[Intro]

         G   C/G   C/G G
   ||:  /// ///// /// ///// :||  2x


[Verse]

G       C           G
Cocaine flame in my bloodstream
G                   C
Sold my coat when I hit Spokane
C               C
Bought myself a hard pack of cigarettes
       C                G  C/G
in the early morning rain

G           C/G              G
  Lately my hands they don't feel like mine
G            G7         C
My eyes been stung with dust and blind
C              C
Held you in my arms one time
C                 G     G  D/F#
Lost you just the same


[Chorus]

Em    G    C          G    D/F#
   Jolene... I ain't about to go
Em    G             C         C
  strai-ght... It's too late


[Verse]

  G            C/G       G
I found myself face down in a ditch
D                    D
Booze in my hair and blood on my lips
  C                        C
A picture of you holding a picture of me
       C                 G       G  D/F#
In the pocket of my blue jeans

Em              G         C          C
  I still don't know what love means
Em          G         C     G/B    Am   G/B   C  G/B  Am
Still don't know what love means
  G             C     G/B   Am
Jolene... La la la la la la la
  G      C/G   C/G   G      G   C/G   C/G   G
Jolene...

G
Been so long since I seen your face
   G      G7           C
Or felt a part of this human race
          C                  C
I've been living out of this here suitcase
    C       G
for way too long

G                            G
A man needs something he can hold onto
  G          G7          C/G
A nine pound hammer or a woman like you
C                  C              C  G    G D/F#
Either one of them things will do


[Chorus]

Em    G    C          G    D/F#
   Jolene... I ain't about to go
Em    G             C        C
  strai-ght... It's too late


[Verse]

  G            C/G       G
I found myself face down in a ditch
D                    D
Booze in my hair and blood on my lips
  C                        C
A picture of you holding a picture of me
       C                 G       G  D/F#
In the pocket of my blue jeans

Em              G         C         C
  I still don't know what love means
Em          G         C     G/B    Am   G/B   C  G/B  Am
Still don't know what love means


[Outro]

  G             C     G/B   Am
Jolene... La la la la la la la
  G             C     G/B   Am
Jolene... La la la la na na na
  G      C/G   C/G   G      G   C/G   C/G   G
Jolene...

Good tab. I would replace just about all C's with C/G.

Your suggestion for C/G is not correct if it is meant to be a C/G. What you've put is a Gmaj. C/G means a Cmaj with a G in the bass. Not sure what sounds right though.

This is how I play C/G:
