Song Description

Americana, Gillian Welch type song about love, family, pregnancy, death, sins, and forgiveness. Set in Georgia.

Lyrics

I was born in Black Rock
beneath the sweet georgia pines
daddy was a railroad man
momma was so kind

but that boy showed me heaven
how could I know
he'd just up and leave one day
when my belly began to grow

Beneath the sweet georgia pines
A sinner prays, a sinner cries
Beneath the sweet georgia pines
That's where I live, that's where I'll die

Baby born 6 days ago
she died on day number five
Mozes came to me in a dream
to carry her cross the river wide

He laid her rest beneath the trees
in a shady bed of pine
I didn't have me nothing
but (my sins and) the tears in my eyes

-------CHORUS-----
I was born in Black Rock
that's where they'll dig my grave
daddy won't forgive me
but the lord says I'll be saved

-------CHORUS--------
