I usually play this in D -- some folks capo on 3rd fret but I think the original is not.

If I'm up and gone to Carolina in my mind...

 

...'Cause I've only been to Carolina a few times. North & South. ;)

 

I love playing James Taylor songs and this one's been in my repetoire for about 25 years. I also play this one in D, but I can't remember the original key. I'm a baritone, so some JT in the original keys pushes the limits of my full voice range. :eek:

It's easiest to find me on Facebook. Neil Bergman

Thanks for making that distinction, Neil.

 

Some people just don't get it. :rolleyes:

A silver tear appearing now Im cryin

Maybe just like a friend of mine

It hit me from behind

Dark and silent last night

I think I might have heard the highway calling

Geese in flight and dogs that bite

Signs that might be omens say I going, going

Im goin to carolina in my mind

 

With a holy host of others standing round me

Still Im on the dark side of the moon

And it seems like it goes on like this forever

You must forgive me

If Im up and gone to carolina in my mind

 

In my mind Im goin to carolina

Cant you see the sunshine

Cant you just feel the moonshine

Maybe just like a friend of mine

It hit me from behind

Yes Im goin to carolina in my mind

Well, his first success was on Apple Records. But it was Peter Asher who brought him in.

That's right. :)

JT was the first non-Beatle artist signed by Apple. James Taylor was recorded at Trident Studios, produced by Peter Asher (Sir Paul had gone out with Peter's sister Jane).

Yup, 10 points. I figure that'll buy us 10 beers! Mr. Wewus I'm going to share that with you! The next time I'm in Charlotte, I'm going to call you and I hope you'll be thirsty! :P
