O' Jolene

The Man's Reaction to Her Beauty Beyond Compare

Inspired by Dolly Parton's soft summer rain over Chip Young's thumb-picked guitar.

Jolene, Jolene

Where were you all my life?

This can't be right,

I'm here with my wife.

You see,

She's going to be a singer one day

I know she has it in her

But I can't deny


Your eternal smile

Emerald green eyes

In French they say jolie.

You stole my love on the spot,

The room got so hot,

Southern summer.

Grow old together and what not.

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

I'm begging of you please come take my hand

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

You'll be my woman soon, can't wait to be your man.

Expect the biggest ring,

Pearl necklaces,

And fancy trips around the world.

Girl, nothing will stop us,

Trust me.

No more public bus,

Even the moon won't be enough.

Caviar and room service,

You are my one true star

O' this I promise.

Let's fly far away from here

Jolene, honey

You'll never have to worry about a thing

When we'll be swimming in money

Unfortunately, I must walk away

Now I don't know what to say

But when I fall asleep at the end of the day

You'll be in my dreams, 


Red fire hair,

I swear

Your beauty way beyond compare.

Nobody strikes me like you do,

Sweet fantasy of just us two.
