​Carolina Pines

This song is by Kate Wolf and appears on the album Poet's Heart (1985).

Just an old house with the roof falling in
Standing at the edge of the field
Watching the crops grow as it's always done before
Nobody lives here any more.

The sun's going down in the carolina pines
I'm a long way from home and I miss that love of mine
Broken windows, empty doors, nobody lives here any more.

Old memories come whistling like the wind
Through the walls and the cracked window panes
And the grass is growing high around the kitchen door
Nobody lives here any more.

The sun's going down in the carolina pines
I'm a long way from home and I miss that love of mine
Broken windows, empty doors, nobody lives here any more.

Once there were children and a few hired hands
A hard-working woman and a bone-tired man
Now that old sun steals across a dusty floor
Nobody lives here any more.

The sun's going down in the carolina pines
I'm a long way from home and I miss that love of mine
Broken windows, empty doors, nobody lives here any more.
