Spanish moss is still in the heat of a carolina moon
Dogs barking in the night, a lonely lady
Slowly trails a broom
Her man is gone and the grass
Well it ain't been mowed for days
When did those years full of song play out
Wet is the color of her face
Color of her face

In the bitter sweet night in the low hill country
She remembers that antebellum square
Dolly gets in bed, pulls the ribbon from her head,
And cries to a husband that ain't there

And that carolina moon is the only light she has known
As the creeping years consumed her dreams and all that she called home

The carolina moon is the only light she has known
As the creeping years consumed her dreams and all that she called home

Under a carolina moon

Dolly found her man in a time of trouble and the future looked so bright
But the loneliness is the only thing left in her carolina night

Hattie calls on saturday
She mentions church but dolly doesn't say
Too many calendars have gone their way
Since this little lady thought to pray
Somehow tonight she gotta feel the light
To know the One who can make things right

And that carolina moon is the only light she has known
As the creeping years consumed her dreams and all that she called home

The carolina moon is the only light she has known
As the creeping years consumed her dreams and all that she called home
There's a Sun who calls her home carolina moon

Carolina moon
