I've seen Carolina cry and oh have I seen her smile
And even though its been a while, I can still see her sun shine.
Small as a child no more than 4ft from the ground,
I swear one day I saw her crown.
Sweet Caroline I nicknamed her.
Summer days spent Sipping sweet lemonade , never dreamed I'd grow up and leave her one day..
I've seen Caroline harvest through rain.
I've seen her fold under pain.
I remember a time we'd all thought she'd given up,
Until she pulled through that fateful day.
Nourished Mama's figs and tomatoes, smiles and laughter filled the day..
I'll never forget the smile in her sky, as I danced In the garden that way.
Carolina autumn days turn to Carolina's deep evenings.
Orange sky, red ground, autumn is my favorite Carolina season.
Winter came and harvest died but sweet Caroline continued to smile.
Spring's rain brought harvest again..Never forget Mama and me dancing in the rain outside..
Summer brought on Jazzy June, fish fry's and barbecues...
Fields filled with those I love..
My Carolina People I love you!
Palmetto white and Indigo blue wave prideful In a sky so blue
Sweet Caroline I pray you always pull through!
