In The Pines

G     C     G

In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines

D     G

And we shiver when the cold winds blow


G     C     G

The longest train I ever saw

D     G

Went down that Georgia line

G     C     G

The engine passed at six o’ clock

D     G

And the cab passed by at nine


Chorus


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


Chorus


I asked my captain for the time of day

He said he threw his watch away

A long steel rail and a short cross tie

I’m on my way back home


Chorus


I wish to the Lord I’d never been born,

Or died when I was young

I never would have kissed your sweet, sweet lips

Or heard you rattling tongue


Chorus


Tell me where did you get them pretty little shoes

And the dress you wear so fine

I got my shoes from a railroad man

Got my dress from a driver in the mine
