Hey everybody, this is my homage to James Taylor.  
I always look tabs up here and out of respect to the 
community here for helping me learn so much, I 
thought I'd contribute one for a change!  I think 
I've more or less nailed the song the way he does it, 
basically you need to emphasize the bass melodies.  
Of course there is an amazing descending bass line in 
the chorus.  The third verse has one chord variation/substituion 
that is a bit tricky at first (a chord for every eighth note) but if 
you spend a little time on it you can get it easily.  The bridge 
has a couple weird chords at the very end that I've tabbed 
out at the bottom.  

Also, almost everywhere that you see A Asus2, or D Dsus2, 
he's doing this little hammer/pull thing with the chord.  That 
one you can do by feel/style, etc, the other tabs will show you 
that more specifically as well.  He plays it with his fingers, I play 
it with a pick, it's really up to you.  It's capo on 2nd fret, although 
I've seen him play it with capo on the 3rd fret, and I prefer that
sound so that's how I do it.  Please note that the chords are relative
 to the capo (i.e. they relate to the chord's SHAPE, and not what it 
would actually be, say, on a piano, bass, etc.)  Transpose it up 3 frets 
if you want the 'real' chord names! Trying to denote bars the best I 
can.  If you have questions/comments, please get in touch and like

Ain't it just like a friend of mine

  | G         G/F#             E       A   |  
To hit me from behind

       |  D          G    Em   A    |    D    Dsus2   |
Til I'm goin' to Carolina in my mind

  Karen she's a silver sun

            |  G                        A  Asus2         |

Verse:
There ain't no doubt in no one's mind
That love's the finest thing around
Whisper something soft and kind
And hey babe the sky's on fire, I'm dyin'
Ain't I goin' to Carolina in my mind

Chorus:
In my mind I'm goin' to Carolina
Can't you see the sunshine
Can't you just feel the moonshine
Ain't it just like a friend of mine
To hit me from behind
Yes I'm goin' to Carolina in my mind


Verse 3 (with chord substitution):
| D                       C9                  |
   Dark and silent late last night

           | G       A    Em7/B  G   A  Asus4  A#dim7*  A#dim7  |
I think I might have heard the highway calling

 |  Bm                 G       |   etc......
             Geese in flight and dogs that bite
Signs that might be omens say I'm going, going
I'm goin' to Carolina in my mind


Bridge:
| G                               A                   |  Bm             |       
     With a holy host of others standing 'round me

| F#m                 Em    (F#**)      | G          A  Asus2  |
   Still I'm on the dark side of the moon

        | Cadd9                  G                    |   D    Dsus2   |
And it seems like it goes on like this forever

                  | Cadd9       Em7/B   |
You must forgive me

|   ***         ***    |  D        G     Em   A      | D    D sus2  |
         If I'm up and goin' to Carolina in my mind

Chorus:
In my mind I'm goin' to Carolina
Can't you see the sunshine
Can't you just feel the moonshine
Ain't it just like a friend of mine
To hit me from behind
          | D         G     Em   A     | D   D/C#   D/B   D/A  |
Yes I'm goin' to Carolina in my mind

  | G         G/F#             E       A   |   D   D/C#   D/B   D/A  |  etc......
  Ab-lib vocal, etc....



*you need to play the high E string the first time you play A#dim7 
and mute the high E string the second time you play it 

**bass-walk (not the full chord)

***not sure what to call this thing, but he does it, it's a three chord thing
