about

Traditional Folk Song

lyrics

Black girl black girl don't you lie to me -
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines in the pines where the sun never shines -
And I shivered the whole night long
Black girl black girl tell me where will you go
I'm going where the cold wind blows

I caused her to weep
I caused her to moan
I caused her to leave her home

My daddy was a railroad man - killed a mile and a half from town
His head was caught 'neath the driver's wheel - and his body ain't
never been found

Black girl black girl don't you lie to me -
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines in the pines where the sun never shines -
And I shivered the whole night long

The longest train I ever saw - was a hundred coaches long
And the only one I ever loved - was on that train and gone

about

The Ranters Shawnigan Lake, British Columbia

Rant on, Children
In these recordings, The Ranters review subject matter of
localized racism, destruction of environment, and increasing homelessness. Throughout these songs, there lies a thread of
healthy contempt for religious authority, as well as a touch of humor and optimism.
“The Ranters” hope that you enjoy this musical offering of
contemporary roots/blues titled “Rant on, Children”.
