[Chorus]

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

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]

D                         C                                   G                               A
There ain't no doubt in no-ones mind that loves the finest thing around
Bm                    G                           A
Whisper something soft and kind
       G                  D/F#                Bm7   Em7       Asus4      A7
And hey baby, the sky's on fire, I'm dying, ain't I 
           D         Bm7  Em7     G/A   D
I've gone to Carolina in my mind


[Chorus]

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 3]

D                         C                                   G                               A
Dark and silent late last night I think I might have heard the highway calling
Bm                    G                           A
Geese in flight and dogs that bite
       G                  D/F#                Bm7   Em7       Asus4      A7
The signs that it might be omens say I'm going, going
           D         Bm7  Em7     G/A   D
I've gone to Carolina in my mind


[Bridge]

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


[Chorus]

            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
G/F#
