Carolina In My Mind - Previously Unreleased Mono Demo Version - Lyrics

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

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

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

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

With the holy host of others standing all around my grave
Still I'm on the dark side of the moon
And I feel like it goes on this way forever
Forgive me if I'm gone to Carolina in my mind

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

Dark and silent late last night
Think I might have heard the highway call
Geese in flight and dogs that bite
And signs that might be omens say I'm goin', goin'
Gone to Carolina in my mind

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