I'm singing songs about the ocean
And every night's a lullaby
To the coastal breeze and the salty seas
I've never felt so far from home

And as we pass on through these mountains
I keep my back to western skies
Where the sun it seems to always sleep
And where I wish I was going

She's the sea, she's the hardest thing to leave
I wish that she would notice
But the sea will never notice
Jolene, Jolene
That's what she sang to me
But it ain't nothing but her favorite country song

So this old can becomes a vessel,
A beast of burden, and a home
But those eastern shores are never yours
Where I wish I was going

She's the sea, she's the hardest thing to leave
I wish that she would notice
But the sea will never notice
Jolene, Jolene
That's what she sang to me
But it ain't nothing but her favorite country song

Jolene
Jolene
Jolene
Jolene
But it ain't nothing
It ain't nothing
