Video Intro:

Jolene, By Dolly Parton (Bardcore/Medieval Style)

Good morrow! I have descended from my cloister once more with another offering for the ravenous rabble. 

Silliness aside, I want to thank you all again for helping to make such a wholesome part of the internet. I live for your hilarious comments and witty imaginings, and only wish I had more time to devote to this. I'm back to work, so I can't aspire to weekly videos, but I do endeavour to continue making these. 

The art is a composite/partial paint over of three different sources, including: MS Bodley 264, and Lausanne, Bibliothèque Cantonale et Universitaire U 964 - Biblia Porta fol. 178r, and one other that I've had no luck tracking down.



Lyrics:

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

I beg of thee, pray take not my lord

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

I fear, from thee, ‘twould take naught but a word

Thy beauty is beyond compare

With flaming locks of auburn hair

With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green

Thy smile is like a breath of Spring

Thy voice is soft like Summer rain

And I cannot compete with thee

Jolene


He talketh of thee in his sleep

And alas, I cannot keep

From weeping when I hear thy name

Jolene

Although it is so plain to see

How little he doth mean to thee 

My love for him is boundless as the sea


Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

I beg of thee, oh please take not my lord

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

I fear, from you, ‘twould take naught but a word

Thou couldst have thy choice of men

But I could never love again

He is the only one for me

Jolene


I would risk both life and limb

To spend my only days with him

My happiness is at thy whim, 

Jolene


Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

I beg of thee, pray take not my lord

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

I fear, from thee, ‘twould take naught but a word
