RYAN ADAMS - Carolina Rain lyrics

rate me

Rose lived on the south side of town

Until her landlord showed up with two hundred dollar bills

A notice of eviction on the other hand

Now she don't live there no more,

And everyone thinks he drowned,

I pulled into Mecklenburg on them trains

Into a station that got flooded when they opened up the dam

And broke their connections to the railway lines

So they could blast into the quarry,

And for every load of granite,

We got a ton of worry

One night at the diner over eggs,

Over easy she showed me the length of her legs,

But that gold plated cross on her neck, it was real

And you don't get that kind of money from pushing meal

I should've told him that you were the one for me,

But I lied, But I lied,

To most any drifter whose looking for work is too weird

I met Percy and I married her in July

But if only to be closer to you, Caroline

Percy and I moved down the street

Until we lost two pretty girls

One was seven and one was three

Alderman and Caroline owned the house right up the hill

Where we laid those babies down

So they could still see our house

Suspicion got the best of old Alderman Haint

He owned an auto parts store off the interstate

But the lord took him home in July

And then Rose spilled the beans on the day that he died

I should've told him that you were the one for me

But I lied, But I lied

Tied up to concrete at the bottom of the quarry

With a tattoo on his heart that spelled out "Caroline"

He was silent but his rosary

Drifted into the custody

Of a sheriff that was just deputized

And I was down at the banquet hall

When two guys came up, pretty angry and drunk

And I'm still here at the banquet hall

At the banquet hall

Where the gun went off, in the Carolina Rain

In the Carolina Rain, in the Carolina Rain

Oh, Caroline
