Carolina in the Morning

“The Prodigal finds romantic love…

“This song came together as a result of Courtney Hodges in my Life… It expresses exactly how I felt and still feel about her…  I am so grateful for her… We thought we would marry but unexplainably, we just couldn’t come together after trying for a few years… Maybe we still will?  I surrender to God/Life and relinquish control of all… It is best not to resist…  Life teaches…and this includes times of sheer happiness as well as points of despair… This is a high point in my Life! I was almost bedbound for 40 days because of the emotional impact of this relationship…a physical result of suppressed feelings… Her backing vocals on so many tracks are breathtaking… I have never worked with such a gifted backing vocal talent… Her gift for harmony is mindboggling as witnessed by all engineers, musicians and listeners when this project was being created and mixed…. She should be on thousands of records…”


Carolina in the Morning
Never met a finer woman in my Life
I’m gonna make her my wife
 
Carolina greets the sunrise
In the pines or by the sea tides
It’s heaven where she goes
 
Carolina nothing finer
Than to wake up there beside her
I’ll never let her go
 
Carolina in the Morning
Never met a finer woman in my Life
I’m gotta make her my wife
 
Gonna maker her mine
Gonna show her how to spend her time
She’s the kind a girl, you’ve got to know
 
Carolina in the Morning

Carolina in the Morning
Never met a finer woman in my Life
I’m gonna make her my wife
I’m gotta make her my wife
I’m gonna make her my Life…
