lyrics

A child swimming in the misty morning
Mockingbird lilting on the wing
A father driven or taken from his children
Mother bound a mind a golden ring

I left you in a war between the ages
Jim, Victoria, and the dawning day
I come home to find the dawn forsaken
The rising sun drowning in the waves

Caroline, Caroline,
I can't seem to get you off my mind
Caroline, Caroline,
You know I'll always love you, Caroline

Gone is the girl I left behind me
Gone are the winds that sang in the autumn leaves
Gone are them old Galax boys
Playing Bonaparte’s Retreat
Gone is all I loved of thee

Once a home, once a haven
Bitterly to weep, no longer mine
Still the blood, still the fire
Still the once great heart of Caroline

Caroline, Caroline,
I can't seem to get you off my mind
Caroline, Caroline,
You know I'll always love you, Caroline

Gone is the girl I left behind me
Gone are the winds that sang in the autumn leaves
Well, tell me what love is more eternal than a memory
Caroline that's all I'll take of thee

Gather round all ya good time ramblers
Gather round ya ladies fair and fine
Listen not to that broken hearted sailor
And listen not to his song of Caroline
Listen not to his song of Caroline
