The Trail of the Lonesome Pine lyrics

The Trail of the Lonesome Pine lyrics by Harry Caroll and Ballard MacDonald

(Editor’s note: featured in the Laurel & Hardy film Way Out West — €“ 1937)

On a mountain in Virginia
Stands a lonesome pine
Just below is the 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 — €œYour 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
In the pale moon shine our hearts entwine
Where she carved her name and I carved mine
Oh, June, like the mountains I’m blue
Like the pine I am lonesome for you
In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia
On the trail of the lonesome pine
