Dolly Parton


  Dm      F       C       Dm
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
    C                                   Dm
I'm beggin' of you please don't take my man
          F       C       Dm
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
C                                      Dm
Please don't take him just because you can


Dm             F
Your beauty is beyond compare
     C                Dm
With flaming locks of auburn hair
     C                              Dm
With iv'ry skin and eyes of emerald green

Dm                   F
Your smile is like a breath of spring
     C                  Dm
Your voice is soft like summer rain
    C                          Dm
And I cannot compete with you, Jolene

Dm                 F
He talks about you in his sleep
    C                Dm
And there is nothing I can do
   C                                         Dm
To keep from crying when he calls your name, Jolene

Dm               F            
And I can easily understand
    C                Dm
How you could easily take my man
    C                                   Dm
But you don't know what he means to me, Jolene

The proper Dolly Parton key is C#m, but this is very accurate. Well done indeed.

This isn't the right key for the Dolly version but I'm giving it 5 stars because, as a bloke, I can't sing it in her key, but I can in this - so very well done, mate :)

Incidentally, I add in an Am on lines like this one cos it sounds good:

C Am Dm
I'm beggin' of you please don't take my man
