I slip out when my love is fast asleep
She's not my lover
She's sharing a floor with me
And we talked about her grandmother

You touch my leg
On that slow moving train
You shake like a leaf
In that cool autumn breeze

I walk in and Jolene is half undressed
She's just chewing her gum and winking at me
I'll fight her wars
And she'll smite my enemies

You bitch like a child
A spoiled only child
You smoke cigarettes
Drink wine from a flask

You whisper I'm tired
Of living this life
But I'm feeling insane
Lying here in one place

    General CommentI'm curious who Jolene is, being that they have the other song titled "Jolene, We Almost Never Met"
    The lyrics to this song are so simple and straightforward, but that's why I like them. The similies are simple...shaking life a leaf in that cool autum breeze...but they get the job done.
    I love this band.
