Dolly Parton - Jolene
Tekst en muziek: Dolly Parton
(1973)






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



Your beauty is beyond compare
With flaming locks of auburn hair
With ivory skin and eyes of em’rald green
Your smile is like a breath of spring
Your voice is soft like summer rain
And I cannot compete with you, Jolene



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



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, Jolene
I had to have this talk with you
My happiness depends on you
And whatever you decide to do, Jolene



Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I’m begging of you, please, don’t take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please, don’t take him, even though you can



Jolene
