Subject: RE: Origins: 'Carolina Home'
Not much to tell about Laura's version.

Credits are:
My Carolina Home - Clayton McMichen, Bert Layne, Lowe Stokes 1927 BMI
Carolina Moon - Benny David & Joe Burke 1926,1956 BMI
Thanks to the Luke Smathers Band of Canton, NC for sharing their style of "mountain swing."

Way down there in Carolina
There's where I long to be
There's where he's waiting
'Neath the old pine tree
Oh, I can hear those mountains calling
Come to your mountain home
Back to your sweetheart
And your Carolina home

That is mostly backed by her OT banjo, then it shifts gears into Carolina Moon with a David Holt harmonica break, followed by the Carolina Moon vocal.

More about this excellent singer/banjo player at She has a new CD project with George Shuffler.   That's one of my priority "to order from Dick" choices.
