Sweet Caroline

download

(Diamond)

 

Information:

Neil Diamond wrote and first recorded Sweet Caroline (Uni 55136) in 1969. His recording reached #4 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart and became a million-seller. Anthony Armstrong Jones (Chart 5100) in 1970 and Bobby Womack (United Artists 50946) in 1972 also had hits with the song.

 

Elvis sang Sweet Caroline in concert on several occasions. One performance in August 1970 at the International Hotel em Las Vegas was used in the documentary Elvis - That's the Way It Is.

 

Lyrics:


Where it began, I can't begin to know when

But then I know it's growing strong
Oh, wasn't in the spring and spring became the summer
Who'd believe you'd come along

Hands, touching hands, reaching out touching me, touching you
Oh, sweet Caroline

Good times never seemed so good
Oh, I've been inclined to believe it never would

And now I, I look at the night and it don't seem so lonely
We fill it up with only two, oh
And when I hurt, hurting runs off my shoulder
How can I hurt when holding you

Oh, one, touching one, reaching out touching me, touching you
Oh, sweet Caroline
Good times never seem so good
Oh, I've been inclined to believe it never would

Oh, sweet Caroline, good times never seem so good
