Intro: E | A A/G# | F#m7 | B7sus4

Chorus:
     E              A       A/G# F#m7 B
     In my mind I’m gone to Carolina.
     A                 B
     Can’t you see the sunshine?
     F#m7                    B7sus4 B
     Can’t you just feel the moonshining?
     E             B/D#   C#m       Bsus4
     Ain’t it just like a friend of mine
        A      E/G#    F#7
     To hit me from behind?
     B7       E       C#m7 F#m7 B7sus4 E
     Yes, I’m gone to Carolina in my mind.

Instrumental: E | E

Karen, she’s a silver sun,
           A                 B        G#7/C    C#m
You’d best walk her away and watch it shining.
          A                    B Bsus4 B
Watch her watch the morning come.
  A             E/G#
A silver tear appearing now
    C#m7 F#7 F#m7    B7
I’m crying, ain’t I?
    E	    C#m7 F#m7 B7sus4 E
I’m gone to Carolina in my mind.

Instrumental: E | E

      E                 Dadd9
There ain’t no doubt in noone’s mind
     A                 B      G#7/C  C#m
That love’s the finest thing around.
        A                   B    Badd9
Whisper something soft and kind.
    A                E/G#
And hey, babe, the sky’s on fire,
    C#m7 F#7 F#m7   B7
I’m dying, ain’t I?

I’m gone to Carolina in my mind.

     Can’t you just feel the moonshining?
     E             B/D#   C#m       Bsus4

E               D
Dark and silent late last night,
          A                    B       G#7/C    C#m
I think I might have heard the highway calling.
               A                    B Badd9
Geese in flight and dogs that bite.
    A                   E/G#
The signs that might be omens say
    C#m7 F#7   F#m7 B7sus4
I’m going, I’m going,
    E       C#m7 F#m7 B7sus4 E
I’m gone to Carolina in my mind.

Instrumental: E | E

          A            B                 C#m
   With a Holy host of others standing around me,
   G#m              F#m              A     B
   Still I’m on the dark side of the moon.
          D                  A               E
   And it seems like it goes on like this forever.
               D        F#m7/C# F#m7
   You must forgive me…
   B7sus4        E       C#m7 F#m7 Bsus4 E
   If I’m up and gone to Carolina in my mind.

Instrumental: E | E

     Can’t you see the sunshine?

     Can’t you just feel the moonshining?
     E             B/D#   C#m       B
     Ain’t it just like a friend of mine
        A      E/G#   F#7
     To hit me from behind?
