Liner Notes: 

Even with my awful timing, James was able to add music to allow me to create my own vocal version of this song. THANKS James - I know it had to be a difficult feat.

JMK -I was interested in preserving Deanna's passionate vocals as best I could. I think we were able to pull it off.

Lyrics: 

Is she my Jolene
Will she take you
Away from me

Is she my Jolene
Will she make you
Forget about we

I won’t hold her to blame
I’d beg her not to take you away
If I just knew her real name

Is she my Jolene
Is it her lips
You’re kissing now

Is she my Jolene
Are you with her
Breaking our vow

I won’t hold her to blame
I’d beg her not to take you away
If I just knew her real name

Tell her I love you
Tell her you’re mine
Tell her I need you
Tell her you’ll stay
With me for all time

Is she my Jolene
Will she take you
Away from me

Is she my Jolene
Will she make you
Forget about we

I won’t hold her to blame
I’d beg her not to take you away
If I just knew her real name

i like the way you put a dirgelike element into this midtempo country tune. it takes it out of that smiley smile realm of head bobbing tragedy, and spreading the miasma of seperation anxiety over the repeating question.

Nice to hear your voice! Honest and expressive. You had a big challenge, referencing an iconic country classic, but you made it your own --not a derivative Dolly wannabe. I like the lyrics short and direct quality, right to the point.
