Carolina Sunshine Girl

Posted by | March 26, 2007


Moon moon I can see you smilin’ low
You made me think of a sweetheart
A little girl that I loved so
After I’ve wondered the whole night through
Wonderin’ if you think of me
While I’m on my lonesome thinkin’ of someone
I’m thinkin’ only of you

My Carolina sunshine girl
You have turned my heart to stone
My Carolina sunshine Girl
You have left me all alone

I wonder why I sit and cry
When I really should laugh
At your little old photograph
For you’re the sweetest angel in this world

And I love love love you
My Carolina sunshine girl

—credited with creating the ensemble, and the sound, that we have all come to know as bluegrass music. The term for bluegrass music derives from his band, assembled during the 1940’s, “Bill Monroe and the Blue Grass Boys”, which was named in honor of his home state of Kentucky, “where the bluegrass grows.”
