Love this song; but ever since I've gotten here, I've been leaving Carolina in my mind.
This man is off his rocker.
Being a Jersey shore guy, was my second CD... Always loved his voice and this song. Never thought I would be living in Carolina for 20 years now..... its funny how life plays out....

Gone to Carolina in my mind....J T 's the best!
I have gone to many places in my mind never to Carolina. Good song anyway
Never been there sure seems i've been there but in my mind!
Love this music love u James Taylor. Brings so many memories back.
I love you Mike black in Moline
JT just had one of those voices that melts me.
James, you are one of the great singer/song writers of all time!
I grew up listening to James Taylor his art is a dying one , his music makes me cry in a good way , brings back so many emotional memories good and bad , dancing and singing with my mother and the nights when I cried myself to sleep thinking my life was so bad but now that I'm older I wouldn't change a thing it's made me all of who I am inside . Life is what you make it to be I've realized your only as happy as you want to be thanks to James ! Your a true artist and I wish the rest of the world
Reminds me of some what better times.
Great son of our soil who plays the best soft rock music from my neck of the woods..
James Taylor has such a nice voice!! He calms me when I'm feeling tense. Love it!!!❌❤❌❤

JT - sounds as good today (without hair) as he did in '72 when he had a headfull!
My oldest son always played this song on our way to Topsail Island...my kids had such good times.
It's a feel-good song that brings a tear . . . remembering the times, and wishing I'd made more of them . . .

This has always been one of my fave JT songs. He played at my college around 1974 (yikes!) and put on a fantastic solo show. He had backup singers recorded on a big old reel-to-reel tape recorder which he operated with a footswitch while he performed. One of the best shows I've ever been to.
JT truly does transcend genres and ideas of "cool". A friend of mine who is a strong and proud black woman told me that she and her cousin used to hang out together after school and sing along with James Taylor songs. THAT's cool. :=)

Haven't listened to a James Taylor song yet that didn't make me feel like all was right with the world due to his wonderful, smooth voice and touching lyrics. A true showman and master storyteller. . . . .

Mr mud slide slim allways puts me right!

WHERE ARE THE LYRICS
Maybe Carolina is the name of a girl?
funny I never go to Carolina in my mind. Take me back to massachusett s . . . .
This for you Leona
He just speaks to me, his lyrics are so thoughtfull and full of emotion. can't go wrong on an easy afternoon kicking back with a little JT.

This song brings back a lot of memories...f i r s t concert I ever saw...James Taylor at the Cleveland Public Audi...along with the James Gang and The Who...for like twelve bucks or so....
dlambarr
...perfect song because my daughter just moved there plus i really like jt
songs.
A song that is always welcome in my mind.

It's tough to pick a favorite JT song (there are just too many great ones!), but this one would definitely be in my top 5!
takes me back to a simpler place, i was so young and so full of promise, thanks james taylor for taking me back....
oh my.....what memories....
good music

It's "Carolina in my mind", not "...on my mind".

alison krauss does this song and boy did she nail it. James should be proud.
This is one of my favorite songs that he has done. I'd love to play the background piano parts with him!

The bass gives just the right accents on the rhythm and the vocal harmonies are great too. It sounds like he does the overdubbing himself...si n g i n g with himself over and over. Nice touch.
I did that on one of the pieces that I wrote.

Taylor,JT has transcended the folk,pop music industry. Lyrically he is superb and malodically ,there is no comparison. I grew up listening to him and know at 56 years old still feel his music is as refreshing and entertaining as ever.I hope he continues to tour .I have seen his cocerts in various parts of the country and I hope he continues to write and perform and record. Thanks JT Chris L.
I grew up on James Taylor through High School in the 70's and still after. The style of Taylors music is a part of the American Music culture, and rounds us out for a full range on music interest. Listen for a while, and Taylor too, will grow on you. Just hear what he is saying and understand life.
