Sewee, sewee, sewee

We traveled far on this road we're on
From the great plains
Through the tall, blue grasses of the lone range

Cool green Caroline
You made my bread and wine
I held your hand in mine

Sewee, sewee, sewee

From a rocky stand
I watched your bare feet runnin' over salty land
When the light grew dim
I said, "Now it's time for you to come in"

Cool green Caroline
You made my bread and wine
I held your hand in mine

Sewee, sewee, sewee
Sewee, sewee, sewee

    Song MeaningFrom the Mountain Man website:

    "Sewee Sewee happened to Alex in her sleep, at least some of it. She woke up in the middle of the night thinking she had written the perfect song, but all she could remember in the morning was, 'sewee sewee, we traveled far on this road we’re on.'"

    General CommentSurely this is about the Sewee Native American tribe that lived in South Carolina in the 1600s? Hence "cool green caroline"?
