  • Caroline my baby
    Caroline my sweet
    If I married caroline
    So happy I would be

    I wouldn't need no whiskey
    I wouldn't need no wine
    Wouldn't need much of anything
    If caroline was mine

    Her daddy is a preacher
    And may he rot in hell
    I'd sell my soul to satan for
    A bucket from your well

    I know that he don't like me
    I know he'll disapprove
    But I'm gonna marry caroline
    If it's the last thing that I do

    If I was a painter
    I'd put you down in paint
    I'd hang you by the mona lisa
    And put that girl to shame

    Or if I was a sailor
    And I sailed the seven seas
    I'd row across the ocean
    Just to bring you home with me

    Oh caroline my baby
    Oh caroline my sweet
    You make a man go crazy
    Why won't you come to me

    'cause I've been feeling lonesome
    And feeling kinda blue
    I think I'd rather die
    Than to be away from you

    But she said boy
    You know you've caught my eye
    And I know you're sweeter than
    Apple pie
    But I like my man completely wild
    So baby keep on trying

    Caroline my baby
    Caroline my sweet
    I'm gonna marry caroline Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
