Covering Dolly Parton's "Jolene" has become a staple for many artists, in all different genres. 

Country singers, folk singers, pop singers and even a punk rock band have covered this 1973 classic. Pop-singer Ellie Goulding took a stab at the famed song in 2009, and put her own unique spin to it.

Her raspy voice and breathy tone make her sound a little bit folk-y, but her version is unlike any other. The English-born singer rose to fame in 2010 after her album Lights was released and has opened for John Mayer and U2, and she performed at the wedding reception of Prince William and Kate Middleton!

She has taken the music world by storm and has proved that she can sing just about anything, including "Jolene".

Take a listen to her version of "Jolene" below! 

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
