Musician Neil Diamond reached out on Twitter to give a little hope during these tense times.

“I know we’re going through a rough time right now but I love ya,” the singer said in a video tweeted from his account. “I think maybe if we sing together, well, we’ll just feel a little bit better.”

He sang an acoustic version of his famous hit “Sweet Caroline” with new lyrics that some would call guidelines for social distancing.

“Hands … washing hands,” he crooned while strumming a guitar. “Reaching out … don’t touch me, I won’t touch you!”
