Oh My Sweet Carolina

This song is by Counting Crows.

This song is a cover of "Oh My Sweet Carolina" by Ryan Adams.
I went down to Houston and I stopped in San Antone,
I passed up the station for the bus,
Was trying to find me something,
But I wasn't? sure just what,
Man I ended up with pockets full of dust,
So I went on to Cleveland and I ended up insane,
Bought a borrowed suit and learned to dance,
And I was spending money like the way it likes to rain,
And I ended up with pockets full of cane.

Oh my sweet Carolina,
What compels me to go?
Oh my sweet disposition,
May you one, one day,
May you one day carry me home.

I ain't? never been to Vegas,
But I gambled up my life,
Building newsprint boats I race to sewer mains,
Was trying to find me something
But I wasn't? sure just what,
Funny how they say that some things never change.

Oh my sweet Carolina,
What compels me to go?
Oh my sweet disposition,
May you one day carry me home.

Yeah well up here in the city,
Feels like things are closing in,
The sunsets just my light bulb burning out,
I miss Kentucky and I miss my family,
All the sweetest winds they blow across the south.

Oh my sweet Carolina,
What compels me to go?
Oh my sweet disposition,
May you one day carry me home.

Oh my sweet Carolina,
What compels me to go?
Oh my sweet disposition,
May you one day carry me home,
May you one day carry me home, oh,
May you one day carry me home.
