The Old Pine Tree

Cat. #1145 (MFH #796) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on July 15, 1970

Well, they cut down the ole pine tree
Hauled it away to th mill
Make a coffin' of pine, for that sweetheart of mine
When they cut down th ole pine tree

But she's not here alone tonight
-- ---- - --- ---- - - ---- -
For there's where my heart will always be
They cut out my heart, when they cut down th tree
Cut down that ole pine tree
