"Jolene" as written by and Dolly Parton....
Mama said to Jolene that boy's from out of town
And I forbid you to see him especially when I'm around.
But sneak yes she will
Right outside her front door.

But Mama hears her voice
And screams out to the porch...
Are you talkin' to someone out there, Jolene?
No! I'm just singin'
Are you talkin' to someone out there, Jolene?

It's 10:45 she's at work the next day.
There's no time for a break
But she takes one anyway.
She decides to call her boyfriend

But when she makes the call
Her boss overhears her
And screams through the door...
Are you talkin' to someone out there, Jolene?

No! I'm just singin''
Are you talkin'' to someone out there, Jolene?
Then one day she marries Willie May
And it seems like all her troubles gone away... Today.

Jolene gets a call and receives some bad news.
She sneaks into the kitchen
'Cause her husband will hit the roof.
The kids are in trouble raisin' hell at school.

Then Willie gets suspicious and screams out
What are you doin'!?!
Are you talkin' to someone out there, Jolene?
No! I'm just singin'

Are you talkin' to someone out there, Jolene?

No! I'm just singin' the blues.
I'm just singin' for you.....
Mama said to Jolene
That boys from out of town...
