It's Sunday Down In Carolina

(Jerry Livingston / Marty Symes / Al Neiburg)

Ray Noble and His Orchestra

The lazy sun is shining and my heart's at ease
I can hear sweet music in the morning breeze
Folks can stay in bed 'till anytime they please;
'Cause it's Sunday down in Caroline.

Now there's four and twenty hours set aside for play
And the cotton is forgotten down good old Dixie way
And heaven comes a calling every seventh day
'Cause it's Sunday down in Caroline

Church bells will be ringing Hallelujah
Hallelujah, come and pray

Darkies will be singing so peculiar
Singing their sins away

Love don't have to wait until the evening time
There's no work to keep me from that gal of mine
And I'll be off to meet her when the church bells chime
It's Sunday down in Caroline

Oh! folks, it's wonderful to be in Caroline on Sunday
So peaceful. So lovely
