Pearls For My Lady

Lyrics: John Dawson
Music: John Dawson

Played by the New Riders of the Purple Sage in the 1980s, but not recorded for one of their albums.

Well I see her face in the morning
Like an angel asleep on the bed
I remember the sweet love she gave me
And there's only one wish in my head

Chorus
I wanna buy perals for my lady
She fancies a string of them someday
I just wanna buy pearls for my lady
'Cause I love her much more than words can say

I work hard hard, now she works harder
And I get paid and she don't
And there ain't no food in the larder
And she could leave me but she won't

[chorus]

I work hard hard, now she works harder
And I get paid and she don't
And there ain't no food in the larder
And she could leave me but she won't

[chorus]
[chorus]
I love her much more than words can say
