                                 (Please don't take him even though you can) 

         Am          C                    G               Am
1. Your beauty is be-yond compare with flaming locks of auburn hair
            G             Em                Am
      with ivory skin and eyes of emerald green.
          Am               C                      G                  Am
    Your smile is like a breathe of spring your voice is soft like summer rain
     G              Em             Am
    And I can not compete with Jolene.
    Am                  C                 G                   Am
    He talks about you in his sleep and there's nothing I can do to keep
           G             Em               Am
    from crying when he calls your name Jolene
    Am                   C           G                Am
   Now I can easily understand  how you could easily take my man 
            G                  Em           Am
   But you don't know what he means to me Jolene           go to chorus,

2.  You can have your choice of men but I could never love again 
       G            Em            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          Em             Am
     and whatever you decide to do Jolene
