in the pines
Das ist die älteste bekannte Textversion:
Black girl, black girl, don't lie to me
Where did you stay last night?
I stayed in the pines where the sun never shines
And shivered when the cold wind blows.

in the pines

True love, true love, don't lie to me, tell me
Where did you sleep last night?
I slept in the pines where the sun never shines
And I shivered with a cold deadly cold.

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.

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
Nor heard your rattling tongue.

The longest train I ever did ride
Was a hundred coaches long.
The only woman I ever did love,
She 's on the train and gone.
