(Lou Dalgleish)

I took another woman’s man
But he was looking for the taking
She said
“Now, please don’t take him just because you can”
“Or I will be forsaken”

She said
“The children need him home”
“Please don’t tell him that we’ve spoken”
“I know he’ll follow you, no matter where you roam”
“But this family will be broken”

And then she said
“Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I’m begging of you
Please, please, please”

But I’m ashamed to say, I didn’t walk away
And I’m still with him today

I took another woman’s hand
And so the guilt is on my shoulder
And though betrayal was the last thing I had planned
Together we’ve grown older

Because I said
“Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I’m begging of you
Please, please, please”

But I’m so glad that say, she didn’t walk away
And she’s still with me today

We stand guilty as charged
For a life time sentence together
And everyone can see, that the innocent go free
But that’s not you and me

I wont lay down the law
I wont sit on my hands
I won’t go crawling back
The jury understands

We stand guilty as charged
For a life time sentence together
And everyone can see
That the innocent go free
But that’s not you and me

‘Cause everyone can see, that the innocent go free
But that’s not you and me
