about

This song was commissioned by Paul for his wife, Caroline's birthday. They live in Michigan and are preparing to retire in Bisbee, Az. Paul asked for a song talking about Caroline's favorite pastimes and her love for Bisbee.

lyrics

Caroline

Oceanside, seaside dreams
May be nice, may suffice.
But high desert sounds like pleasure,
Beats the cold and snowy weather

Her dream house, painted purple
In an old town in the mountains
Tie-dye cowboys, hippie lawyers
Biker gangs and tattoo parlors.

Caroline, she counts the days
Til she can count the Bisbee steps.
She sees the top, she’s out of breath,
Done with half, onto the rest.

Thoughts of gardening and raising chickens
She gets antsy as snowdrifts thicken.
Bean burritos, cold Fat Tire
Hit the stair climb in October.

Little Jack will get his walks in
Maybe Paul is pony tailing.
Farmer’s market on the weekends.
More cerveza, Bisbee dreaming

Caroline, she counts the days
Til she can count the Bisbee steps.
She sees the top, she’s out of breath,
Done with half, onto the rest.

Sixty-eight, Bisbee’s great
Seventy-one, the dog is done
Seventy-four, she’s at the door.
