Well I met an old money
Whose mouth was made of trash
He liked to travel
But he don't carry cash
It was five bones a day
That's the price that he paid
And I made sure as hell
He was dead to me

And he had a girl
Named Caroline Pearl
And she was soft and sweet
And she was made of salt
But that wasn't her fault
And her hands were soft
Like slavery

She said
Pay me my pills
That'll pay me my bills
Or at least help me sleep
Through the night
And no straight line
Oh Miss Caroline
She'll die
Or she'll be my wife

Now she was
Heavy up top
That show's she's
Sweet in the teet
I was showing my teeth
That show's she
Sweet the meat
And I struck the good book
With a double-edged sword
God sent my mother
I don't fight God no more
And it was
Full steam ahead
Land ho, is that
Tennesee?
Saw myself hang myself
Up in the family tree
Gotta understand
This wasn't part of the plan
You work a good job
And I work the land

Oh
Pay me my pills
That'll pay me my bills
Or at least help me sleep
Through the night
And no straight line
Oh Miss Caroline
She'll die
Or she'll be my wife
Caroline
Caroline
Caroline
Caroline
Oh I muscled away for your love
I told the devil I'd hang for your love
I, I broke the chain
I broke the brain
I did it all for your love
Caroline
Caroline
Caroline
Caroline
Caroline
Caroline
Caroline
Caroline
