Carolina (I Remember You)
Written by Charlie Daniels, John Crain, William DiGregorio,
           Fred Edwards, Charles Hayward & James Marshall
Recorded by Charlie Daniels
Album: Full Moon (1984)

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 south, I remember you as home
