A               D
 Where it began, I can't begin to knowing
A                             E
 But then I know it's growing strong
A                  D
 Was in the spring, and spring became the summer
A                                E
 Who'd have believed you'd come along?
A     A6              E7            D                      E7     D  E
Hands, touching hands, reaching out, touching me, touching you

A         D                                E7       D E
Sweet Caroline, good times never seemed so good
A             D                          E       D   C#m Bm

A                  D
 Look at the night, and it don't seem so lonely

A                D
 And when I hurt, hurting runs off my shoulders
A                            E
 How can I hurt when holding you?
A    A6             E7            D                      E7       D  E
Warm, touching warm, reaching out, touching me, touching you

A         D                                E7       D E
Sweet Caroline, good times never seemed so good
A             D                          E       D   C#m Bm
I've been inclined to believe they never would.  Oh, no, no

A         D                          E7       D E
Sweet Caroline, I believe they never could
