Neil Diamond Performs an Updated Version of ‘Sweet Caroline’ to Help Cheer Up His Fans Staying at Home

The great crooner and Grammy Hall of Fame inductee Neil Diamond decided he wanted to cheer things up for his fans out there who may be anxious and weary from staying at home. Sitting in front of the fire with a guitar in hand, Diamond performed an acoustic version of his 1969 hit “Sweet Caroline”, slightly altering the lyrics to fit current times.

Hands washing hands
Reaching out
Don’t touch me
I won’t touch you…”

Here’s the original version of the song.
