Carolina In My Mind Chords
Demo Lyrics & Pdf

In this one called Carolina In My Mind, it's one of those James Taylor songs with a lot of chord changes.

But the rhythm in the song remains a steady shuffle with a  root up down up root up down up pattern pretty much all the way through. If you watch my right hand in the demo you'll see what I mean.

The Carolina In My Mind chords are as follows:

  • D
  • G
  • D/Gb
  • Em
  • A7
  • D/Db
  • Bm
  • Bm/A
  • C
  • E
  • Esus
  • A7sus
  • Dbm
  • G6

There isn't any major picking in this song but a series of hammer-ons come in handy, for example while playing the D chord  and blending in a Dsus and a Dsus2.

Carolina In My Mind Lyrics

In my mind Im goin to carolina ---- cant you see the sunshine
Cant you just feel the moonlight
And aint it just like a friend of mine ... it hit me from behind
Yes Im goin to carolina in my mind

Karen shes a silver sun you best walk her way and watch it shinin
Watch her watch the mornin come
A silver tear appearing now Im cryin ,,, aint I
Said Im goin to carolina in my mind
There aint no doubt in no ones mind that loves the finest thing around
Whisper something soft and kind
And hey babe the skys on fire, Im dyin ---- aint I
Say Im goin to carolina in my mind

In my mind Im goin to carolina ---- cant you see the sunshine
Cant you just feel the moonlight
And aint it just like a friend of mine ... it hit me from behind
Yes Im goin to carolina in my mind

Dark and silent late last night I think I might have heard the highway calling
Geese in flight and dogs that bite
And signs that might be omens say I going ---- yes I gotta be goin
Im goin to carolina in my mind
Now with a holy host of others standing round me
Still Im on the dark side of the moon
And it looks like it goes on like this forever
You must forgive me ---------- if Im up and gone to carolina in my mind

In my mind Im goin to carolina ---- cant you see the sunshine
Cant you just feel the moonlight
And aint it just like a friend of mine ... it hit me from behind
Yes Im goin to carolina in my mind

Yes Im goin to carolina in ------ my mind
Said Im goin to carolina in my mind --- Id better get myself home again real soon
