Thread Name: Origins: My Carolina Home (McMichen, Layne, Stokes
Subject: Lyr Add: MY CAROLINA HOME (McMichen, Layne, Stokes
From the sheet music at Indiana University Sheet Music Collections:

Clayton McMichen, Bert Layne and Lowe Stokes
New York: Joseph M. Davis, 1927.

1. I've been so lonely since I left my home, all for you.
I know you are waiting. I love you true.
I'll never leave Carolina again, my old home.
There, dear, I'll always linger. Never again will I roam.

CHORUS: For way down there in Carolina, there's where I long to be.
There's where she's waiting, 'neath the old pine tree.
I can hear those mountains calling, "Come to your mountain home,
Back to your Thelma and your Carolina home."

2. Days are so long and the nights are so short, when away.
Thinking about you dear, I can't help say:
I keep regretting the time that I left, my old home.
I will promise to you, dear, never again will I roam.
