Jolene

We heard "Jolene" by the White Stripes on the radio and none of us knew what album it was on. I had heard the song before, but I wasn't sure why. So for those of you who were in the car, here are the details:

- Jolene was released as a b-side to the "Hello Operator" vinyl single
- Jolene was also a bonus track on a Japanese version of White Blood Cells
- Jolene is played a lot in concert, so I was probably remembering the song from the Berkeley concert

Jack White does five songs on the Cold Mountain Soundtrack (credited to him solo, not the White Stripes)

Update: alejandra points out that this is a Dolly Parton cover.
