The Days Of Pearly Spencer
Intro = Am. 

Verse 1
Am
A tenement a dirty street
Em
Walked and worn by shoeless feet
   Am
In silence long and so complete
C/G                    G
Watched by a shivering sun

Verse 2
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                   G    Dm
And daylight's brightness shun

Chorus
Em                 Am
The days of Pearly Spencer
Am Dm G                  Am
Ahh   the race is almost run

Verse 3
Am
Nose pressed hard on frosted glass
Em
Gazing as the swollen mass
   Am
On concrete fields where grows no grass
C/G              G
Stumbles blindly on

Verse 4
Am
Iron trees smother the air
    Em
But withering they stand and stare
        Am
Through eyes that neither know nor care
C/G                 G    Dm
Where the grass has gone

Chorus
Em                 Am
The days of Pearly Spencer
Am Dm G                  Am
Aah   the race is almost run

Verse 5
Am
Pearly where's your milk white skin
Em
What's that stubble on your chin
     Am
It's buried in the rotgut gin
       C/G                 G
You've played and lost not won

Verse 6
    Am
You played a house that can't be beat
     Em
Now look your head's bowed in defeat
    Am
You walked too far along the street
      C/G           G   Dm
Where only rats can run

Chorus to fade
Em                 Am
The days of Pearly Spencer
Am Dm G                  Am  Dm Em
Aah   the race is almost run
Em                 Am
The days of Pearly Spencer
Am Dm G                  Am
Aah   the race is almost run
