In the big tall pines
Is where you laid me down
In the big tall pines
Is where you swore you’d stick around

You left and now you’re gone
But I can’t hanging on to you
In the big tall pines

In North Carolina you had a hungry heart
In North Carolina is where the trouble seemed to start
Your love got no rains
Now you don’t feel the same
About me in the big tall pines

At the revival you had a soul to save
At the revival I saw you kiss her face
You were lost and now you’re found
My world turned upside down
You in the big tall pines

So down at the drugstore
Is where I got this matchbox
Down at the drugstore
I got a bottle of pills
One shrug, one strike
The sulfur torched the night
And you in the big tall pines

In the big tall pines
Is where you laid me down
In the big tall pines
Is where you swore you’d stick around
I’ll drive away at dawn
You’ll sleep here ‘til kingdom come
You in the big tall pines
