Ever since we took that midnight drive
Down to see the water in the full moon sky
And I told you I loved you on the blue creek road
Well I was full on fallin' for my Carolina Rose

Spent the next four years just singing my songs
With Rosie in the front row singing along
Till I got that call, had to hit that road
Man, how am I gonna leave my Carolina Rose

Yeah the big time is everything I ever wanted
But the spotlight can’t hold a candle to you
Standing up here on this stage, they all say “man, you got it made”
They don’t know, it don’t mean a thing without my Carolina Rose

Met a California girl on a west coast run
She sparkled like a diamond in the setting sun
They called me crazy when I let her go
I just couldn’t stop thinking about my Carolina Rose

Well the big time is everything I ever wanted
But the spotlight can’t hold a candle to you
Standing up here on this stage
They all say, “man, you got it made”
They don’t know, it don’t mean a thing without my Carolina Rose

I’ve been halfway around the world just to come back to you
I hope I ain’t too late
And I hope that you’re still thinking about me too

'Cause now I’m back here standing on your front porch
It’s been five years baby, but it feels like more
Well let me drive you down that blue creek road
I got something to say to my Carolina Rose

Well the big time was everything I ever wanted
But the spotlight can’t hold a candle to you
Standing up there on that stage, it might look like I got it made
But my heart knows, it don’t mean a thing without my Carolina Rose

No it don’t mean a thing without my Carolina Rose
It don’t mean a thing without my Carolina Rose
