    Carolina Waits

    [Verse 1]
    He sat there on his tractor starin' at that old gray weathered barn
    Every year it keeps on gettin' harder to make a livin' on this farm
    The drought was unforgiving, burned all his crops up in the ground
    He could use a little extra work, but he'll have to leave this town

    [Verse 2]
    In the West Virginia coal mines, found some work that he could do
    He's always had a strong back and a knack for usin' tools
    He's leavin' in the mornin', headed for those dusty hills
    But he'll be comin' home in the spring to plant the new crops in the field

    [Chorus]
    Hе left a lot of memories in thе foothills back at home
    And he left behind the only true love his heart had ever known
    When he leaves West Virginia, he'll be goin' home to stay
    Nestled in the Carolina foothills, Carolina waits

    [Verse 3]
    Diggin' coal ain't easy, but he was always there on time
    They all made him feel right at home; everyone was so kind
    He made enough to pay the bills, put some back along the way
    And tonight when his last shift is done, he's headin' home to stay

    [Verse 4]
    The late news broke the story: no one made it out in time
    All his dreams of goin' home were laid bare in that West Virginia mine
    The southbound train is rollin', takin' him back home to stay
    To those hills in the Carolina foothills where Carolina waits

    [Chorus]
    He left a lot of memories in the foothills back at home
    And he left behind the only true love his heart had ever known
    When he leaves West Virginia, he'll be goin' home to stay
    Nestled in the Carolina foothills, Carolina waits
    Nestled in the Carolina foothills, Carolina waits
