Another little ditty.

Carolina Girl

©2012 Robert Randall Burke


She is cool water on a hot summer day
Warm breezes where the palm trees sway
Big brown eyes that take my breath away
She's my Carolina Girl.

She's a sun risin' in a mountain sky
Sandy beaches where the sea birds fly
Her sweet voice could make the angels cry
She's my Carolina Girl.

Carolina, Carolina
A little bit of heaven in this world
You have blessed me with
A Carolina Girl.

She is Sunday morning when the church bells ring
The sweetest song that I'll ever sing
And I'll be givin' this wedding ring
To my Carolina Girl.


Carolina, Carolina
A little bit of heaven in this world
You have blessed me with
A Carolina.....
The greatest gift
A Carolina.....
Blessed me with
A Carolina Girl.

Bob,

ANOTHER great song! Beautiful lyric ("Her sweet voice could make the angels cry"). Beautiful melody. Beautiful production and mix.

But.... this one just CRIES for some sweet harmonies in that beautiful chorus!!

Loved it.

Hey Bob.

Every time you post a new song you raise that bar a bit higher.

Sounds to me like a song that James Taylor could have written. Like Floyd said, beautiful lyrics and melody with a mix that's straight off country radio.

But the best thing has to be your performance of it - so confident, yet relaxed and full of expression.

I go with Floyd again on the harmonies, but it's still a fantastic song.

ROG.

OMG! Bob you have absolutely stolen my heart with this song. I am totally smitten with it. I want to hear it over and over.

It's so romantic....what a woman loves to hear. Fabulous lyrics. The tune is so pretty. It's just beautifully done and sung. Yeah I could hear some sweet harmonies in there but as is it packs a whallop....

Did I mention I love it...LOL!

WOW. Top drawer.

Great stuff Bob. Nice flow, tells your story.....

But shouldn't it be about a Florida girl?

As they say in the Southern Province of Oklahoma: "Awesome, Possum!" Very enjoyable throughout.

More please?

Hi Bob,

This is so much more than "another little ditty". I thoroughly enjoyed listening. I've got to hand it to you, everything about this is great - music, lyrics, arrangement, mix, performance. I've also got to say that, to my ears, the lyric development is incredibly strong and with each section, I could feel the emotional intensity of the song climb up a notch or two.

This is text book worthy "excellent work"!

Regards,
Noel

Very nice. I agree, very James Taylor like. One of the songs I like playing just with my guitar is James Taylor’s Carolina on my mind . This reminds me of that song.
Well done!

I knew a girl like that! Couldn't a pass her by so just had to marry her! 46 years - and counting! ( I was a Child Bride!! lol !)
Great song, Bob. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing.
Harmonies in the chorus? Why yes, they'd be a cool addition but there are lines in the verses that would be superb with Floyd styles harmonies at the end of some lines too.
Excellent production.
Enjoyed it so much.
IAn
