Ronnie Milsap – Carolina Dreams lyrics

I can smell the pines sweet Carolina's on my mind
I still feel that mountain breeze whisperin' through the trees
Tears fell from her eyes I held her as we said goodbye
She knew I didn't want to go but here I am tonight alone
Dreaming Carolina dreams in Tennessee
And someday soon I'll have her here with me
Until then she knows I miss her and tonight I'll go to sleep
Dreaming Carolina dreams in Tennessee

The cotton mill shut down they laid off folks for miles around
I had to leave to find some work the hardest part was leaving her
Nashville Tennessee it'd be beautiful if she was with me
But alone it's just another place till I close my eyes and see her face
I'm dreaming Carolina dreams...

Though we're miles apart we're sharing the same moon
When it's shining on her it's shining on me too
[ strings ]
I'm dreaming Carolina dreams in Tennessee
And someday soon I'll have her here with me
I'm dreaming Carolina dreams Carolina dreams Carolina dreams
