[D]He said: "The storm is gettin' [A]stronger,"
[Bm]As he climbed in[A]side my [G]truck.[A]
[D]"I'm headed back to Caro[A]lina,
[Bm]"God's will an' [A]any [G]luck."[A]
[D]An' he told me how he'd left his [A]family,
[Bm]So many [A]years [G]ago.[A]
[D]An' he'd seen the whole world on the [A]shoulders,
[Bm]But now it's time to [A]go back [G]home.[A]
[D]An' he said: "This road goes on for[A]ever:
[Bm]"I've been travellin' [A]all my [G]life.[A]
[D]"An' I've seen the rain, I've felt the [A]thunder,
[Bm]"But it never [A]changed my [G]mind:[A]
"I'm goin' back to Caro[D]line."[A] [Bm] [A-G] [A]
I dropped him off at the State line,
An' then I thought about my life.
An' everything I left behind me:
Two children an' my wife.
I left 'em waitin' for a 'phone call,
An' that was twenty days ago.
But now I'm in it for the long-haul,
An' it's time to go back home.
An' this damn road keeps gettin' longer:
I've been travellin' it some time.
An' I've seen the rain, I've felt the thunder roll on,
But it never changed my mind:
I'm goin' back to Caroline."
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Whoa, Lord, I'm going back to Caroline.
