Black girl, black girl
Don't you lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night

'Neath the pines, 'neath the pines
Where the sun never shines
And I shivered in the cold, deadly cold*

Her husband was a railroad man
He died a half mile out of town

His head was found 'neath the driving wheel
But his body was never, ever found

Black girl, black girl
Don't you lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night

'Neath the pines, 'neath the pines
Where the sun never shines
And I shivered in the cold, deadly cold*
