Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
As of now, May 2016, I don't believe there's an album version of this song. My favorite recording, and the one
I used to write the lyrics is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jE7VYaWSeIA
It's a nice mix of strumming and fingerpicking. You'll have to listen a few times to get a hang of the rhythm
and what you want to do with it. Just chords sounds nice too. It's a beautiful song; hope you enjoy!

Update: In April 2017 "Carolina" was released on the album, "Turn Your Face to the Sun".
That version has capo on the 6th fret.  I've also made some corrections to the lyrics.

G D C D Em Am C G C G C


[Verse]

Am                  C                                        Em
Headed South to Asheville town, we stumble down the mountain singing
Am            C                           G C G C
Oh, don't you remember the Lonesome River Band.
       Em       C                       G               D         Am
No way back to Winston-Salem, Engine Failing, You were playing a song
         C                            G
I didn't remember and I couldn't understand.


C G                   C                       D        Em
  And just before the chorus Nantahala Forest pine and promise
Am     Em     Am            G C
Oh now please don't let me down.
Am                      C                               D          Em
Well you were bound for Johnson City, sounds so pretty, here's the pity:
Am                 C                      G C G
Oh, I didn't understand, I'm only hearing now.


[Chorus]

         Em                       C
You said Carolina I'm inclined to leave you and never come back
G                        C
Carolina I'm inclined to go
Em                        C               Em
Carolina take the time to know me cause I never knew you
G                            C
Know me, whatever is left to know


[Verse]

G C D Am Em C G C
C         D       C                    D                      Em
Searching for the lost horizon seeping through the blue ridge rising
Am              C                        G C G C
Oh, don't you remember, we didn't get too far.
Am                C                                       D
Past the night in restless dreaming, I never guessed that you were leaving
Am             C                               G C
Oh, tellin' me the future on a little Swiss guitar.


G    D          C                        D
Just before the chorus Nantahala Forest, pine and promise,
Am      Em     Am            G
Oh now, please play one more time.

Em       G             C       G  Em
Carolina take the time to know me cause I never knew you
