Lyrics:

Well I Had Me a Woman From The Hills of Carolina
I Loved That Woman So Fine
But She Run Off with My Cousin From Machipongo Va
And I Laid Them Both Low In The Pines 

Chorus

The Sheriff is Coming With A Posse of Seven
Ain’t Noone Gonna Get Out Alive
But I’m Locked Away Baby
With Plenty of Ammunition
And My Daddy’s Service .45

Chorus

My Mama Said Boy
You’ll Never Amount to Nothing
Never Amount to Nothing At All
You Been Creeping And Sliding Into the Wicked Wicked
Darkness
Into Satan’s own Lap You Will Fall

Chorus

Story behind In the Pines:

Leadbelly wrote this but I could never remember the words so I just made them up.  Also this song was originally called “Black Girl.”
