SWEET CAROLINE


Neil Diamond



[E]//[E7] [E]//[E7] [E]//[E7]///


[A] Where it began, [D] I can’t begin to know it,

[A] But then I know it’s going [E] strong.

[A] Was in the spring, [D] then spring became a summer,

[A] Who’d have believed you’d come a-[E]-long.

[A] Hands [F#m] touching hands,

[E] Reaching out, [D] touching me, touching [E] you [E7]

[A] Sweet Caro-[D]-line, good times never seemed so [E] good. [E7]

[A] I’ve been in-[D]-clined to believe they never [E] would [D] but [E] now [D] I


[A] I look at the night, [D] and it don’t seem so lonely,

[A] we fill it up with only [E] two.

[A] And when I hurt, [D] hurting runs off my shoulder,

[A] How can I hurt when holding [E] you. [E7]

[A] Warm, [F#m] touching warm

[E] Reaching out, [D] touching me, touching [E] you. [E7]

[A] Sweet Caro-[D]-line, good times never seemed so [E] good.

[A] I’ve been in-[D]-clined to believe they never [E] would, [D] Oh [E] no [D] no


[E]//[E7] [E]//[E7] [E]//[E7][E7]///


[A] Sweet Caro-[D]-line, good times never seemed so [E] good.

[A] I’ve been in-[D]-clined to believe they never [E] would, [E7]

[A] Sweet Caro-[D]-line, good times never seemed so [E] good.

[A] I’ve been in-[D]-clined to believe they never [E] would, [E7]

[A] Sweet Caro-[D]-line, good times never seemed so [E] good.

[A] I’ve been in-[D]-clined to believe they never [E] would, [E7]

I recommend playing this song with a capo on the 2nd fret, as follows:
