"Jolene" as written by and Ray Lamontagne....
Cocaine flame in my bloodstream
Sold my coat when I hit Spokane

Bought myself a hard pack of cigarettes
In the early morning rain
Lately my hands they don't feel like mine
My eyes been stung with dust and blind
Held you in my arms one time
Lost you just the same

Jolene
Well, I'm not about to go straight
It's too late
And I found myself face down in the ditch
Booze in my hair, blood on my lips
A picture of you holding a picture of me
In the pocket of my blue jeans
Still don't know what love means
Still don't know what love means

Jolene
La la la lala lala
Jolene
La la la lala lala
Lala la

It's been so long since I've seen your face
Or felt a part of this human race
I've been living out of this here suitcase
For way too long
Man needs something he can hold onto
Nine pound hammer or a woman like you
Either one of them things will do

Jolene
Well, I'm not about to go straight,
It's too late
And I found myself face down in the ditch
Booze in my hair, blood on my lips
A picture of you holding a picture of me
In the pocket of my blue jeans
Still don't know what love means
Still don't know what love means

Jolene
La la la lala lala
Jolene
La la la lala lala
Lala la

Cocaine flame in my bloodstream
Sold my coat when I hit Spokane

    General Commenti think this song is about how this guy who dated a good woman & knew she was a good woman. he knew she could love him more than anyone but he didn't want to fully dedicate himself to her. so in the part where he says i aint about to go straight he means they could have a great life together but he may have been too let down in the past to let someone else in.
