Well, I'm walkin' in the hills of Carolina Through the heat as thick as the blood That moves my bones And I don't think much about nothing in Carolina But it sure feels nice Not walkin' on steel and stone
Chorus: Far away from everything that keeps me from you, Acceptance found in walkin' another mile And the things I left undone Become the things I'll never do
Cause I'm floatin' on the wind in Carolina But my feet still slip in the mud That holds me down And I can't help takin' my time in Carolina Cause the highway hummin' Might keep me from comin' around
Bridge: Long gone, it's only one more minute of another long day Hold on, it's time I gave back Just a little bit of change
Cause I'm walking in the hills of Carolina Through the heat as thick as the blood That saved my soul And there ain't no doubt about nothing in Carolina Boy, it sure feels nice Not living on bread alone
So I think I'll stick around a little while in Carolina...
