Carolina in my Mind
Written by James Taylor




In my mind I'm gone to Carolina,
Can't you see the sunshine?
Can't you just feel the moonshine?
Ain't it just like a friend of mine,
To hit me from behind?
Yes, I'm gone to Carolina in my mind.


Karin, she's a silver sun,
You best walk her way and watch it shine ,
And watch her watch the morning come,
A silver tear appearing now,
I'm cryin', ain't I?
Gone to Carolina in my mind.


There ain't no doubt in no ones mind ,
That love's the finest thing around,
Whisper something soft and kind,
And hey babe, the sky's on fire,
I'm dying, ain't I?
Gone to Carolina in my mind.



Dark and silent, late last night,
I think I might have heard the highway call ,
And geese in flight and dogs that bite,
The signs that might be omens say,
I'm goin', goin',
I'm gone to Carolina in my mind.


With a holy host of others standin' around me,
Still I'm on the dark side of the moon,
And it seems like it goes on like this forever,
You must forgive me, forgive me if ...



I'm gone ....
say nice things about me 'cause I'm gone
