"Carolina" as written by and Joanna/burgess Cotten....
Down in Tennessee
Sits a girl alone
She sings along with her favorite songs on the radio

Only friends she sees
Are on TV
Magazine and movie stars are her only family
Yeah they're all she needs

Carolina's so
Happy on the outside
She keeps frowning inside

In the Nashville sky
Shines a diamond bright
Carolina says it's for the boys after midnight
She drifts off to sleep
And in her dreams
She lives in California in a mansion by the sea
Yeah that's who she could be

Carolina's so
Happy on the outside
She keeps frowning inside

Carolina's so
Happy on the outside
She keeps frowning inside

And then she wakes to find out
Her dream is real (It's real)
It's real (It's real)
It's real (It's real)
It's real

Carolina's so
Happy on the outside
And now she's smiling inside

Smiling inside (Inside)
Smiling inside (Inside)
Smiling inside (Inside)
Smiling inside
