1. I miss yo' in de monin, when ole Bob White gives his call,
Caroline, Caroline, I miss yo at de sunset, when de evenin' shadows fall,
Caroline, Caroline, I miss yo' when de moonbeams out on de ribber shine,
Oh, can't yo' heah me callin' for yo', Caroline.
2. I miss yo' when de Robin is a whistlin' out his tune, Caroline, Caroline,
I miss yo' when de roses are a bloomin' all of June, Caroline, Caroline,
I miss yer hand a stealin' so trustin' like in mine,
Oh can't yo' heah me callin' for yo', Caroline.
CHORUS. Can't yo' heah me callin' Caroline,
It's mah heart a callin' dine.
Lordy, how I miss yo' gal o' mine,
Wish dat I could kiss yo' Caroline!
Aint no use now fo' de sun to shine, Caroline, Caroline,
Can't yo' heah mah lips a sayin',
Can't yo heah mah soul a prayin',
Can't yo heah me callin', Caroline.
