lyrics

I left home to run just like my grandfather done
seeking fortune or the lord, whichever found me first
and my freedom I hold dear but as the years go by it's clear
that which is your blessing may also be your curse

cause I been away from you
learning a gambler's blues
wearing a rich man's shoes and a hangman's noose around my neck
if I could give it back
the paper money and the Cadillac
and pick up the dreams we had
would you be glad to see me again?
I wrote this letter from the road
but I swear it's never gonna be my home
Oh Carolina, bless my soul

I dreamed a highway made of glass
it was crooked it was fast
best that I could see it had no start
when I woke the dream was gone
and the night was deep and long
and all that I had left
was an aching in my heart

chorus
Oh Caroline, don't let me go
