This song is by Big Joe Williams and appears on the album Mississippi's Big Joe Williams and His Nine-String Guitar (1962) and on the compilation album Big Joe Williams and the Stars of Mississippi Blues (2004).

Boys, if a woman tell you she love you, man, don't never pay that no mind
Yeah, if a woman says she love you, boys, don't never pay that no mind
You know, she don't do nothin' but every Saturday night she run around, 'way down by Whistlin' Pines

Every time I look at my baby's face, man, it make my love come down
Lord, you know I think about my little woman, she's 'way down by Whistlin' Pines

I'm gonna sing these blues, and I believe I close 'em down
I'm gonna sing these blues, baby, and I believe I close 'em down
You know, I can't find my little woman, she done moved 'way down by Whistlin' Pines

Every time I think about my baby, Lord, it make my love come down
Every time I think about that little woman, man, you know it make my love come down
Know, she live 'way up by Crawford, Mississippi, 'way down by Whistlin' Pines
