Lyrics
I am a boy from the high country
And I got a lil love for the offering
I come down from the mountains, bow to the sea
In Carolina Low I will carry thee

Gonna take you up, gonna take you around
Where your poor lil Pan lays, we'll drag him down
Did you crack your laugh? Did you skin your knee?
In Carolina Low I will carry thee

What is sealed with a handshake, spoiled with a kiss
You got an ugly lil mouth, boy, it's come to this
I'm bound for the hilltop, gonna make it, please
In Carolina Low I will carry thee

I am a boy from the high country
And I got a lil love for the offering
And I got a lil love for the offering
And I got a lil love, for the offering
