Red, black and the White Stripes.

Your beauty is beyond compare
With flaming locks of auburn hair
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green
Your smile is like a breath of spring
Your voice is soft like summer rain
And I cannot compete with you, Jolene

He talks about you in his sleep
There’s nothing I can do to keep
From crying when he calls your name, Jolene

And I can easily understand
How you could easily take my man
But you don’t know what he means to me, Jolene

You could have your choice of men
But I could never love again
He’s the only one for me, Jolene

I had to have this talk with you
My happiness depends on you
And whatever you decide to do, Jolene

I’m begging of you please don’t take my man
Please don’t take him even though you can

I’m not a country kind of girl but the lyrics of this song is so beautiful, especially the first verse. And I especially love it when one of the most amazing bands on earth is covering it. Jack White is…sigh, no words for that man. I’ve practically been snorting Stripes’ songs these past couple of days, brings back memories. Or actually, it brings back old thoughts. Bittersweet.
