[Verse 1]
D
Paychecks and cigarettes govern the kitchenette
she works the evenings, 
G                  A
believing what her teachers always said:
D
"Jolene is very keen, that girl will live the dream--
G                                 A
Go to college, get away." But her boyfriend, in the prison, he'll say:


[chorus]
Bm           A                 G
Wait for me, one more day, and when I'm free,
G                D                  
Baby we will run away

[Verse 2]
D
John Paul sold Adderall and cocaine by the shopping mall

he made him a few bucks, 
G                           A
now he's locked up, serving time until next fall
D
Plans made in seventh grade, he left them all delayed
G                                 A
but she loves him, even so; so he begs her, Oh my darling don't go

[chorus]
Bm           A                 G
Wait for me, one more day, and when I'm free
G                D       G
Baby we will run awaaaaaay.
G                D       G
Baby we will run awaaaaaay.

[bridge]
Bm    A                D   A Bm
Hey Jolene, you're the one I want
   Bm        A         D     A    G
To come with me when I leave this haunt
      Bm       A            D  A   G
Baby sink or swim, we'll be on our own
          Bm      A  D
Cuz we're leaving Ohio

D
I'm gonna make parole and, you're gonna leave that hole, and
G
We're gonna find a place where, nobody knows our faces
D
And I'll find a job that pays and, you'll study every day, and
G
Baby we got to go, they'll never know, we're leaving Ohio

D     G
Oh-oh-oh…
G                     D
Baby we're leaving Ohio - oh oh
G          A
Baby we're leaving


[outro]
Bm    A                D   A Bm
Hey Jolene, you're the one I want
   Bm        A         D     A    G
To come with me when I leave this haunt
      Bm       A            D  A   G
Baby sink or swim, we'll be on our own
          Bm      A  D
Cuz we're leaving Ohio
