(Vince Gill)
Vince Gill & Alison Krauss & Billy Thomas

I was born in Guilford county way back up in the pines
It's where I hold the sweetest mem'ries in the hills of Caroline
My daddy wasn't much of nothin' he spent his life doin' time
Mama learned me about Jesus in the hills of Caroline.

--- Instrumental ---

Met a girl her name was Havvie fair and tender sweet and kind
She showed me how to love a woman in the hills of Caroline
I always thought that we would marry one sweet day she would be mine
But Havvie's gone to live with Jesus in the hills of Caroline.

--- Instrumental ---

If I should die before tomorrow
Just one request if you don't mind
Just burry me right next to Havvie in the hills of Caroline
Just burry me right next to Havvie in the hills of Caroline.

--- Instrumental to fade ---
