PEARLY
lyrics and music by Sam Cooper

He pulled another gold piece from his hand-stitched leather vest,
Tossed and shot it while in mid-air with a bullet that was blessed,
Smoke crawled from the barrel of his shiny silver gun,
And it was nice, like burning dice, how he rolled it home for fun,

(chorus)
Pearly, Pearly, Pearly,
Kill that one for me,
Pearly, Pearly Donovan,
Gets up early just to shoot three men.

She pulled another gold piece from the valley in her chest,
And tossed it on the counter, and ordered whiskey with the rest,
This time she ordered two drinks, one was for the gun,
She pushed one glass toward Pearly, and said, "Here friend, kill this one!"
And she said...(chorus)

Seems like another era since those coins were being passed,
The women were so wild then, and the guns were moving fast,
Now Lily wanted Pearly, but she had another man,
So she took Pearly to the back room, and pointed him out,
And told Pearly, as she squeezed his hand,
And she said...(chorus)
