IT'S SUNDAY DOWN IN CAROLINE Symes / Neiburg / Levinson as recorded by The Boswell Sisters with The Dorsey Brothers Orchestra June 13th 1933 New York When it's Sunday down in Caroline; Lazy sun is shinin', my heart's at ease, I can hear the music in the mornin' breeze, Folks can stay in bed 'til any time they please When it's Sunday down in Caroline. Four and twenty hours set aside for play, Cotton is forgotten down old Dixie way, Heaven comes a-callin' ev'ry seventh day When it's Sunday down in Caroline. Church bells do be ringin', hallelujah! Hallelujah comin' brave. Darkies do be singin', hallelujah! Singin' their sins away. Love don't have to wait 'til the evenin' time, There's no work to keep me from that gal o' mine, I'll be off to meet her when the church bells chime When it's Sunday down in Caroline. Lazy sun a-shinin', my heart's at ease, I can hear music in the mornin' breeze, Folks stay in bed 'til they please When it's Sunday down in Caroline. Four and twenty hours set aside for play, Cotton is forgotten down old Dixie way, Heaven calls around on that day When it's Sunday down in Caroline. Church bells will be ringin', Hallelujah comin' brave. Darkies will be singin', Singin' their blues away. Oh love don't have to wait until the evenin' time, No work gonna keep me from that gal o' mine, When the church bells chime Sunday down in Caroline. (Transcribed by Peter Akers - June 2014)
