Carolina Rua (the Crooked Road) appears on Mary Black's "No Frontiers" album, with a rather carribean-sounding arrangement. The arrangement shown here is songwriter Thom Moore's own original version, as found on his "Dreamer in Russia" CD.


Carolina Rua 
(The Crooked Road)

Stories never end 
till you come to conclusions:
Carolina Rua has a hand in my confusion.
She waits for me to choose 
which quarter to bend in,
to Susie-Make-Me-Blue, 
or the redhead I’m attending.

Now, Carolina Rua has my heart 
and all I want to do’s
go down the windy road, 
where my Carolina goes;
down the crooked road, 
where Carolina goes to school,
Mo Charolina rua, do you love me? 
Tell me true, tell me.

Standing on three queens, 
I thought the game was over;
then, from the blue, Carolina’s at my shoulder.

Laughter in her eyes, 
and a smile that touches all the guys
on down the windy road, 
where my Carolina goes;
down the crooked road, 
where Carolina goes to school,
Mo Charolina rua, do you love me? 
Tell me true, tell me.
