Going To Caroline
Going up to see my gal
Going to Caroline
Going up to see my gal
Gonna make her mine

I know she’s waiting there
She’s so fine
Going up to see my gal
Gonna make her mine

Left my home down in the country
Left my farm and family
Went out on that blacktop road
Just to see what I could see

I got me a job in the city
And they paid me by the hour
Called my mama on the phone
I can still hear her cry

On a starry, starry summer night
I saw the girl of my dreams
Walked hand in hand
in the pale moonlight
She was still in her teens

Years have come
And years have gone
Since our wedding day
I love that gal from Caroline
And I still have to say
