Song : B
Intro :
Am

Am
A tenement, a dirty street
Em
Walked and worn by shoeless feet
Am
In silence long and so complete
C G
Watched by a shivering sun
Am
Old eyes in a small child's face
Em
Watching as the shadows race
Am
Through walls and cracks that leave no trace
C G
And daylight's brightness shun

Chorus :

Dm Em
Am
The days of Pearly Spencer
Dm Em
Ah ah ahh
Am
the race is almost run

Nose pressed hard on frosted glass
Gazing as the swollen mass
On concrete fields where grows no grass
Stumbles blindly on
Iron trees smother the air
But, withering, they stand and stare
Through eyes that neither know nor care
Where the grass has gone

Chorus

Pearly, where's your milk-white skin
What's that stubble on your chin
It's buried in the rotgut gin
You've played and lost, not won
You played a house that can't be beat
Now look, your head's bowed in defeat
You walked too far along the street
Where only rats can run

Repeat chorus
Fade
