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 emerald 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, Jolene
