The "Sweet Caroline" that the song refers to is Caroline Kennedy, daughter of John F Kennedy...
Where it began, I can't begin to knowing
But then I know it's growing strong
Was in the spring
And spring became the summer
Who'd have believed you'd come along

Hands, touching hands
Reaching out, touching me, touching you

Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
I'd be inclined
To believe they never would
But now I

Look at the night and it don't seem so lonely
We filled it up with only two
And when I hurt
Hurting runs off my shoulders
How can I hurt when I'm holding you

One, touching one
Reaching out, touching me, touching you

Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
I'd be inclined
To believe they never would
Oh no, no

Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
Sweet Caroline
I believe they never could
Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good

    General CommentThe chorus of this song brings back good memories... "Hands, touchin' hands, reachin' out, touchin' me, touchin' you". They don't throw those '70s parties anymore; where thirty or so people drop their clothes and pick up their drugs at the entrance.
    I wonder. Did Neil Diamond attend the same parties? I can't recall, it was always semi-dark.
