Jolene – Happy Halloween

Scan 151

Eldritch Jolene

 

Chorus

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene;

I’m begging on you please don’t take my man.

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene;

Please don’t take him just because you can.

 

Verse 1

Her beauty is beyond compare with flaming locks of auburn hair,

With ivory skin and eye of emerald green

The closer that you get to her the more the edges seem to blur,

Into something that cannot be called Jolene.

For years our town’s been terrorised, by the beast who takes disguise

Inside the shell that we all call Jolene.

Our sleep disturbed by quaking breath, eyes closed against the threat of death;

She waits for us in darkest depths Jolene.

 

Chorus

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene;

I’m begging on you please don’t take my man.

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene;

Please don’t take him just because you can.

 

Verse 2

He screams about her in his sleep and when he wakes does naught but weep,

In terror at the one they call Jolene.

Her claws are sharp, her mouth agape, they’ll rend your flesh there’s no escape,

From the judgement of the one they call Jolene.

Blackening the summer skies, with burning wings and countless eyes,

We tremble at the thought of that Jolene.

Bliss withered from this awful truth, gone is the ignorance of youth,

The unrelenting mark of that Jolene.

 

Chorus

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene;

I’m begging on you please don’t take my man.

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene;

Please don’t take him just because you can.

 

Verse 3

The foolish who came to defend, their broken minds will never mend,

They fell at the mere site of her Jolene.

They cowered there beneath her gaze, that sets the earth and sky ablaze.

Have mercy at the end of days Jolene!

Before her wrath no foe could stand, their corpses piled upon the sand.

The blood of gods are on her hands, Jolene.

 

Chorus

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene;

I’m begging you please don’t disturb her sleep.

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene;

We’re safe while she still slumbers in the deep.
