The longest train I ever saw
Went down that Georgia line
The engine passed at six o'clock
And the cab passed by at nine.
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun never shines
And we shiver when the cold wind blows;
I asked my captain for the time of day
He said he throwed his watch away
A long steel rail and a short cross tie
I'm on my way back home.
Little girl, little girl, what have I done
That makes you treat me so?
You caused me to weep, you caused me to mourn
You caused me to leave my home.
