Kelly Clarkson fulfills a fans request in Albuquerque, NM, when she performs Dolly Parton's "Jolene". The 1974 No. 1 hit was requested by audience member Robert Nunez, who just so happened to be standing at the edge of the stage as Kelly performed. Her performance of the song is heart-wrenching and full of emotion, similar to the style that Dolly performed the famous song. Cast in a red light and with only a pianist accompanying her, Kelly's emotional performance will give you chills.

The song "Jolene" has been covered by many well known artists, both country and pop, but the history behind the song has always intrigued it's fans. Well, Dolly has shared the story behind the song, and it's not as dark or scandalous as you might have imagined. It started as a private joke between herself and her husband Carl, when a red-haired bank teller near their home had a terrible crush on her husband. Dolly says, "It was kinda like a running joke between us...So it's really an innocent song all around but sounds like a dreadful one." 

Enjoy Kelly's emotional video.

LYRICS BELOW

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him just because you can

Your beauty is beyond compare
With flaming locks of auburn hair
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green

Your smile is like a breath of spring
Your voice is soft like summer rain
And I cannot compete with you, Jolene

He talks about you in his sleep
There's nothing I can do to keep
From crying when he calls your name, Jolene

And I can easily understand
How you could easily take my man
But you don't know what he means to me, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him just because you can

You could have your choice of men
But I could never love again
He's the only one for me, Jolene

I had to have this talk with you
My happiness depends on you
And whatever you decide to do, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him even though you can

Jolene, Jolene
