(MacDonald and Carroll)

cho: In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia
On the trail of the lonesome Pine
In the pale moonshine our hearts entwine
Where you carved your name and I carved mine
Oh, you - like the mountains are blue
Like the pine - I am lonesome for you

On a mountain in Virginia stands a lonesome Pine
Just below is the little cabin home of a little girl of mine
Her name is June and very, very soon she'll belong to me
For I know she's waiting there for me 'neath that lone Pine tree;

I can hear the tinkling waterfall far among the hills
Bluebirds sing, each so merrily to his mate, in rapture trills
They seem to say, "Your June is lonesome too. Longing fills her eyes.
She is waiting for you patiently where the pine tree sighs.

In the blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia
On the trail of the lonesome pine
Stood a pretty little cow, a pretty little kine
But you can't expect a cow to read a railroad sign.
Now her bones are in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginai
And her tail's on the lonesome pine.
