                        JOLENE - by Dolly Parton

Chorus:   Cm      Eb      Cm      Eb
       Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene,
            Eb                                 Cm
       I'm begging of you please don't take my man.
          Cm      Eb      Cm      Eb
       Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene,
          Eb                                   Cm
       Please don't take him just because you can.

The verse is just:  Cm,Eb,Bb,Cm,Bb,Bb,Am,Am,Am,Am for a bar each.

It's easier to play with a capo at the 3rd fret. If you do this, the chords translate as below:

      Cm -> Am
      Eb -> C
      Bb -> G
[ Tab from: ]
I find this easier to play, and a better sound.

Song structure:

  Chorus, Verses 1234, Chorus, Verses 56, Chorus (x4)

(This is the way The Sisters of Mercy play it anyway.)

Verse 1

Your beauty is beyond compare,
With flaming locks of golden hair,
With iv'ry skin and eyes of emerald green.

Verse 2

Your smile is like a breath of spring,
Your voice is soft like summer rain,
And I cannot compete with you,

Verse 3

He talks about you in his sleep,
There's nothing I can do to keep,
>From crying when he calls your name,

Verse 4

And I can easily understand,
How you could easily take my man,
But you don't know what he means to me,

Verse 5

Well you can have your choice of men,
But I can never love again,
He's the only one for me,

Verse 6

I have to have this talk with you,
My happiness depends on you,
Whatever you decide to do,
