Black Girl
Traditional - Lead Belly - same tune as In the Pines

Black girl, black girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night?
In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines
And I shivered the whole night through

Black girl, black girl, where will you go?
I'm goin' where the cold wind blows
In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines
I will shiver the whole night through

My husband was a railroad man
Killed a mile and a half from here
His head was found in the driver's wheel
And his body haven't never been found

Black girl, balck girl, where will you go
I'm goin' where the cold wind blows
You caused me to weep and you caused me to moan
You caused me to leave my home
