Cocaine flame in my bloodstream
Sold my coat when I hit Spokane
Bought myself a hard pack of cigarettes in the early morning rain
Lately my hands they don't feel like mine
My eyes been stung with dust, I'm blind
Held you in my arms one time
Lost you just the same
Jolene
I ain't about to go straight
It's too late
I found myself face down in the ditch
Booze on my hair
Blood on my lips
A picture of you, holding a picture of me
In the pocket of my blue jeans
Still don't know what love means
Still don't know what love means
Jolene
Ah, La, La, La, La, La
Jolene
Been so long since I seen your face
Or felt a part of this human race
I've been living out of this here suitcase for way too long
A man needs something he can hold onto
A nine pound hammer or a woman like you
Either one of them things will do
Jolene
I ain't about to go straight
It's too late
I found myself face down in the ditch
Booze in my hair
Blood on my lips
A picture of you, holding a picture of me
In the pocket of my blue jeans
Still don't know what love means
Still don't know what love means
Jolene
La, La, La, La, La, La, La
Jolene
La, La, La, La, La, La, La
Jolene

    I will always the boy who gave me this song. No matter how far he is from me. He will always be part of the happiest days of my life... And most importante he made me feel home no matter where i was standing.

    This song is about me. He moved to Spokane and left me a voice mail that he was going and he left. Still love him to this day! I would still love him to this day, he just needs to call. Get out of the ditch, I loved you then and love you now. Call me please! Sleepless in Wisconsin missing you. We could be Vegas bound before too long, need you like this song. Call me now, it's been too long, way too long.
