Caroline chords – Otis Gibbs

Caroline - Otis Gibbs
Capo - 3
D A Em G
With her brother in the kitchen, breaking green beans in half
D A Em G
While her father worked in a coal mine, doing chores he'd left for them
D A Em G
I say her momma left, and took the family car, on a cold midwestern evening
D A Em G
She left everything behind, searching for , a little piece of mind
Em A7
Somewhere on the other side....
Chorus:
D F#m Bm G
Caroline, Caroline......lives her life inside a daydream
D A Em G
And she keeps it all inside, all the pain, she has to hide,
Em A7 D
All the boys would stand in line......for Caroline
D A Em G
When the daughter of a miner, loved the boy from down the road
D A Em G
At sixteen she was wedded, he was 24 years old
D A Em
Well the checks were small, and the debts were large
G
And it seemed he'd never work
D A Em G
He had a problem with the bottle, he'd get drunk, and she'd get hurt
Em A7
Lonely depressed and insecure....
D F#m Bm G
Caroline, Caroline......lives her life inside a daydream
D A Em G
And she keeps it all inside, all the pain, she has to hide,
Em A7 D
All the boys would stand in line......for Caroline
D A Em G
Living in a motel room, sleeping double across 2 beds
D A Em G
She tries not to wake the children, tangled in her long black hair
D A Em G
She dreams of leaving him, and putting him in jail, high walls and iron bars
D A Em G
She read the sins of the father, will be visited, upon the son
Em A
She lives in fear of things to come.....
D F#m Bm G
Caroline, Caroline.....lives her life inside a daydream
D A Em G
And she keeps it all inside, all the pain, she has to hide,
Em A7 D
Peace will be with you in time.....Caroline
Em A7 D
Peace will be with you in time.....Caroline
