  Dm      F       C       Dm   Dmsus2
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
    C                                    Dm  Dmsus2 Dmsus2 
I'm beggin' of you, please don't take my man
  Dm      F       C       Dm   Dmsus2
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
C                                      Dm  Dmsus2 Dmsus2 
Please don't take him, even though you can


[Verse 1]

     Dm        F                   C                Dm
Your beauty is beyond compare with flaming locks of auburn hair
     C                              Dm    Dmsus2 Dmsus2
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green
     Dm              F                         C                  Dm
Your smile is like a breath of spring and your voice is soft like summer rain
    C                            Dm   Dmsus2 Dmsus2
And I cannot compete with you, Jolene
       Dm              F                         C             Dm
An' he talks about you in his sleep, and there's nothin' I can do to keep
     C                                 Dm   Dmsus2 Dmsus2
From cryin' when he calls your name, Jolene


[Chorus]

  Dm      F       C       Dm
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
    C N.C.                               Dm  Dmsus2 Dmsus2 
I'm beggin' of you, please don't take my man
  Dm      F       C       Dm
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
C N.C.                                 Dm  Dmsus2 Dmsus2 Dmsus2 Dmsus2
Please don't take him, even though you can


[Verse 2]

Well, I can easily understand how you could easily take my man
But you don't know what he means to me, Jolene
Well, you could have your choice of men, but I could never love again
He's the only one for me, Jolene
An' I had to have this talk with you, my happiness depends on you
And whatever you decide to do, Jolene


[Chorus]

  Dm      F       C       Dm
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
    C N.C.                               Dm  Dmsus2 Dmsus2
I'm beggin' of you, please don't take my man
  Dm      F       C       Dm   Dmsus2
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
C N.C.                                 Dm
Please don't take him, even though you can

I think this is the only tab on ultimate guitar that actually has the main riff right.
