Caroline
Old Crow Medicine Show Lyrics


They say you were born in St. Claire's hospital
I say you were born up in the sky
You come floatin' down over New Orleans
To the sweet green levee on the river side
And your voice chirped like old squeaky shoes
And momma always said we had nothing to lose
And so we danced on the street corner

[Chorus:]
Oh Caroline
(Round) Caroline
Heartbroken hard times, they never got us down
Walkin' the same line through every single southern town
Hand in hand your arm 'round mine
Oh Caroline

Oh Caroline
(Round) Caroline
I seen it all change and watch it change some more
Seen hard times standin' right outside your door
Tell me gal what's on your mind
Oh Caroline

We were the Cardinals' biggest fans
Turnin' flips like Ozzy Smith all through the night
'Til we got traded away
To the Red Clay Southern League up on the Georgia line
You be the pitcher and the catcher too
I'm the home run king before his muscles grew
Gonna knock the cover off this time

[Chorus:]

Oh Caroline
(Round) Caroline
I seen it all change and watch it change some more
Seen hard times standin' right outside your door
Tell me gal what's on your mind
Oh Caroline

These are different days
And the pace of the world has us thinking there's no time
To turn the other way
Take my hand and we'll walk on down the line
Though we may be a thousand miles apart
A brother and a sister have a single heart
And the beat don?t stop for nothin'

[Chorus:]

Oh Caroline
(Round) Caroline
I seen it all change and watch it change some more
Seen hard times standin' right outside your door
Tell me gal what's on your mind
Oh Caroline

Oh Caroline
Oh Caroline
Oh Caroline
Oh Caroline
Oh Caroline

This is my favorite OCMS song. I named my daughter after this song. I’ll see you again when I make it to the other side. Until then, I’ll hold you in my heart always Ellie Caroline.

THIS is what Country Music is supposed to sound like !!!

Ricky Parrish

@Not Agreeable its not bluegrass, its old timey. Bluegrass isn't played with a clawhammer banjo

Not Agreeable

@Tyler HillRight. Much better than country! It's considered Folk or Bluegrass.

Tyler Hill

@Not Agreeable no its not your average modern pop country garbage, its authentic bluegrass/country/folk music

This is bluegrass, country, folk. And bluegrass is sub category of country. Bluegrass is also a sub of folk. So you're wrong. This is country
