From the recording The Birth of the Bombay Oysters
The tenth track from the CD mp3 format
In The Pines
My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines, in the pines, where the sun don't ever shine
And I shivered, till the mornin’ light.
My girl, my girl, where will you go? I'm going where the cold wind blows
In the pines, in the pines where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through
Her daddy, was a railroad man,
killed a mile and a half from town.
His head was found in a driving wheel
but his body never was found
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,
And you shiver when the cold winds blow
My girl, my girl, what have I done
To make you treat me so?
You caused me to weep, you caused me to moan,
You caused me to lose my home.
The longest train I ever saw was nineteen coaches long.
The only girl I ever loved, is on that train and gone.
My girl, my girl, she rides that train,
She going on back to her home.
(quiet and slow) In the pine, in the pine, she’s taking her time
And she’s going on back, alone.
