Dottie West — Carolina Cousins lyrics

When I was just a young girl my mama told me hon
What country's where you've been to what country's where you're from
Now I don't wanna hurt you honey can't you see
No I'm not in the country the country's still in me
I've got Carolina cousins Carolina kin (they're waiting there)
At the gates of almost heaven they'll let me in
My Carolina cousins will smile and say hello so for now I've gotta say goodbye and go
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/dottie-west-carolina-cousins-lyrics.html ]
You found the country bluebird with a broken wing and tehn
You took her to the city and made her well again
But a hundred smilin' faces and a hundred voices call
Love you but I'm homesick so I'm leavin' after all
Cause I've got Carolina cousins...

Soon you'll get a letter to say I'll meet the bus
You'll just be there on it we'll make one of us
Someday if God's willin' you're gonna tell our son
What country's where you've been to boy what country's where you're from
And you'll have Carolina cousins...
Cause I've got Carolina cousins...
