Neil Diamond held onto the secret for decades, but he has finally revealed that President Kennedy's daughter was the inspiration for his smash hit "Sweet Caroline." "I've never discussed it with anybody before _ intentionally," the 66-year-old singer-songwriter told The Associated Press on Monday during a break from recording. "I thought maybe I would tell it to Caroline when I met her someday." He got his chance when he performed the song via satellite at Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg's 50th birthday party. The song was a No. 1 hit, and Neil got the opportunity to finally release his secret over satellite at Caroline Kennedy's 50th birthday party. Warm, touchin' warm Reachin' out Touchin' me Touchin' you Caroline Kennedy is said to be "struck" by the revelation and very happy.
Where it began, I can't begin to know when But then I know it's growing strong Oh, wasn't the spring, whooo And spring became the summer Who'd believe you'd come along
Hands, touching hands, reaching out Touching me, touching you Oh, sweet Caroline Good times never seem so good I've been inclined to believe it never would
And now I, I look at the night, whooo And it don't seem so lonely We fill it up with only two, oh And when I hurt Hurting runs off my shoulder How can I hurt when holding you
Oh, one, touching one, reaching out Touching me, touching you Oh, sweet Caroline Good times never seem so good Oh I've been inclined to believe it never would
Ohhh, sweet Caroline, good times never seem so good
