Caroline Chords


I found some tabs of this song, wich were essentially the right chords but played 
the wrong way, so here is my version of the song.

play with the capo on the first fret, just the normal open chords, in relation to the capo. 
(so with the capo the c should be: (032001) the C played is actually a D but OCMS 
plays it with capo)

They say you were born in St. Claire’s hospital 
F                             C
I say you were born up in the sky 
You come floatin’ down over New Orleans 
       F                                 C
To the sweet green levee on the riverside 
And your voice chirped like old squeaky shoes 
And momma always said we had nothing to lose 
C         G                       F
And so we danced on the street corner

   C    F
Oh Caroline (Caroline)
F                                  C
Heartbroken hard times, they never got us down 
F                             C            Am     
Walkin’ the same line through every single southern town 
Hand in hand your arm ‘round mine 
       F  C
Oh Caroline
   C    F
Oh Caroline (Caroline) 
  F                            C
I seen it all change, watch it change some more 
F                        C                  Am
Seen hard times standin’ right outside your door 
Tell me girl what’s on your mind 
   F    C
Oh Caroline

We were the Cardinal’s biggest fans 
Turnin’ flips like Ozzy Smith all through the night 
‘Til we got traded away 
To the Red Clay Southern League up on the Georgia line 
You could be the pitcher and the catcher too 
I’m the home run king before his muscles grew 
Gonna knock the cover off this town 


These are different days 
And the pace of the world has us thinking there’s 
No time to turn the other way 
Take my hand and we’ll walk on down the line 
Though we may be a thousand miles apart 
A brother and a sister have a single heart 
And the beat don’t stop for nothin’. 


enjoy playing it, its a great song!
