Well, I know it's on a CD called Tribute to the Delmore Brothers, but the Louvin Brothers. I thought I had that CD, but I can't find it.
Chuck, can you remember any phrases from the lyrics that would help us find the song (titles bring up lots of "false hits").

hi joe...some of the lyrics went like this...
"left my cabin home...started out to roam....thought i wouldn't like it in the mtns......" can't remember the rest of the first verse, but i know the chorus goes like this...
"put me on the trail to carolina, that is where i long to be,
where the mountain high, reaches to the sky, there my sweetheart waits for me...hand and hand we'll gaze at the moonlight, strolling down the trail we two, carolina girl,sweetest in the world, underneath the sky so blue..."
that's all i can remember of it joe...i know it has two verses to it,maybe 3,but i know it had 2 for sure....

Tarheel, it sounds like this to me:

PUT ME ON THE TRAIL TO CAROLINA
Delmore Brothers

Left my cabin home, started out to roam.
Thought I didn't like it in the mountains.
Thought I'd like to stay in the city gay,
But it got the best of me.

CHORUS: Put me on trail to Carolina.
That is where I long to be,
Where the mountains high
Reachin' to [reach into?] the sky;
There my sweetie waits for me.
Hand in hand together in the twilight,
Strolling down the trail, we two,
Carolina girl, sweetest in the world,
Underneath the sky so blue.

That old dog of mine, let me hear him whine
When he smells a possum in the mountains.
Underneath the moon, let me hum a tune,
Strummin' on my old guitar. CHORUS

Gene

Yeah, thanks, Gene. I heard this last night at a song circle, as a male-female duet, and it sounded great.   I was about to post the lyrics but I'm glad you had already done that.

And here is a very nice rendition of this song, by the late George Chudakoff and Mary (whose last name escapes me), with guitar and washtub bass backup.

Put Me On The Trail To Carolina - George & Mary

This is from the PFS 2008 Singtime Frolics near Portland, OR.   Sad to say, George lost his battle with cancer a few months after this video was made.
