Verse 1
C F C
I went down to Houston and I stopped in San Antone
C G
I passed up the station for the bus
F C Am F
Was trying to find me something but I wasn't sure just what
C G C
Man I ended up with pockets full of dust

Verse 2 (same chords):
So I went on to Cleveland and I ended up insane
Bought a borrowed suit and learned to dance
I was spendin' money like the way it likes to rain
Man I ended up with pockets full of cane

Chorus:
Am F C Am F G
Oh my swe-eet Carolina, what compels me to go
Am F C Am G F
Oh my swe-eet disposition, may you one day carry me home

(repeat intro)
Verse 3:
I ain't never been to Vegas but I gambled up my life
Building newsprint boats I raced to sewer mains
Trying to find me something but I wasn't sure just what
Funny how they say that some things never change

(repeat chorus)

(piano break)
Am F C G x3
C C/B Am G F

Verse 4:
Up here in the city, it feels like things are closin' 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

(repeat chorus)
Am G C F
May you one day carry me ho____me.
Am G C F
Am G C
