In The Pines

unknown

First Verse:

The longest train I ever saw

Went down that Georgia line

The engine passed at six o’clock And the cab went by at nine.

Chorus:

In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines

And I shivered when the cold winds blow.

Second Verse:

Little girl, little girl, don’t lie to me, Tell me, where’d you stay last night?

I stayed in the pines where the sun never shines

And I shivered when the cold winds blow.

Chorus:

In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines

And I shivered when the cold winds blow.

Third Verse:

I asked my captain for the time of day, He said he throwed his watch away

It’s a long steel rail and a short cross ties

I’m on my way back home

Chorus:

In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines

And I shivered when the cold winds blow.

Fourth Verse:

The train runs a bout a mile from town And it knocked my fair girl down

Her hair was found in a driver’s wheel

And her body has never been found.

Chorus:

In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines

And I shivered when the cold winds blow.
