lyrics

Song Of The Crying Pine
(F. Meyer-E. Antinelli BMI Ditty Dat Music)

Turpentine Mabel at work
Turpentine Mable at work
eleven long hours in the gaze of a demon
voice is still, her soul is screamin'
tales of the sea starts her to dreamin’
Turpentine Mable at work

she’s never seen the sea
never ever seen the sea
ships and boats thirst for tar
blisters hands tired and raw
render pitch for boats afar
she’s never even seen the sea

song of the crying pine
song of the crying pine

deep in the dark lost pines
deep in the dark lost pines
another tree stripped and chopped
drained of essence drop by drop
ain’t no tide and the wind blows not
deep in the dark lost pines

she dreams of sailing away
dreams she's sailing away
shadows fall where demons dwell
in a story she longs to tell
on a boat far from pine tar hell
she dreams of sailing away

song of the crying pine
song of the crying pine.
