolene, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene
please don't take him

just because you

can
