Lyrics

[Verse 1] My girl, my girl, don't lie to me Tell me, where did you sleep last night? (Come on and tell me baby) In the pines, in the pines where the sun don't ever shine I would shiver the whole night through [Verse 2] My girl, my girl, where will you go? I'm going where the cold wind blows (Where’s that, baby?) In the pines, in the pines where the sun don't ever shine I would shiver the whole night through [Verse 3] My girl, my girl, don't you lie to me Tell me, where did you sleep last night? (Come on and tell me something about it) In the pines, in the pines where the sun don't ever shine I would shiver the whole night through (Shiver for me now) [Verse 4] Her husband, was a hard working man Killed a mile and half from here (what happened to him?) His head was found in a driving wheel And his body has never been found [Verse 5] My girl, my girl, don't you lie to me Tell me where did you sleep last night In the pines, in the pines where the sun don't ever shine I would shiver the whole night through
