Hills of Caroline
by C. Carson Parks

Troubles in this city 'bout to get me
Seem to be making me old before my time
But I'm on my way this very day and everything's gonna be just fine
When I get back to the hills of Caroline.

Thinkin' 'bout the friends I left behind me
I can hear the breeze come whisperin' through the pine
And I'm on my way this very day and everything's gonna be just fine
When I get back to the hills of Caroline.

Bridge
Well, the great smoky mountains are my home
why did I ever want to roam?

But I gotta go back home to those who love me
I gotta see the land that I call mine
And I'm on my way this very day and everything's gonna be just fine
When I get back to the hills of Caroline.
