My home was in the Midwest flatlands; left it there, myself to find.
Headed east and somewhat southward, found rolling hills in Caroline
A cowgirl roped my lonely heart there and took me to her farm
I never knew sweet love could find me. We fell forever arm in arm

Caroline, sweet brown eyes. Caroline, deep blue skies
Caroline, you stole my heart. Caroline, we’ll never part

We explored this land together; ‘cross the countryside we roamed
Found there was no greater beauty than our Carolina home
Many years we’ve shared together. Loving friends have come & gone
Sweet Caroline has made our family. A truer love, there could be none


Sandy beaches, Blue Ridge mountains, city lights and family farms
Shades of life more than Giverny, caring souls with loving arms
Though we’re older now, and golden, and we’re rooted to this land
I have become a misplaced Yankee, sweet Caroline, my heart & hand
