To Guest.Phil

My Grandfather (Papa) sang this song to me exactly as you have typed.

Way down yonder 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.

He never sang the verse. Papa was born in 1909 ....

Brings back sweet memories.
