Come On Over is an album by Olivia Newton-John, released in 1976. It peaked at #2 on the Country album charts, and #13 on the all-genre chart.

The album's first track, a cover of Dolly Parton's "Jolene", was only released as a single in Japan, and it became a big hit there, peaking at #11 on the Oricon singles chart. The album itself was also a big success in the Japanese market, reaching the #2 position on the Oricon album chart.

In the U.S., the only single released from the album was the title song, written by Barry Gibb and Robin Gibb and originally featured on the Bee Gees' 1975 album Main Course. It was a moderate pop hit, peaking at #23 on the Billboard Hot 100, but did much better on the country (#5) and adult contemporary (seventh of ten #1 singles) charts. The album was certified Gold.[3]

The album also included versions of the traditional song "Greensleeves" and The Beatles' "The Long and Winding Road" (the ending track), as well as "Who Are You Now?", originally featured in the 1973 movie Hurry Up, or I'll Be 30. Besides Parton's "Jolene" the album also boasts covers of recent country hits by Willie Nelson ("Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain") and Lynn Anderson ("Smile For Me").
