Subject: ADD: My Carolina Home
Stewie has all the information down, but let me put it all together:

MY CAROLINA HOME
(Clayton McMichen)

Way down down in the hills of Carolina
That's's where I long to be
That's where he's waiting
Beneath the old pine tree
I can hear the mountains calling
Come back to your cabin home
Back to your Elmer
And your Carolina home.

Carolina moon, keep shining
Shine on the one who waits for me
Back home in the Blue Ridge
That's where my heart longs to be
I can hear the mountains calling
Come back to your cabin home
Back to your Elmer
And your Carolina home.


transcribed from a recording by The Herald Angels (Alice Gerrard, Sharon Sandomirsky, and GailGillespie) - Old-Time Music on the Air CD. The lyrics share a couple of lines with Carolina Moon, but the tune is quite different.
