D  G  G/F Em7 G/A

D                       G      G/F#     A
In my mind I've gone to Carolina
G                                 A            Em7                             A
Can't you see the sunshine cant you just feel the moon shining?
D                              A/C#   Bm  A   G       D/F#         E7
Ain't it just like a friend of mine to hit me from behind 
G/A          D       Bm7      Em7   G/A       D
Yes I'm going to Carol   ina     in my mind

Verse 1
D                         C                                   G                               A
Karen, she's a silver sun, you'd best walk away and watch it shining
Bm                    G                           A
Watch her watch the morning come
       G                  D/F#                Bm7   Em7       Asus4      A7
A silver tear appearing now I'm cry   ing        ain't I?
           D         Bm7  Em7     G/A   D
I've gone to Carol   ina in my mind

Verse 2
There ain't no doubt in no-ones mind that loves the finest thing around
Whisper something soft and kind
And hey baby, the sky's on fire, I'm dying, ain't I 
I've gone to Carolina in my mind


Verse 3
Dark and silent late last night I think I might have heard the highway calling
Geese in flight and dogs that bite
The signs that it might be omens say I'm going, going
I've gone to Carolina in my mind

D            G                   A                                 Bm
With a holy host of others standing around me 
F#m7                          Em7               G
Still I'm on the dark side of the moon
A             C                            G                        D                       C        G/B       Em7
And it seems like this goes on like this forever  you must forgive me
G/A                           D   Bm7    Em7    G/A    D
If I'm up and gone to Carol    ina in my mind

            D G G/F Em7  G/A D(Repeat sequence to fade)
I'm gone                    say nice things about me cause I'm gone

Repeat and fade

I've tried my best to get this as close to the recording as I can but some of the chord rundowns are a little difficult to make out.  I f you have any suggestions on how it can be improved please drop me a line at  dixhill60@hotmail.com

Hope you enjoy it

pretty right on with the chords...adding a capo at the 2nd fret will put it in the correct key of the original song.

I think the intro chord G/F is inncorrect the actual chord is G/F# which is basically the same but the 2nd fret on the E string is played instead of the 1st
