TRUE LOVE. TRUE LOVE.

DON'T LIE TO ME.
TELL ME WHERE DID YOU SLEEP LAST NIGHT? 
I SLEPT IN THE PINES
WHERE THE SUN NEVER SHINES
AND I SHIVVERED
WITH A COLD DEADLY COLD
I WISH TO THE LORD
I'D A NEVER BEEN BORN
OR DIED WHEN I WAS YOUNG
I NEVER WOULD A KISSED
YOUR SWEET SWEET LIPS
NOR HEARD YOUR RATTLING TONGUE
TELL ME WHERE DID YOU GET THEM PRETTY
LITTLE SHOES
AND THE DRESS
THAT YOU WEAR SO FINE
I GOT MY SHOES
FROM A RAILROAD MAN
GOT MY DRESS
FROM A DRIVER IN A MINE
THE LONGEST TRAIN
I EVER DID RIDE
IT WAS HUNDRED COACHES LONG
THE ONLY WOMAN
MY HEART EVER LOVED
SHE'S ON THAT TRAIN AND GONE
THEM LONG STEEL RAILS
THEM SHORT CROSS TIES
AIN'T GOT NO END I KNOW
THESE LONG STEEL RAILS
THESE SHORT CROSS TIES
I'M TRAMPLING
MY WAY BACK HOME
LONGEST OLD TRAIN
IN THIS WHOLE WIDE WORLD
COME AROUND JOE BROWN'S COAL MINE
HEADLIGHT COME AROUND
WHEN THE SUN COME UP
THE CABOOSE
WHEN THE SUN WENT DOWN

MY HUSBAND WAS

A RAILROAD MAN
KILLED A MILE AND A HALF
FROM HERE
I FOUND HIS HEAD
IN AN ENGINE WHEEL
BUT HIS BODY
THEY NEVER DID FIND
TRUE LOVE TRUE LOVE
TELL ME WHERE
WILL YOU GO
I'M GONNA GO
WHERE THE COLD
WINDS BLOW
GONNA WEEP
GONNA CRY
GONNA MOAN
GONNA SIGH
GONNA DANCE
IN MY GOOD TIME CLOTHES
YES MY HUSBAND WAS
A RAILROAD MAN
WAS THE BEST
IN THIS HIGH LONESOME WORLD
THE ONLY THING
THAT HE EVER DONE WRONG
WAS TO MISS
JUST ONE
LITTLE CURVE
TRUE LOVE TRUE LOVE
DON'T LIE TO ME
TELL ME WHERE
DID YOU SLEEP
LAST NIGHT
I SLEPT IN THE PINE
WHERE THE SUNN
NEVER SHINES
AND I SHIVVERED
WITH A COLD
DEADLY COLD
