Jackson C. Frank - In The Pines lyrics

Black girl, black girl, don't lie to me
Where did you sleep last night?
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun never shines
I shivered the whole night through

My daddy was a railway man
Died a mile and a half from town
His head was found in a driver wheel
His body has never been found

I wish to my Lord I had never seen your face
Heard your lying tongue
You cause me to weep and you cause me to moan
I'm sorry you ever where born

My daddy's ma was an engineer
My sister drove a hack van
I worked out in the engine yard
All day I balled the jack

Black girl, black girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where, where did you sleep last night?
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun never shines
I shivered the whole night through
