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

My girl, my girl, where will you go
I'm going where the cold wind blows

Her husband, was a hard working man
Ten miles and a half from here
His head was found in a driving wheel
But his body never was found

Traditional Folk Song written by Leadbelly
