Intro: | Am | Am | Am | Am |

  Am      C       G       Am
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
    G                                   Am
I'm begging of you, please don't take my man
  Am      C       G       Am
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
G                                     Am
Please don't take him just because you can
 
     Am          C                  G                Am
Your beauty is beyond compare, with flaming locks of auburn hair
     G                             Am
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green
     Am              C                      G                  Am
Your smile is like a breath of spring, your voice is soft like summer rain
    G                         Am
And I cannot compete with you, Jolene
   Am              C                     G             Am
He talks about you in his sleep, there's nothing I can do to keep
     G                              Am
From crying when he calls your name, Jolene
    Am           C              G                Am
And I can easily understand how you could easily take my man
        G                                Am
But you don't know what he means to me, Jolene
 
  Am      C       G       Am
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
    G                                  Am
I'm begging of you, please don't take my man
  Am      C       G       Am
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
G                                    Am
Please don't take him just because you can

Am                  C                 G             Am
You could have your choice of men but I could never love again
G                          Am
He's the only one for me, Jolene
  Am               C                 G           Am
I had to have this talk with you, my happiness depends on you
        G                        Am
And whatever you decide to do, Jolene
 
  Am      C       G       Am
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
    G                                  Am
I'm begging of you, please don't take my man
  Am      C       G       Am
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
G                                   Am
Please don't take him even though you can
