Ramshackle Shack

There’s a ramshackle shack down in old Caroline
And it’s callin’ me back to that sweetheart of mine
Those pretty blue eyes I long to see
Down in old Caroline there I long to be

Those pretty blue eyes that sparkle with love
Sent down to me from Heaven above
And if I had wings like a beautiful dove
I’d fly away to the girl I love

When the whippoorwills call at the close of day
We would sing love songs and she would say
My love for you will never die
Then we bid farewell such a sad good-bye

When it’s harvest time down in old Caroline
I’ll be driftin’ back to that sweetheart of mine
Spend the rest of my days with the girl that I love
With the help of the Lord up in Heaven above
