In The Pines

This song is by Dave Van Ronk and appears on the album Dave Van Ronk Sings Ballads, Blues & a Spiritual (1959).

Little girl, little girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night?
In the pines, in the pines where the sun never shines
I shivered the whole night through

My daddy was a railroad man
Killed a mile and a half from here
His head was found in a drivers wheel
His body hasn't never been found
In the pines, in the pines where the sun never shines
Well shivered the whole night through

You've caused me to weep, you've caused me to moan
You've caused me to lose my home
The last words that you'll hear me say
Was I want you to sing me a song
In the pines, in the pines where the sun never shines
Well shiver the whole night through

Little girl, little girl, where'd you sleep last night
Not even your mother knows
In the pines, in the pines where the sun never shines
Shivered where the cold winds blow
