In Th Pines

Cat. #0617 (MFH #288) - As sung by Boyce Davis, Lincloln, Arkansas on February 29, 1968

VERSE 1
True love, true love, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night,
I slep't in th pines, where th sun never shines
And, I shivered with th cold, dreadful cold

VERSE 2
Tell me where did you get them store bought shoes
An' th dress you wear so fine,
I got my shoes from a railroad man
Got my dress from a driver in th mine

VERSE 3
True love, true love, tell me where will ya go,
Well, I'll go here th cold winds blow
Gonna weep, gonna sigh, gonna moan, gonna cry
Gonna dance in my good times clothes
