The Days of Pearly Spencer

Song Author David Mcwillams Submitted by: Anonymous
[Dm]A tenement, a dirty street
[C]Walked and worn by shoeless feet
[Dm]Inside it's long and so complete
[C]Watched by a [G7]shivering sun
[Dm]Old eyes in a small child's face
[C]Watching as the shadows race
[Dm]Through walls and cracks and leave no trace
[C]And daylight's br[G7]ightness shuns

[Dm]The days of Pe[C]arly Spencer
[Dm]The race i[C]s alm[Dm]ost run

[Dm]Nose pressed hard on frosted glass
[C]Gazing as the swollen mass
[Dm]On concrete fields where grows no grass
[C]Stumbles [G7]blindly on
[Dm]Iron trees smother the air
[C]But withering they stand and stare
[Dm]Through eyes that neither know nor care
[C]Where the gra[G7]ss is gone


[Dm]The days of Pe[C]arly Spencer
[Dm]The race i[C]s alm[Dm]ost run

[Dm]Pearly where's your milk white skin
[C]What's that stubble on your chin
[Dm]It's buried in the rot gut gin
[C]You played an[G7]d lost not won
[Dm]You played a house that can't be beat
[C]Now look your head's bowed in defeat
[Dm]You walked too far along the street
[C]Where only ra[G7]ts can run

[Dm]The days of Pe[C]arly Spencer
[Dm]The race i[C]s alm[Dm]ost run
[Dm]The days of Pe[C]arly Spencer
[Dm]The race i[C]s alm[Dm]ost run
[Dm]The race i[C]s alm[Dm]ost run

[Dm]A tenement, a dirty street
[C]Remember worn and shoeless feet
[Dm]Remember how you stood to beat
[C]The way your [G7]life had gone
[Dm]So Pearly don't you shed more tears
[C]For those best forgotten years
[Dm]Those tenements are memories
[C]Of where you'[G7]ve risen from

[Dm]The days of Pe[C]arly Spencer
[Dm]The race i[C]s alm[Dm]ost run

A tenement, a dirty street
Walked and worn by shoeless feet
Inside it's long and so complete
Watched by a shivering sun
Old eyes in a small child's face
Watching as the shadows race
Through walls and cracks and leave no trace
And daylight's brightness shuns

The days of Pearly Spencer
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 is gone

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run

Pearly where's your milk white skin
What's that stubble on your chin
It's buried in the rot gut gin
You 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

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run
The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run
The race is almost run

A tenement, a dirty street
Remember worn and shoeless feet
Remember how you stood to beat
The way your life had gone
So Pearly don't you shed more tears
For those best forgotten years
Those tenements are memories
Of where you've risen from

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run
