(parton)Jolene, jolene, jolene, joleneI’m begging of youPlease don’t take my manJolene, jolene, jolene, jolenePlease don’t take himJust because you canYour beauty is beyond compareWith flaming locks of auburn hairWith ivory skin and eyes of amber greenYour smile is like a breath of springYour voice is soft like summer rainAnd I can not compete with you, joleneHe talks about you in his sleepAnd there’s nothing I can do to keepFrom crying when he calls your name, joleneAnd I can easy understand how you can easy take my manBut you don’t know what he means to me, joleneJolene, jolene, jolene, joleneI’m begging of youPlease don’t take my manJolene, jolene, jolene, jolenePlease don’t take himJust because you canNow, you could have your choice of menBut I could never love againHe’s the only one for me, joleneI had to have this talk with youMy happiness depends on youAnd whatever you decide to do, joleneJolene, jolene, jolene, joleneI’m begging of you please don’t take my manJolene, jolene, jolene, jolenePlease don’t take him even though you canJolene
