JOLENE
BY:DOLLY PARTON

Very simple and easy progression of 
Em, G, D, Em, D, Em

Capo on 4th fret
Standard tuning

[Intro]
Em, G, D, Em

[Chorus]
Em       G       D       Em
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene 
   D                                   Em
I’m begging of you please don't take my man 
Em       G       D       Em
Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene 
   D                                   Em
Please don't take him just because you can 

[Verse]
 Em             G
Your beauty is beyond compare 
      D                Em
With flaming locks of auburn hair 
 D                             Em
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green 
 Em             G
Your smile is like a breath of spring 
      D                Em
Your voice is soft like summer rain 
 D                             Em
And I cannot compete with you, Jolene 
Em             G
He talks about you in his sleep 
      D                  Em
There's nothing I can do to keep 
       D                            Em
From crying when he calls your name, Jolene 
Em                     G
And I can easily understand 
      D                    Em
How you could easily take my man 
       D                                Em
But you don't know what he means to me, Jolene 

[Chorus]
 Em      G       D       Em
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene 
   D                                  Em
I’m begging of you please don't take my man 
Em       G       D       Em
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene 
   D                                Em
Please don't take him just because you can 

[Verse]
Em                          G
You could have your choice of men 
D                    Em
But I could never love again 
D                          Em
He’s the only one for me, Jolene 

Em                       G
I had to have this talk with you 
D                    Em
My happiness depends on you 
D                               Em
And whatever you decide to do, Jolene 

[Chorus]
Em      G       D       Em
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene 
   D                                   Em
I’m begging of you please don't take my man 
Em           G           D          Em
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene 
   D                            Em
Please don't take him just because you can 
D         Em
Jolene, Jolene

The chords are Am, C & G with capo on 4th, like I posted in version 6. Not sure what version you are listening to! :)

This version is what my band used to accommodate my alto vocal range so I decided to post it.
