THEY CUT DOWN THE OLD PINE TREE
(Willie Raskin, George Brown, Edward Eliscu)

Stop a while and listen to my story
I've just come down from the hill
I went there to find my childhood sweetheart
Among the roses and the daffodils/Whip o wills?

I returned to look for the old pine tree
That haunted my memory so,
It was there she said she'd be waiting for me
When we carved our hearts long ago,

But, the old pine tree is gone
But, my love for her lingers on

They cut down the old pine tree
And they hauled it away to the mill
To make a coffin of pine
For that sweetheart of mine
They cut down the old pine tree

But she's not alone in her grave tonight,
For it's there my heart will al-ways be;
Though we'd drifted a-part,
Still they cut down my heart,
When they cut down the old pine tree.

They cut down the old pine tree
And they hauled it away to the mill
There'll be no coffin of pine
For that sweetheart of mine
They cut down the old pine tree

But she's not alone in her grave tonight,
For it's there my heart will always be;
Now I always will roam,
For they cut down my home,
When they cut down the old pine tree.

They cut down the old pine tree
And they hauled it away to the mill
There'll be no cradle of pine
For that sweetheart of mine
They cut down the old pine tree

But she's not alone in her grave tonight,
For it's there my heart will always be;
Now I'm lost and forlorn,
Wish I'd never been born,
Since they cut down the old pine tree.
