sung by Dolly Parton / The Sisters of Mercy

Jolene Jolene Jolene Jolene
I'm begging you please don't take my man
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 as summer rain
And I cannot compete with you Jolene

He talks about you in his sleep
There's nothing I can do to keep
From crying when he calls your name Jolene
And I can easily understand
How you can easily take my man
But you don't know what he means to me Jolene


Well you could have your choice of man
But I could never love again
He's the only man for me Jolene
I have to have this talk with you
My happiness depends on you
Whatever you decide to do
