Jolene

Lyrics by Dolly Parton

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene,

I’m beggin’ of you let me be your man.

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene,

Please don’t leave me 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 am so in love with you, Jolene.

 

But you talk about him in your sleep.

It’s all that I can do to keep

From cryin’ when you call his name, Jolene.

Though I can easily understand

You take the breath of every man;

But he can’t know what you mean to me, Jolene

 

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

I’m beggin’ of you let me be your man.

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

Don’t let him take you just because he can.

 

Now you could have your choice of men.

I could never love again.

You’re the only one for me, Jolene.

I had to have this talk with you.

My happiness depends on you,

And whatever you decide you’ll do, Jolene

 

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene,

I’m beggin’ of you let me be your man.

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

Please leave me just because you can.
