Manwecaen : One man on the guitar, one girl on the drums ... and such a range of intense, great songs ... I adore the White Stripes

Joseph McDermott : I remember it was a theme in the 90s where if a man had to take a woman's song, he'd have to change the male-love subject to a female, and vice-versa. I'm glad Jack White just had the balls not to care if some 14 year old might think he's gay for singing true to the song.

jerkman2030 : Jesus, I'm scared Jolene might take my man now.... and I'm not gay

Holly Golightly : "I'm in the right place but wrong time? That's how I feel everyday" 👌👌👌

Z MILI : It's like if jack is expressing roughly what Dolly was too gentle to show and was hidden underneath her sweetness

Chris van Adrichem : This is the beauty of jack if you ask me. No perfection. Raw and emotion. And i prefer that in every way. Thank god for Jack

thewoodsystyle : My daughter is named Jolene and she head bangs to this version. She's 4. Rock on sweetheart

Ivailo Velev : Getting so much chills from this!

Anonymous Musician : 3:17 You can actually hear his guitar slightly detune from the force of his playing. What passion! Absolutely incredible!

NELSON X : This guy has taken a great old song that deservedly was a hit in it's day and turned it into a monster that gives me the goosebumps. Fantastic.

Sarah Boller : I love Jack white!*☠❤💋🖤

Igor Brezovic : It's not about the sex of the singer... It's about emotion..

Bob Bigsby : Dolly had the best quote ever, " it costs a lot of money to look this cheap"!

satanic cyanide69 : This entire video has some really enigmatic badass eerie vibe.

slinkeyj3 : What I love it's that even though Jack could easily hold the spotlight, every time he really gets into it, he goes over to Meg, and they feed off each other's energy

it9911 : I really don't know much about their personal story, but I want to believe that they have kids now and living a happy life.

Hana : No lies if Jack White started a cult I would definitely join.

BLEΣΣED ZINES : Dolly Parton – Jolene Lyrics 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

ralf mitsch : The best version of Jolene I ever heard!

Clyde Pack : this song made my mom like jack white!!!!!

Charlie SideShow : THE version! The desperation, the humiliation, the drama! He really makes this his song! Love it!

Anthony Simeone : I really appreciate the fact the Jack did NOT change the gender pronouns in Dolly's song. It bugs the sh!t out of me when people do that. I'm looking at you, Sheryl Crow!

John Dou : It's like his voice has a whammy bar attached to it

Sage Cody : Can I please live in this sound forever

Ayham Shaheed : Wow. Jack's performance is stunning. The emotion he puts into it is incredible, how he seems to be pouring his heart out while singing this. I can't fault it in any way.

Terry Malone : Wow Jack White can do no wrong.

GarrBear314 : Great vocal performance. Really gets across the sense of desperation

Kelly Brincks : I miss the stripes

Bradley .Englebrick : My wife told me this is a Dolly Parton song but I am pretty sure he makes it his own. The intensity of this performance I cant get enough of.

melissa saint : Just once, I'd like to hear what different artists would do with Jack White's vocal chords.

Scott Mcilquham : "I'm in the right place but wrong time? That's how I feel everyday"

Gabe Johnston : I get chills EVERY SINGLE TIME I listen to this. It never gets old. Anyone talking shit about this version can suck it. It's brilliant.

Maverick : I cant imagine a better version of this song, allmost brings me to tears, its just so powerfull. Shit, it does bring me to tears.

maxmorts : 3:41 that’s just so raw, he seems like he really just let out a genuine cry.

oh look a falafel : Just listened to the album version and it's much worse! The despair and effort Jack brings to this performance makes it one of the best ever.

byron resende : Your smile is like a breath of spring Your voice is soft like summer rain And I cannot compete with you... Jolene

Chad E : Off the cuff raw emotion. Been coming back to this video for years. Gets better with age.

Lika Tskitishvili : His voice goes to places no human voice should be able to go... I'm amazed

An McCLO : only knowing, keep me simple for always, going, one wild-- train always, wipping, the simple man on letting, me go never knowing, by bloods, double love I'm always, peace, of love, forever showing, there's, more to stars, than just the 5th ahhh glowing, I'm patient by pretend calling, it rest of heels, over head knowing, the world was, always, a world of mine 1iX

Korey PsychoSin : There's so much passion in his voice it's just so beautiful and unique!

a person. : This is so underrated, I wish more people knew about this cover

JT King : I got into the stripes when I heard Seven Nation Army. Full disclosure, I was about six or seven in the early 70"s when I first heard Jolene original DP version. The song had a deep deep impact on me. A super DP fan, I think this version only confirms DP's status as one of the greatest song writers of the century. DP=Dolly Parton= Great Vocalist/Songwriter/Performer. Her song writing transcends genres and reaches genius level. Her vocal talent almost makes me think there may be a god.

Sibulle Vicious : how is a falsetto that high and that perfect even possible? mister jack white you amaze me.

Al R. : Jack White sounds exactly like Dolly at 44 rpm

team Golden : 0:05 "YEAAHH" *gets cut off*

Kurt Cocaine : The way he sings is fucking brilliant, perfect in fact.
