I can't stand to sing the same song the same way two nights in succession, let alone two years or ten years. If you can, then it ain't music, it's close-order drill or exercise or yodeling or something, not music - Billie Holiday, 1915-1959

"In the Pines"-Dock Walsh
« on: February 01, 2014, 06:57:49 AM »
Hi all,
Dock Walsh, a banjo player who recorded a lot with the Carolina Tar Heels, recorded a solo version of "In the Pines".  It can be found on the JSP set, "Serenade in the Mountains".  His accompaniment for the song was purely chordal and was picked, in 3/4 time.  He enunciated very carefully.



In the pines, in the pines where the sun never shined
And I shivered when the cold wind blow

Oh, if I minded what Grandma said, oh were would I've been tonight
I'd've been in the pines where the sun never shined, and then shiverin' when the cold wind blows

The longest train I ever saw went down the Georgi' line
The engine, it stopped at a six-mile post, the cabin never left the town

Now darling, now darling, don't tell me no lie.  Where did you stay last night?
I stayed in the pines where the sun never shined and I shivered when the cold winds blow

The prettiest little girl that I ever saw was walking down the line
Her hair, it was of a curly type, her cheeks were rosy red

Now darling, now darling, don't tell me no lie.  Where did you stay last night?
I stayed in the pines where the sun never shines and I shivered when the cold winds blow

The train run back one mile from town and killed my girl, you know
Her head was caught in the driver wheel, her body I never could find

Now darling, now darling, don't tell me no lie.  Where did you stay last night?
I stayed in the pines where the sun never shine and I shivered when the cold winds blow

The best of friends has to part some time, then why not you and I

Now darling, oh darling, don't tell me no lie.  Where did you stay last night?
I stayed in the pines where the sun never shine and I shivered when the cold winds blow

Oh, a transfer station has brought me here, take a-money for to carry me away

Now darling, now darling, don't tell me no lie.  Where did you stay last night?
I stayed in the pines where the sun never shine and I shivered when the cold winds blow

All best,
Johnm
