How Beyoncé responded to Dolly Parton's call and changed the song's lyrics to “Jolene”

Dolly Parton's wish has come true.

During a 2022 interview with The Daily Show, Parton was asked about the hundreds of cover versions of her 1973 country classic “Jolene” and the one artist who had yet to record the song that Parton was hoping would do so, namely Beyoncé.

“I don't know if she got the message, but wouldn't that be killer? I think she's amazing and beautiful and I love her music. Barton said. “I would just love to hear 'Jolene' performed in a big way, like Whitney does [Houston] I did “I Will Always Love You.” Someone who can take my little songs and make them into big powers. It would be a great day in my life if she sang “Jolene.”

Done and Finished.

Beyoncé includes a version of Parton's hit song in the Renaissance sequel, “Chapter Two: Cowboy CarterThe song was produced by Parton herself.

“Hello, Miss Honey Bee, I'm Dolly Bee. You know that walrus with the pretty hair she's singing about? 'She reminded me of someone I knew back in the day, except she had flaming auburn locks,'” Parton says, referring to Beyoncé's lyrics from “Sorry.” “Bless her heart
Just different color hair but it hurts itself.”

Beyoncé's version of “Jolene” follows. Although it matches the original song melodically, Bey puts her own spin on the lyrics. For example, instead of “I'm begging you, please don't take my man,” Beyoncé sings, “I'm warning you, don't come for my man.”

Barton fully agrees.

“Wow, I'm just Jolene,” Parton wrote in a statement on social media on Friday. “Beyoncé is giving that girl some trouble and she deserves it! Love, Dolly B.

Watch Beyoncé's lyrics in full below:

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

I'm warning you, don't come to my man

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

Don't take a chance because you think you can

You are incomparably beautiful

It requires more than beauty and seductive looks

To come between a family and a happy man

Jolene, I'm a woman too

The games you play are not new

So you don't want any heat with me, Jolene

We have been deeply in love for 20 years

I raised that man, and I raised his children

I know my man better than he knows himself (what)

I can easily understand why you are attracted to my man

But you don't want that smoke, so shoot with someone else (you heard me)

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

I'm warning you woman, find your own man

Jolene, I know I'm a queen, Jolene

I'm still a Louisianian Creole bitch (don't try me)

There are a thousand girls in every room

Acting as desperate as you do

You're a bird, go on and sing your tune, Jolene (what)

I had to have this conversation with you

Because I hate being a fool

Your peace depends on how you move, Jolene

My man and I crossed those valleys

The highs, the lows and everything in between

It rolled like fallen weeds

I sleep well and happy, because you cannot extract our planted seeds

I know my man will stand by my side and breathe my gentle breeze

I crossed those valleys

The highs, the lows and everything in between

Good deeds roll down like fallen weeds

Good and happy, because you can't dig them sown seeds

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

I“I stand by her, and she will stand by me, Jolene.”

I stand by him, and he will stand by me

I stand by her, and she will stand by me

I'll stand by him, and he'll stand by me, Jolene
