LYRICS:

Lost too long in the California sunshine – longin’ for the shelter of my Carolina home
Never found peace in the blue Pacific – Carolina’s callin’ – now I’m headin’ home alone

Gotta hitch a ride, Lord, I’m bound to be there
West coast blues – I’ve been gone too long
Say so long – California sunset – headin’ for the Carolina dawn

Desert sun runnin’ to the blue horizon – crystal skies blazin’ just as far as I can see
Radiator steamin’ all the way to Flagstaff – cactus sun blisterin’ – is she thinkin’ of me

Hundred mile ride on an 18-wheeler
Back to ridin’ rails that go on and on
Say so long – Arizona sunset – headin’ for the Carolina dawn

Amarillo rest stop – Oklahoma City
Great Plains crossin’ to my country home
Say so long Oklahoma sunset – headin’ for the Carolina dawn

Mississippi cross into blue grass country – makin’ tracks from Memphis & we’re on our way
Dreamin’ of the girl with her green eyes smilin’ – thousand miles ridin’ on the long highway

Blue Ridge Mountains – risin in the distance
Nashville playin’ like a Country song
Say so long – Tennessee sunset – headin’ for the Carolina dawn

Outer Banks sparkle on the far horizon – great Atlantic stretchin’ just as far as I can see
Hatteras light beam streamin’ through the heavens – wonderin’ is she really even thinkin’ of me

Suddenly I see her – wavin’ from the front porch
Green eyes smilin’ in the Carolina sun

Say hello – Carolina sunrise – welcome to the Carolina dawn
Say hello – Carolina sunrise – welcome to the Carolina dawn
