Jolene
by Ray LaMontagne

Cocaine flame in my bloodstream
Sold my coat when I hit Spokane
Bought myself a hard pack of cigarettes
In the early morning rain
Lately, my hands they don't feel like mine
My eyes been stung with dust, I'm blind
Held you in my arms one time
Lost you just the same
Jolene

I ain't about to go straight
It's too late
I found myself face-down in a ditch
Booze on my hair, blood on my lips
A picture of you, holding a picture of me
In the pocket of my blue jeans
Still don't know what love means
Still don't know what love means

Jolene
Ah, la, la, la, la, la
Jolene

Been so long since I seen your face
Or felt a part of this human race
I've been living out of this here suitcase for way too long
A man needs something he can hold onto
Nine-pound hammer or a woman like you
Either one of them things will do
Jolene

I ain't about to go straight
It's too late
I found myself face down in a ditch
Booze in my hair, blood on my lips
A picture of you, holding a picture of me
In the pocket of my blue jeans
Still don't know what love means
Still don't know what love means

Jolene
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
Jolene
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
Jolene

Where is Ray now?? The last we heard was the Black Keys dude producing his album.....
I wish he would release stuff from at home, just the acoustic & voice.

Danielle Izbicki

My step father committed suicide on January 1st 2014. He has a playlist on his Spotify that was labeled "chill music" and consisted of very easy listening to music like this song. That playlist played for months and months very faintly constantly on our home surround sound. It had about 30 songs that were in this genre of music. Very soulful, so nostalgic. Hits very close to home for me. RIP Eric Virgil Henderson. This song will forever make me think of you and also forever give me goosebumps.

Jay HaZe
