Black Girl (AKA In The Pines)
Some people call this Black Girl
And some folks calls it In the Pines
All I know is, it's a sad song


Black gal, black gal, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night?
In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shine
And I shivered when the cold winds blow

Black gal, black gal, where will you go
I'm going where the cold winds blow
In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shine
I will shiver the whole night through

My husband was a railroad man
Killed a mile and a half from here
His head, was found, in a driver's wheels
And his body has never been found

The long steel rails and the short cross tires
I'm on my way back home, hmm-mm
Where the sun never shine
And you shiver when the cold winds blow
