Little Jolena, a dark haired darlin'
Skin of ivory, angel eyes
 Every man in Louisiana wanted her sweet love
But she swore on the Bible, she was all mine

Hey little did I know, she was wild as the bayou  Catch a man on a cane pole, hang his heart on the line
I thought I could hold her, me oh my oh
 Little did I know, she had bigger fish to fry

My brother tried to warn me, Mama she scorned me
My friends all told me, I was under her spell 
But I wouldn't listen, I was lovesick  Without Jolena life would be a living hell

Hey little did I know, she was wild as the bayou  Catch a man on a cane pole, hang his heart on the line
I thought I could hold her, me oh my oh
 Little did I know, she had bigger fish to fry

At the church in the Wildwood standin' at the alter  Little Jolena never showed
I heard later on she left with a dandy 
And headed down to Mexico 

Hey little did I know, she was wild as the bayou  Catch a man on a cane pole, hang his heart on the line
I thought I could hold her, me oh my oh
 Little did I know, she had bigger fish to fry
Hey little did I know, she had bigger fish to fry
