lyrics

Paychecks and cigarettes govern the kitchenette
she works the evenings, believing what her teachers always said:
"Jolene is very keen, that girl will live the dream--
Go to college, get away." But her boyfriend, in the prison, he’ll say:

Wait for me, one more day, and when I’m free,
Baby we will run away

John Paul sold Adderall and cocaine by the shopping mall
he made him a few bucks, now he’s locked up, serving time until next fall
Plans made in seventh grade, he left them all delayed
but she loves him, even so; so he begs her, Oh my darling don’t go

Wait for me, one more day, and when I’m free
Baby we will run away.
Baby we will run away.

Hey Jolene, you’re the one I want
To come with me when I leave this haunt
Baby sink or swim, we’ll be on our own
Cuz we’re leaving Ohio

I’m gonna make parole and, you’re gonna leave that hole, and
We’re gonna find a place where, nobody knows our faces
And I’ll find a job that pays and, you’ll study every day, and
Baby we got to go, they’ll never know, we’re leaving Ohio

Oh-oh-oh…
Baby we’re leaving Ohio - oh oh
Baby we’re leaving

Hey Jolene, you’re the one I want
To come with me when I leave this haunt
Baby sink or swim, we’ll be on our own
Cuz we’re leaving Ohio
