CAROLINA ROLLING STONE (Music: Eleanor Young & Harry D. Squires / Lyrics: Mitchell Parish) Ernest Hare - 1921 Vernon Dalhart - 1922 Al Bernard - 1922 Elliott Shaw & Charles H. Hart - 1922 Just a while ago at a picture show There upon the screen appeared an old familiar scene Just a cabin door, that was all I saw But it made me long for Home Sweet Home Like I never did before Poor little me, I’m just a Carolina rolling stone I want to be with the folks I call my own It seems the fields of snowy white are calling me tonight And I can see my dear old Mammy waiting by the window light Down in my heart there is a pain that never lets me rest Why did I start from the ones I love the best I get so homesick now and then, I’ll soon be rolling home again Because I’m always alone, I’m just a Carolina rolling stone Rolling stones are fine, always change their minds They roll home because they never gather any moss Teardrops fill their eyes when they realise There's no other place like Home Sweet Home That's the reason my heart cries Poor little me, I’m just a Carolina rolling stone I want to be with the folks I call my own It seems the fields of snowy white are calling me tonight And I can see my dear old Mammy waiting by the window light Down in my heart there is a pain that never lets me rest Why did I start from the ones I love the best I get so homesick now and then, I’ll soon be rolling home again Because I’m always alone, I’m just a Carolina rolling stone Marched my way through Georgia, Mississippi too Got the trav’lin fever, so I blew Down to Louisiana, stayed a while and then My doggone dogs started itchin’ again Been to Alabamy, sunny Tennessee What’s good enough for Mammy is good enough for me Bought a one-way ticket, leave tonight at nine For I must state the bestest state is Caroline I get so homesick now and then, I’ll soon be rolling home again Because I’m always alone, I’m just a Carolina rolling stone (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2016)
