Blue lyrics of the day

Pearl

(Darren Haverstick Nickeltown Music BMI)
Cedar Hill – A Portrait of a Song ©2006
He sees here sitting by the gate post
As his truck pulls in the yard
He knows all day she’s waited for him there
And even though he’s bone tired
He finds the strength to smile
It’s good to know at least somebody cares
So they walk up to the front porch
Where they sit there side by side
She wags her tail as he talks about his day
He says my Pearl your wait is over
He’ll go hunting when it’s dawn
And I’ll keep quiet and hear what you have to say
Chorus
You can sing your song for me
Throw your sweet voice to the wind
That music makes me shiver to the bone
When I hear the hollow ringing
I know your singing just for me
And it’s then that I don’t feel so all alone
For awhile I don’t feel so all alone
The years go by hunts come and go
Both man and dog grow old
And they’re both convinced they’ll pass without a trace
One December day he knows it’s time he hugs his sweetheart’s neck
And he whispers Pearl please run me one more race
Chorus (2)
Pearl sing your song for me
Throw your sweet voice to the wind
That music makes me shiver to the bone
When I hear the hollow ringing
I know your singing just for me
And it’s then that I don’t feel so all alone
And its then I don’t feel so all alone

I sit outside the same house
Where the old man lived and died
And I’m watching Pearl’s puppies fight and play
Both Dad and Pearl have gone away
But their spirits linger on
And on a cool clear morn I hear my daddy say
Chorus (3)
Pearl sing your song for me
Throw your sweet voice to the wind
That music makes me shiver to the bone
You got the good lord’s ears a ringing
As you praise his holy name
And up here I don’t feel so all alone
Pearly Mae we finally made it home
My sweet Pearly Mae
We finally made it home
