Cold In Carolina

Is it cold in Carolina?
The roads’ been closed for snow
Because I don’t have a better lie
For why I just can’t go
Does the wind howl through the chimney
Throwing ash all o’er the floor
Or have you got that mended
Since you care for me no more

Is it cold in Carolina?
The roads’ been closed for snow
Because I don’t have a better lie
For why I just can’t go

Does the red bird sit at the window
A cardinal without a choir
He sings such a soft, sweet melody
But there’s no one to inspire
Does the sun set early on the mountain
The days just fade so fast
Maybe tomorrow I’ll look to see
How much time has passed

Is it cold in Carolina?
The roads’ been closed for snow
Because I don’t have a better lie
For why I just can’t go

Does the night echo with silence
That deafens the lonely ear
Won’t you just come down from that mountain
And live with me down here
Don’t you wonder about me at all
Struggling over near Knoxville?
Have you thought of crossing that mountain
I know you love me still

Is it cold in Carolina?
The roads’ been closed for snow
Because I don’t have a better lie
For why I just can’t go
