Pearl, Pearl, Pearl

Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs


C                                                       G

          Pearl, Pearl, Pearl, come let us see our girl


          Are you still our valentine? Do you still look so divine?

          G                                             C

          Come and let us see our darlin' Pearl



C                                                                G

Pearl, Pearl, Pearl, don't give your love to Earl


I have got a horse and mule, Forty acres near a school

G                                   C

We'll be happy as two bugs



Pearl, Pearl, Pearl, come be my loving girl

Don't you marry Lester Flatt, He slicks his hair with possum fat

Change your name to Mrs. Earl Scruggs



Pearl, Pearl, Pearl, you'll get no love from Earl

This here man is such a sap, He won't hold you on his lap

Unless you are an old 5-string banjo



Pearl, Pearl, Pearl, he's nutty as a squirrel

If you'll be Mrs. Scruggs, We'll live on kisses and hugs

Like Juliet and Romeo.
