Written by James Taylor

In my mind I'm gone to Carolina
Can't you see the sunshine, and can't you just feel the moonshine
And ain't it just like a friend of mine to hit me from behind
And I'm gone to Carolina in my mind.

  1. Karen she's a silver sun, you'd best walk her away and watch it shine
    Watch her watch the morning come.
    A silver tear appearing now I'm crying, ain't I?
    I'm gone to Carolina in my mind.
  2. Now there ain't no doubt in no one's mind that love's the finest thing around
    Whisper something soft and kind.
    And hey, babe the sky's on fire--I'm dying, ain't I?
    I'm gone to Carolina in my mind.
    In my mind I'm gone to Carolina
    Can't you see the sunshine, and can't you just feel the moonshine
    And ain't it just like a friend of mine to hit me from behind
    And I'm gone to Carolina in my mind.
  3. Dark and silent late last night I think I might have heard the highway call
    Geese in flight and dogs that bite
    And sighs that might be omens say I'm goin', goin'
    I'm gone to Carolina in my mind.
    In my mind I'm gone to Carolina
    Can't you see the sunshine, and can't you just feel the moonshine
    And ain't it just like a friend of mine to hit me from behind
    And I'm gone to Carolina in my mind.
