 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

, if you ever read this, can you fix the scroll? I don’t know if it’s meant to be this way, but it stops before it gets to the end of the song. It’ll stop one ling before the end. And I know we can just scroll down, but it’s kinda annoying. It’s possible it’s just me, but I’ve owned two computers and it’s the same thing. If anyone else reads this, please let me know if you’re having the same problem so Uketabs can see this comment. Please fix this. I’m tired of seeing this on every song made by this company. Thank you.

Lisa

Put ur capo on 4th fret if you want to be in the same key as the original

Rossana

I use Island Strum DD UU DU

Jace

If you’re a tenor or a baritone, transpose it down to -7 and you got a pretty good range. chords are Am C Dm and F.

Anabel

Bernadette advises Island Strum DD UU DU and capo on 3rd to make it easy

anon

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

Aleda Davies

What is the strum pattern??

I know that you may think that you have free speech and all that, but the first amendment doesn’t protect as much as you think it does. The plagiarism of copyrighted material is in fact one of the few things that is NOT protected under the first amendment. So please respect the copyright laws!

bitch what

Lily Bryson

lol

Nico Nico No

What is that supposed to mean, it’s literally a strum pattern??

Capulet

Publishing a strumming pattern AND the chords is usually considered copyright infringement. You’re not just interpreting the song but providing a direct copy.

Sam

It’s called doing a cover dumbass

Phaedrica

Dolly loves us, though! Not exactly gonna steal her show. Should I call her? I know she cried all night when she refused Elvis taking partial rights to “I will Always Love You” had she allowed him to sing it,
but somehow, I think she’d be down with us all honouring “Jolene” on our ukes, Mate!
