Carolina in My Mind by The Petersens

We started back our live shows this week (limited seating, limited dates, and as many health precautions as we can possibly take, of course) and we had a blast getting to share our music with a live audience again. That being said, we will not forget about you, YouTube! And just to prove it, here is our cover of 'Carolina in My Mind'. Katie's voice is absolutely gorgeous on it and the setting at the stables at Dogwood Canyon seemed to fit very well.

We are so thankful for our friends at Big Cedar letting us use their venues! For this one, Aaron had us in their stables with some gorgeous horses in the background.

►LYRICS - Carolina in my Mind
In my mind I'm gone to Carolina
Can't you see the sunshine?
Can't you just feel the moon shinin'
Ain't it just like a friend of mine
To hit me from behind
Yes, I'm gone to Carolina in my mind

Well, Karen, she's a silver sun
You best walk her way and watch it shine
Watch her watch the mornin' come
A silver tear appearing now
I'm cryin', ain't I
Gone to Carolina in my mind

Well, there ain't no doubt in no one's mind
That love's the finest thing around
I'll whisper something soft and kind
Like hey babe, the sky's on fire
I'm dyin', ain't I
Gone to Carolina in my mind

In my mind I'm gone to Carolina
Can't you see the sunshine
Can't you just feel the moon shinin'
Ain't it just like a friend of mine
To hit me from behind
Yes, I'm gone to Carolina in my mind

Well, dark and silent late last night
You know I might have heard the highway call
And geese in flight and dogs that bite
Well, the signs that might be omens say
I'm going, I'm going
I'm gone to Carolina in my mind

And with a holy host of others
Standin' around me
Still I'm on the dark side of the moon
And it seems like it goes on like this forever
You must forgive me
If I'm up and gone to Carolina in my mind

In my mind I'm gone to Carolina
Can't you see the sunshine
Can't you just feel the moon shinin'
Ain't it just like a friend of mine
To hit me from behind
Yes, I'm gone to Carolina in my mind

Yes, I'm gone to Carolina in my mind
I'm gone to Carolina in my mind
(I'm gone)
I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone
Say nice things about me 'cause
I'm gone south now
Carry on without me
I'm gone
I'm gone to Carolina in my mind
