Carolina (I Remember You) Lyrics - The Charlie Daniels Band

Review The Song (4)

The first things I remember are frosty Carolina mornings with a cheery fire
crackling in my mommas big black wood cook stove

I remember snow flakes as big as goose feathers and the moon the color of new
made country butter and a night sky like diamonds against black velvet reaching
from horizon to horizon

I remember when the biggest problems in my barefoot life were sand spurs and
red ant hills

I remember sitting with my grand daddy on the front porch and watching the last
of that magnificent southern sun bleed away into the twilight sky

I remember sunday school and kneeling at the cross and trying to imagine what
God looked like sunday dinner short pants hair cuts and a little puppy my
daddy brought home to me and I remember love

I remember steam puffing fire breathing awesome 10 wheel locomotives and the
conductors watch looked as big as one of my grand mothers biscuits

I remember my mother smiling in a red and white cherckered dress and christmas
always seemed so far away yes I remember you Carolina grand old lady if the
sponsored links
I remember you as home

One of the memories that stays on my mind
about an old southern lady that I left behind
is a ramshackle bridge where the deep river winds
and an old two-lane blacktop through the tall long-leaf pines

Carolina, Carolina
You're hard but you're hard to forget

I still remember the magnolia nights
and goosefeather snow flakes in the gray morning light
sandspurs and puppies and red autumn leaves
and the warm lights in the clear night on a cold Christmas Eve

Carolina, Carolina
You're hard but you're hard to forget

Carolina I knew you
before the highways got to you
and I loved you as one of your own
and I still do

Carolina, Carolina
You're hard but you're hard to forget
You're hard To Forget

A song for all times | Reviewer: John Clise | 5/1/2008

CDB's "Carolina, I Remember You," brings together all of th elements of a really good song. Poetry, emotion, memories, nostalgia, and beauty in the spoken word. It captures the south in a way folks who haven't been there can see and brings it home to us southerners. Actually, it makes us soutehrners now living away want to get in our cars and immediately drive home. Charlie Daniles hits a real high note with every word of this song. Its grace and beauty are wonderful.

This is one of the best songs CDB ever made. For those of us From The Great State of NC it really sums it up. I grew up just down the street from CD's mom and even cut her grass as a kid. This Man is not only musically talented but a great man as well. This song really sums up my years growing up in Leland and Wilmington NC.

GREAT SONG FULL OF GREAT FEELINGS | Reviewer: Lucy Arroyo | 5/22/2007

I remember the first time I listened to this song... it was in 1982, and I was 15. I cannot describe the feelin that the melody broght to me, it was like a combination between melancholia and happines. I donĀ“t know much about this band and its leading singer -Charlie Daniels-, but I just want to say that this song means a lot to me for what it makes me feel. The words of the singer, at the beginning of the song" are very impressive... I love this song.
