Carolina

lyrics

Night tonight we made good time,
Straddling that yellow line.
Another town, the same old songs.
My mind is racing down the street.
These shoes are suffocating me.
The only place I want to be is gone.

Take me where them rolling hills
Can gather up and cure my ills.
Let me smell that long-leaf pine.
Here I come clear off a space,
Just don't for get my name or face
Before I get back down to Caroline.

Oh, oh, Carolina.
Over greener hills.
Beside bluer waters,
Carolina, I love you still.

America's so big and great,
Goes coast to coast, goes state to state.
I love you from the east to the west.
New York island, California,
Woody Guthrie had it for you,
But there's a corner of you I love best.

Oh, oh, Carolina.
Over greener hills.
Beside bluer waters,
Carolina, I love you still.

'Cause nothing could be finer
Than to know where you stand
And feel that big love coming down.

Hey, gray skies, don't rain on me.
I got someplace I got to be.
This emptiness is all in me, I think I should be going.
Sixty-one or sixty-six,
Any road can give you kicks,
But only one can carry you back home.

Oh, oh, Carolina.
Over greener hills.
Beside bluer waters,
Carolina, I love you still.
Carolina, I love you still.
Carolina, I love you still.
