Little Jolena, a dark haired darlin'
Skin of ivory, angel eyes
Every man in Louisiana wanted her sweet love
But she swore on the Bible, she was mine, all mine

Hey, little did I know, she was wild as the bayou
Catch a man on a cane pole, hang his heart on the line
I thought I could hold her, me, oh, my, oh
Little did I know, she had bigger fish to fry

My brother tried to warn me, Mama, she scorned me
My friends all told me, I was under her spell
But I wouldn't listen, I was lovesick
Without Jolena, life would be livin' Hell

Hey, little did I know, she was wild as the bayou
Catch a man on a cane pole, hang his heart on the line
I thought I could hold her, me, oh, my, oh
Little did I know, she had bigger fish to fry

At the church in the Wildwood, standin' at the alter
Little Jolena never showed
I heard later on she left with a dandy
And headed down to Mexico

Hey, little did I know, she was wild as the bayou
Catch a man on a cane pole, hang his heart on the line
I thought I could hold her, well, me, oh, my, oh
Little did I know, she had bigger fish to fry
Hey, little did I know, she had bigger fish to fry
Yeah, surely [Incomprehensible], baby
