They say you were born in St. Claire’s hospital 
G                             D
I say you were born up in the sky 
You come floatin’ down over New Orleans 
       G                                 D
To the sweet green levee on the riverside 
And your voice chirped like old squeaky shoes 
And momma always said we had nothing to lose 
D         A                       G
And so we danced on the street corner 

   D    G
Oh Caroline (Caroline)
G                                  D
Heartbroken hard times, they never got us down 
G                             D            Bm     
Walkin’ the same line through every single southern town 
Hand in hand your arm ‘round mine 
       G  D
Oh Caroline
   D    G
Oh Caroline (Caroline) 
  G                            D
I seen it all change, watch it change some more 
G                        D                  Bm
Seen hard times standin’ right outside your door 
Tell me girl what’s on your mind 
   G    D
Oh Caroline

We were the Cardinal’s biggest fans 
Turnin’ flips like Ozzy Smith all through the night 
‘Til we got traded away 
To the Red Clay Southern League up on the Georgia line 
You could be the pitcher and the catcher too 
I’m the home run king before his muscles grew 
Gonna knock the cover off this town 


These are different days 
And the pace of the world has us thinking there’s 
No time to turn the other way 
Take my hand and we’ll walk on down the line 
Though we may be a thousand miles apart 
A brother and a sister have a single heart 
And the beat don’t stop for nothin’.

Perfect chords. There are two versions of the song, the other version has slightly different lyrics though

the fifth line is: and your voice shined like your sunday shoes

third line of the chorus:walking the same line through every shady southern town

fifth line of chorus: Oh caroline, you'll do just fine

after that line the chorus ends.

2nd verse:
we were the gas house gang
i'll be ozzie smith, you be sara my wife
till we got traded away
to the red clay league somewhere along the georga line
you be the pitcher and the catcher too
im the homerun king 'fore his muscles grew
gonna knock the cover off this time

3rd verse:
well i called you the other day
it sounded like you'd been up all night crying
i used to wonder if we had really run away when they discovered what we were hiding
well there aint no way we could be so free as we were back in '83
so whats the use of even trying

last chorus:
oh caroline
seen it all change and watch it change some more
seen hard times standing right outside your door
but i'd say you'll do just fine, you'll do just fine
oh caroline

Lack of accuracy. this tab doe not sound like the right key. few other notes are just wrong progression. good tab to an extent though I guess
