In The Pines
Traditional – Verse
and Chorus share the same melody
The longest train I ever
Went down that Georgia line.
The engine passed at six o'clock,
And the cab passed by at nine.
In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines.
And you shiver when the cold wind blows. (Sing twice)
I asked my captain the time
He said he throwed his watch away.
A long steel rail and a short cross tie,
And I'm on my way back home.
Little girl, little girl,
what have I done,
That makes you treat me so?
You caused me to weep, you caused me to mourn,
You caused me to leave my home.
of Bluegrass Banjo
