D# G# C# F# A# D#
Tune down ½ step

C - G/B - Am  G - F

F                                C
Home is where my heart is still beating
  F                             C  G/B
I don't know when I'll see her again
   F                            C
I hate to see her cry when I'm leaving
              G                    F
But now I'm a thousand miles away again


(Chorus)
                   C
She feels like Carolina
                G/B
Looks like California
                   Am       G             F
Shining like those New York lights on Broadway
         G              C
When she looks back I'm behind her
                     G/B
I'll always be there for her
                       Am         G        F
She makes me feel like home's not so far away
      G            F
She feels like Carolina


     F                               C
It's hard to understand the way I'm living

  F                          C    G/B
I know you think I'm never coming home
                                                                      
  F                                     C
But I miss your pretty smile, and I'm coming back in a little while
          G                    F
But I'm a thousand miles away again


Chorus
                       Am        G        Bb
She makes me feel like home's not so far away
                                                                  
No matter how far I go
Dm                                  C
You know I can't stop thinking about her
            Bb
And there's nothing like the way I feel
Dm                      G
The way I feel when I'm beside her

F   G    Am G/B
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
F   G    Am   G/B  F
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh

                   C
She feels like Carolina
                G/B
Looks like California
                   Am       G             F
Shining like those New York lights on Broadway
                   C
She feels like Carolina
                G/B
Looks like California
                    Am       G             F
Shining like those New York lights on Broadway

         G                       C
When she looks back I'm behind her
                     G/B
I'll always be there for her
                       Am         G        F
She makes me feel like home's not so far away

If you watch Parmalee play the song, the singer uses a Capo on the 4th fret. Tuned @440 to match the recording I had to Capo on the 3rd fret, because they do tune down 1/2 step. It is easier to play his way for me since there are not as many flat chords.
Played as follows:

Tune down ½ step
CAPO 4th Fret

G - D/F# - Em D - C

C G
Home is where my heart is still beating
C G D/F#
I don't know when I'll see her again
C G
I hate to see her cry when I'm leaving
D C
But now I'm a thousand miles away again

(Chorus)
G
She feels like Carolina
D/F#
Looks like California
Em D C
Shining like those New York lights on Broadway
D G
When she looks back I'm behind her
D/F#
I'll always be there for her
Em D C
She makes me feel like home's not so far away
D C
She feels like Carolina
