Where Did You Sleep Last Night?
by Leadbelly



My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun never shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, where will you go
I'm going where the cold wind blows
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun never shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun never shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My husband was a railroad man
Killed a mile and a half from here
His head was found in a drivers wheel
And his body haven't
Ever been found

My girl, my girl, where will you go
I'm going where the cold wind blows
You caused me to weep
And you caused me to moan
You caused me to leave my home
