Jim And Jesse – In The Pines lyrics

In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines,
And you shiver when the cold wind blows.
The longest train I ever saw, came down the Georgia line.
The engine passed at three A. M., and the caboose passed at nine.
(Repeat first line)(Lead)
Little girl, little girl, why did you leave, and break my heart in two?
You left me here to weep and moan, you left me alone and blue.
(Repeat first line)
I asked my captain for the time of day, he said I throwed my watch away.
A long steel rail and a short cross tie, I'm on my way back home.
(Repeat first line)
Little girl, little 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 leave my home.
(Repeat first line)
If I'd a listened to what Mama said, I wouldn't be here today,
But the same old train that brought me here, will soon take me away.
(Repeat first line)
