This has been a very popular tune and been recorded in many flavours by a variety of artists including an unexpected Guns-N-Roses. Usually about a man whose girl has left him (on a train) (to meet another) ("in the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines, And I shivered the whole night through"). The girl, who rides the "longest train I ever saw," may die in a wreck
In the pines, in the pines where the sun nev-er shin-es,
And we shiv-er-ed when the cold winds blow.
Hoo hoo hoo hoo Hoo hoo hoo

The Longest train I ever saw
went down the Georgia Line.
The engine passed at six o'clock
and the cab passed by at nine.
Little girl, little girl, what have I done,
That makes you treat me so.
You've caused me to weep you've caused me to mourn,
You've caused me to leave my home.

I asked my captain for the time of day,
He said he throwed his watch away.
It's a long steel rail and a short cross tie
I'm on my way back home.
