 Am       C       G       Am
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
     G                                   Am
I`m begging of you please dont`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 voice is soft like summer rain
       G         Em             Am
And i cannot compete with you, Jolene

    Am             C
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
    Am            C
And 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       G       Am
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
you could have your choice of men
    G              Am
But i could never love again
    G           Em          Am
He`s the only one for me, Jolene
   Am               C
I had to have this talk with you 
   G            Am
My happines depends on you
   G            Em           Am
Whatever you decide to do, Jolene

 
Jolene, Jolene ,Jolene, Jolene
I`m begging of you please don`t take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don`t take him even though you can

  1. Pattern is DD-UU-DU
    Chords G , C , Em , and Am sound good with a capo on the fourth fret

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
