I'm not exactly sure what key this song is in.
So I guessed. 
   E             A               E
1. Little Jolena My dark haired darlin' 
               B7    E
Skin of ivory Angel eyes
                          A           E
All the boys in Louisana Wanted her sweet love
                           B7                E
But she swore on the Bible She was mine, all mine

(Chorus)
 E             B      A                  E
Hey little did I know She was wild as a bayou
                  B         A                     E
Catch a man on a cane pole Hang his heart on the line
                   B       A       E  A
I thought I could hold her Me, oh, my oh, 
              E        B                 E
Little did I know She had bigger fish to fry


2. My brother tried to warn me Momma she scorned me
My friends all told me I was under her spell
But I wouldn't listen I was love sick
Without Jolena Life would be living hell

(Repeat Chorus)
(Bridge)
E       F#            
At the church in the wildwood Standin' at the altar
 B                            F#
Little Jolena never showed I heard later on she left with a dandy
     D              E
And headed down to Mexico

(Repeat Chorus)
