Lyrics

Please don't weep for Caroline
Send a letter home
Just as soon as you can find the time
Be it gold, be it gold
Or a hammer that you hold
May the story stay untold
Her body's grown to eager to be known

Weep Caroline

Sign your name with no regret
Not every letter home
Needs to hold the truth, but all get read
Be in ink or be in blood
Of harvest or of flood
When a tree outgrows the wood
It's branches shed their leaves to kiss the mud

Weep Caroline

She traced a crack in the mirror
And no comb could touch her hair
Just studies dust in the air
And this father's head hangs down

Please don't weep for Caroline
Send a letter home
Just as soon as you can find the time
When it's done, when it's done
And a ribbon wraps the sun
Will she curse what she has won
Or let your memory burn until it's gone
