A response from Jolene to the song by Dolly Parton..hanging on to a wandering man
Letter from Jolene

You say don't take him
But he's leaving either way
His eyes are always searching
For a new life..
A brighter day

The kisses are temporary
Planted only for the fading spring
Come winter his love runs out
Destruction is all that he will bring

Get out while you can
His wandering eyes will wander again
When I'm gone, don't feel safe then
His empty words fly thoughtless from his pen

He's just mezmerized by the mystery
No need to compare
Your heart is far too innocent
For his burdens to bear

You say don't take him
But he's leaving either way
His eyes are always searching
For a new life..
A brighter day

Find the one
Who one thing about you,
Wouldn't change
Worth far more
Than a selfish whim
He values every exchange

You say don't take him
But he's leaving either way
His eyes are always searching
For a new life..
A brighter day
