In the Pines is a traditional song dating from the 1870's. The meaning has evolved over time, though common interpretations include the song being about a run away girl, a decapitation by train, or a cautionary tale about leaving home with strangers. This live performance is from the Arkansas Folk Festival in Mountain View AR and the Ozark Folk Center in 1999.
