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.
I asked my captain for the time of day.
He said he throwed his watch away.
A long steel rail and a short crosstie,
I'm on my way back home.
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.
I've killed no man, I've robbed no train,
I've done no hanging crime.
Little girl, little girl, where'd you sleep last night?
Not even your mother knows
I stayed in the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines
I shivered where the cold winds blow.
The prettiest girl that I ever did see Lived in the Georgia pines
And the only girl that I ever did love I knew she'd never be mine
Little girl, little girl, don't you lie to me Tell me where did you get
From a man in the pines, where the sun never shines
I shivered where the cold winds blow
