lyrics

O Carolina, I took a fall for you. O Carolina, I know you been untrue. O Carolina, I’m doing time for you. O Carolina, you broke my heart in two. You took all the money. I took all the blame. Still my heart starts drumming at the mention of your name. O Carolina, I don’t know what I’m gonna do. O Carolina, I still love you. O Carolina, I fell into your eyes. O Carolina, I tripped up on your lies. O Carolina, you gave me walls to climb. O Carolina, you taught my soul to pine. Put me in a prison. Sold me down the line. I ain’t no stool pigeon but someday you will find. O Carolina, I dug a hole for you. O Carolina,, I still love you. Played me like a trumpet. Played me like a fool. I won’t stop running ‘till I run into you. O Carolina, I dug a hole for you. O Carolina, I still love you.

TSF has released 5 full length CDs full of songs about vikings, armadillos, old cars, murder, prison, fences, and girls. ... more
