In the Pines
Written by Huddie Leadbetter




The longest train I ever saw,
Went down that Georgia line,
The engine passed at six o'clock,
And the cab passed by at nine.


In the pines, in the pines,
Where the sun never shines,
And we shiver when the cold wind blows.


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.


The longest train I ever saw,
Was ninety coaches long,
The only girl I ever loved,
Was on that train and gone.


I asked my captain for the time of day,
He said he throwed his watch away,
A long steel rail and a short cross tie,
I'm on my way back home.
