JOLE BLON

Studio rehearsal version #1


Jole Blon, Delta Flower
You're my darling, you're my sunshine
I love you, adore you forever
And I promise to be true

In the evening in the shadow
I'll be waiting in the alley
When I hear your voice, I rejoice
I'll send my love and my kisses to you

Sha la la, la la la la la
Sha la la la, sha la la la
Sha la la, la la la la la
Sha la la, la la la la

Jole Blon, Cajun Angel
Let me tell you that I love you
In the springtime we'd be married
But I'm still waiting for you

When your hair turns to silver
I'll still call you Delta Flower
I will still love you, darling
And I'll take care of you

Sha la la, la la la la la
Sha la la la, sha la la la
Sha la la, la la la la la
Sha la la, la la la la

We'll go away from this city
And we'll go back home to town
???
??? no one but you

Someday I will take you
Oh, someday I will take you
Someday, don't know when I'll take you
I'll take you from this room

Jole Blon, Cajun Angel
Let me save you from the ???
And
???
???

???
???
???
???
Say!

Jole Blon,
???
???
Jole Blon,
???

Jole Blon,

Jole Blon,

Jole Blon,

???
Jole Blon,
???
???

Jole Blon, someday I'll take you
??? the city
???
I will take you away
Yeah!


Info

The above lyrics are for a studio rehearsal version of JOLE BLON with the E Street Band recorded on 11 Jan 1980 at Telegraph Hill Studios, a make-shift studio in a converted barn at Springsteen's property on Telegraph Hill Road in Holmdel, NJ. This version was released on The Lost Masters Vol. 13 (Labour Of Love) [track 01] bootleg.

Three takes of JOLE BLON recorded on the same day at Telegraph Hill Studios are circulating among collectors. Also see studio rehearsal version #2, studio rehearsal version #3, and Gary U.S. Bonds' album version for more details.

Request

Unfortunately circulating audio recordings from the Telegraph Hill Studios rehearsals are of poor quality and Springsteen's vocals are buried under the instruments on virtually all of these recordings. Therefore much of this take's lyrics are unintelligible. For any additions, comments, or corrections, please contact me via the below form or by email: . You will be credited. Thanks in advance.
