American Folk - In the Pines


In the Pines

The longest train I every saw,
Went down that Georgia line.
The engine passed at six o’clock
And the cab went by at nine.
In the pines, in the pines where the sun never shines,
And I shivered when the cold winds blow.
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.
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.
The train run about 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.

Those are the ORIGINAL song lyrics! Pretty creepy and sad if you ask me!

For more information about this folk song's confusing history click on these links:

"In the Pines", also known as "Where Did You Sleep Last Night?" and "My Girl", is a traditional American folk song originating from two songs, "In the Pines" and "The Longest Train", both of whose authorship is unknown and date back to at least the 1870s. The songs originated in the Southern Appalachian area of the United States in the contiguous areas of Eastern Tennessee and Kentucky, Western North Carolina and Northern Georgia.
