Lyrics and Music by James Taylor


Intro: A | D D/C# | Bm7 | E7sus4

Chorus:
     A              D       D/C# Bm7  E
     In my mind I’m gone to Carolina.
     D                 E
     Can’t you see the sunshine?
     Bm7                     E7sus4 E
     Can’t you just feel the moonshining?
     A             E/G#   F#m       Esus4
     Ain’t it just like a friend of mine
        D      A/C#    B7
     To hit me from behind?
     E7       A
     Yes, I’m gone
        F#m7 Bm7  E7sus4 A
     To Carolina in my mind.

Instrumental: A | A

A              G
Karen, she’s a silver sun,
           D
You’d best walk her away
    E        C#7/F    F#m
And watch it shining.
          D                    E Esus4 E
Watch her watch the morning come.
  D             A/C#
A silver tear appearing now
    F#m7 B7  Bm7     E7
I’m crying, ain’t I?
    A       F#m7 Bm7  E7sus4 A
I’m gone to Carolina in my mind.

Instrumental: A | A

      A                 Gadd9
There ain’t no doubt in noone’s mind
     D                 E      C#7/F  F#m
That love’s the finest thing around.
        D                   E    Eadd9
Whisper something soft and kind.
    D                A/C#
And hey, babe, the sky’s on fire,
    F#m7 B7  Bm7    E7
I’m dying, ain’t I?
    A       F#m7 Bm7  E7sus4 A
I’m gone to Carolina in my mind.

Instrumental: A | A

Chorus:
     A              D       Bm7  Eadd9
     In my mind I’m gone to Carolina.
     D                 Eadd9
     Can’t you see the sunshine?
     Bm7                     E
     Can’t you just feel the moonshining?
     A             E/G#   F#m       Esus4
     Ain’t it just like a friend of mine
        D      A/C#   B7
     To hit me from behind?
     E7       A
     Yes, I’m gone
        F#m7 Bm7  E7sus4 A
     To Carolina in my mind.

Instrumental: A | A

A               G
Dark and silent late last night,
          D
I think I might have heard
    E       C#7/F    F#m
The highway calling.
               D                    E Eadd9
Geese in flight and dogs that bite.
    D                   A/C#
The signs that might be omens say
    F#m7 B7    Bm7  E7sus4
I’m going, I’m going,
    A       F#m7 Bm7  E7sus4 A
I’m gone to Carolina in my mind.

Instrumental: A | A

          D            E
   With a Holy host of others
              F#m
   Standing around me,
   C#m              Bm
   Still I’m on the dark side
          D     E
   Of the moon.
          G
   And it seems like
           D               A
   It goes on like this forever.
               G        Bm7/F#  Bm7
   You must forgive me…
   E7sus4        A
   If I’m up and gone
      F#m7 Bm7  Esus4 A
   To Carolina in my mind.

Instrumental: A | A

Chorus:
     A              D       Bm7  E
     In my mind I’m gone to Carolina.
     D                 E
     Can’t you see the sunshine?
     Bm7                     E
     Can’t you just feel the moonshining?
     A             E/G#   F#m       E
     Ain’t it just like a friend of mine
        D      A/C#   B7
     To hit me from behind?
     E7sus4   A

     To Carolina in my mind.

     Gone, I’m gone, I’m gone.

Instrumental: A E/G# | F#m7 E

     D        A/C#    Bm7
     Say nice things about me,
         E7sus4  A E/G# F#m7     E
     ’Cause I’m gone southbound.
     D     A/C#   Bm

     I’m gone…
