LOS ANGELES — Grammy-winner Beyonce has revamped lyrics of Dolly Parton’s iconic 1973 song ‘Jolene’, as she covered the track for her album ‘Cowboy Carter’.

Beyonce’s country-themed album has 27 tracks that not only comprises the ‘Jolene’ cover with new lyrics, but also an interlude from Parton herself.

A big alteration was made to the chorus, with the original having Parton pleading with another woman. Beyonce changed the lyrics where she gives a strict warning to the woman to not “come for my man,” reports

The ‘Naughty Girl’ hitmaker also made changes to lyrics in the verses, where Parton had originally sung about the woman’s beauty.

Towards the end of the second verse, Beyonce changed the words to show that she had the confidence her man would stay by her side.

Earlier this month, Parton had hinted that Beyonce may have covered ‘Jolene’.
