Little girl, little girl, where you been so long?
Not even your mama knows
In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines
I shivered the whole night long.

My daddy, he was a railroad man
Killed a mile and a half from town
His head was found neath the driving wheel
And his body has never been found.

You made me love you four thousand times
And you've taken all the love i have to give
You've taken my house, you've taken my love
I'll never will love as long as i live.

Little girl, little girl, where you been so long?
Not even your mama knows
In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines
And I shivered the whole night long.  up

  Live, Toad's Place, NYC - 12.jan.1990 

The longest train i ever seen
Was on the Georgia line
The engine fast it seeks of a cart
And it came past by last night.

In the pines, in the pines where the sun never shines
And i shivered where the cold winds blow.

Black girl, black girl
Don't you lie on me
Tell me where
Did you sleep last night.

In the pines, in the pines where the sun never shines
And i shivered where the cold winds blow.

I asked my captain for the time of  day
He got so mad he threw his watch away
Alll along the steel rail that shone 'cross town
I'm on my way back home.

In the pines, in the pines where the sun never shines
And i shivered where the cold winds blow.

In the pines, in the pines where the sun never shines
And i shivered where the cold winds blow.  up
