Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene 
     G               Am             
I'm begging of you, please don't take my man 
   Am    C     G     Am  
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene  
  G                   Em               Am
Please don't take him just because you can 
      Am         C  
Your beauty is beyond compare,  
       G              Am  
With flaming locks of auburn hair,  
      G            Em               Am  
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green 
      Am              C  
Your smile is like a breath of spring,  
      G                Am  
Your skin is soft like summer rain,  
   G            Em               Am  
And I cannot compete with you, Jolene 
chorus: (Miley version)
  Am       C       G      Am  
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene 
     G            Am                         
I'm begging you, please don't take my man 
   Am     C     G     Am  
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene  
  G                  Em              Am
Please don't take him even though you can 
Am          C  
I can easily understand  
     G              Am  
How you could easily take my man  
     G                    Em              Am
But you don't know what he means to me, Jolene    

        Am              C  
When he talks about you in his sleep,  
        G            Am  
There's nothing I can do to keep  
     G               Em                 Am
From crying, when he calls your name, Jolene
chorus (Dolly version)
  Am               C  
I had to have this talk with you,  
   G           Am  
My happiness depends on you,  
        G          Em            Am  
And whatever you decide to do, Jolene

Am                  C  
You could have your choice of men,  
   G              Am  
But I could never love again  
    G           Em            Am  
Cuz he's the only one for me, Jolene 
chorus (Miley version)
 Am         G         Am  
Jolene      Joleeeeeeeeeeeeeeennee
