Where Did You Sleep Last Night?
Leadbelly Lyrics


My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
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
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, don't you lie to me
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 husband, was a hard working man
Killed a mile and a half from here
His head was found in a driving wheel
And his body hasn't ever been found

My girl, my girl, don't you lie to me
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, don't lie to me
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
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through
Her husband, was a hard working man
Just about a mile from here
His head was found in a driving wheel
But his body never was found
My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
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
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through
My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
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
In the pines, in the pines
The sun, shine
I would shiver the whole night through

Lyrics :


My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
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
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through


My girl, my girl, don't you lie to me
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 husband, was a hard working man
Killed a mile and a half from here
His head was found in a driving wheel
And his body hasn't ever been found


My girl, my girl, don't you lie to me
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



Die Wacht

My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
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
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through
Her husband, was a hard working man
Just about a mile from here
His head was found in a driving wheel
But his body never was found
My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
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
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through
My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
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
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

Back in 2003, I went to visit my grandma in her rest home. She didn’t remember me, my brother, or even my father (her son). She was confused why we were there. She taught me many old blues and folk songs as a child, including this one. I started singing “My girl, my girl...” she immediately joined in, “don’t you lie to me/tell me where did you sleep last night..” We sang a couple of more bars before she asked “Young man, where did you learn that song?” I said, “You, grandma. You taught me that song.”

She looked over to the caretaker and said “This kid is trying to trick me!”

It was the last time I ever saw Grandma Rose. I miss her so much. ❤️

That's a good last memory. I was a lot of different people to my Grandmother during her decline, before she forgot my face altogether. She was happy to see the long dead people she thought I was. Compared to her, I had immortality, and I could tell her as that person "I'll never leave you". When I became nothing to her, it was like seeing my own death. I was drowning in feelings of hatred, revulsion, pity, and helplessness. In that moment, I would have given anything to take her burden away. My only emotional defense was to turn to stone. She was as dead to me as I was to her. My sister was there that day, and when we got home she clung to my dad and cried. When Grandmother died, I poured a glass of Spirytus Rektyfikowany and drank myself to sleep. My only solace is that men in my family die of heart attacks in their 60's. They don't have to worry about nonagenarian dementia when the widow maker takes them before retirement age.

I came to feel but not to feel this hard.

Leadbelly is such a genius that he covered Nirvanas song decade's before it came out, Sad to see both artist's go

@DA CARLY Hi! Can you please send me the source on that? Because I can't find it on YouTube or on the web. However I know Nirvana covered David Bowie's "The Man Who Sold The World"
