Carolina Rain

Carolina rain, rain on me
Wash away my sorrow
Wash away my pain
Wash me clean, Carolina rain

I have travelled far and wide
I have been lost on the Great Divide
I have been tested, in ways unspoken
Yes I’m tired, but I am not broken

Carolina rain, rain on my
Wash away my trouble
Wash away my past,
Set me free, free at last

I’ve done my time, I’ve run my race
I seek refuge, in your Southern grace
Let your honeysuckle and long leaf pine
And golden sunlight ease my mind

Yes I have stumbled and I have fallen
And I rose when I heard you callin’
I may be tattered, a little torn
I am ready to come home

I’ve done my time, I’ve run my race
I seek refuge, in your Southern grace
Let your honeysuckle and long leaf pine
And golden sunlight ease my mind

Carolina rain, rain on me
Wash away my sorrow
Wash away my pain
Wash me clean, Carolina rain
