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 from her I’ll never stray in the cabin in the hills of Caroline Chorus: Oh, the cabin in the shadow 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. Chorus And when it’s late at night, and the moon is shinin’ bright And the whippoorwill 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. Chorus
