DT Lyrics:

Subject: Origins: Pink
From: IC Keith
Date: 09 Jul 11 - 12:39 PM

I learned a song decades ago called "Pink." It has a lot of great lines in it. The 1st 2 verses are:

C'mon my Pink, tell me what you think;
You've been too long makin' up your mind.
You told more lies than there's stars in the sky,
and your heart is no more mine.

There was a boy in this old town,
And he lived on cards and wine.
I dragged my razor 'cross his throat,
And my baby paid the fine"

I have a grant to research a collection of edgy folksongs for a project I call, "Folksongs You Never Sang in Grade School." I have never been able to find any information about this song other than the guy I heard sing it 30 years ago said it was an old riverboat (or possibly steamboat) song. Does anyone know anything about this song?
