AnneMC Lyr Req: Carolina Mountain Home - the 3rd verse (11) Lyr Req: Carolina Mountain Home - the 3rd verse 04 Jan 12


This is the wonderful Debby McClatchy version,with her awesome banjo accompaniment. I'd appreciate the missing lyrics in the third verse:

I left my old home back in the mountains
For many long years I roamed around
I can hear that lonesome whistle blowin'
I'm going back there to settle down

        I love those Carolina mountains
        The little girl I left behind
        And I know that I never will forget her
        Oh, how I long to make her mine

I looked out my window and wondered
How everything there seems the same
I can see those blue eyes of my darlin'
I'm going back there to change her name

I thought I'd head for the big time
I thought her bright eyes would be my guide
