Charleston, SC

C G F C C G F C D (C) Bm
 In the South Carolina lowlands
there's a place where the cypress grow
and when I'm feelin' sad
it's the place I wanna go
where the Spanish moss is a hangin'
from palmetto to the ground
and the wide old Cooper River
 runs down to Charleston town

it's here the sweet, sweet blossoms
of magnolia burst in spring
and the air's so full of spirit
from the gospel tunes they sing

when the winter wind's do whistle
or the summer breezes blow
if I'm ever tired and lonesome
there's a place I always go
and if all I ever wanted
was to carry me away
I'd vow to my fair city
I'd return gain some day


Instrumental v&r

and the wide old Cooper River
runs down to Charleston town
and the wide old Ashley River
runs down to Charleston
