Eric Bachmann – Carrboro Woman lyrics

Carrboro woman, won't you come with me
There's some place I want to go
And I don't want to go alone
But what I want ain't what I need
And something else you ought to know
That if you come, you're on your own
I'm no good at riding side by side
I travel lean
And I will try my best to be
To you no burden, weight, or beast
I hope it's clear and that you understand
As we take each other's hands
You ain't my woman
And woman, I am not your man

I do believe we all belong and everything that's right
And wrong
Comes from a light that you can't see but if you try
You can feel it swell and rise slowly reaching out to
Find you
Open the door ain't nobody yours
So there ain't no reason to run from all you're losing

I came upon a wounded beast
She was lying in the sand
Her heart held in her hand
How do you pretend to try
To save a thing that's meaning to die
Do you try or walk on by
So Carrboro woman, won't you walk with me
There's some place I have to go
And I don't want to go alone
And if what you want ain't where I'll be
Then my love I'll understand
You ain't my woman
And woman, I am not your man
