Cabin in Caroline lyrics
There’s a cabin in the pines in the hills of Caroline
And a blue-eyed girl is waiting there for me
I’ll be going back someday and for her I’ll never stray
And the cabin in the hills of Caroline
Oh the cabin in the shadows of the pines
And a blue-eyed girl way down in Caroline
Someday she’ll be my wife and we’ll live a happy life
In the cabin in the hills of Caroline
I’m packin’ my grip for that long long trip
Back to the hills of Caroline
I want to see that blue-eyed girl she’s the sweetest in the world
And the cabin in the hills of Caroline.
And when it’s late at night and the moon is shinin’ bright
And the whipoorwill is calling from the hill
Then I’ll tell her of my love beneath the stars above
How I love her now and I know I always will.
