Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Well I went down to Houston and I stopped in San Antone
I passed up the station for the bus
Was trying to find me something but I wasn't sure just what
I ended up with pockets full of dust.
Verse 2
So I went on to Cleveland and ended up insane
Bought a borrowed suit and learned to dance
I was spending money like the way it likes to rain
And I ended up with pockets full of 'caine.
Verse 3
Oh my sweet Carolina
What compels me to go?
Oh my sweet disposition
May you one day carry me home.
Verse 4
I ain't never been to Vegas but I gambled up my life
Building news print boats I raced in sewer mains
I was trying to find me something but I wasn't sure just what
Funny how they say that some things never change.
Verse 5
Oh my sweet Carolina
What compels me to go?
Oh my sweet disposition
May you one day carry me home.
Verse 6
Up here in the city it feels like things are closing in
The sunset's just my light bulb burning out
I miss Kentucky and I miss my family
All the sweetest winds they blow across the south.
Verse 7
Oh my sweet Carolina
What compels me to go?
Oh my sweet disposition
May you one day carry me home
May you one day carry me home.
