  Cm
A tenement, a dirty street,
 Gm
Walked and worn by shoeless feet
Cm
Inside it's long and so complete,
 Eb                     Bb
Watched by a shivering sun

Cm         
Old eyes in a small child's face,
 Gm
Watching as the shadows race
         Cm
Through walls and cracks that leave no trace,
     Eb                    Bb
And daylight's brightness shun

(PLAY MAIN RIFF THROUGHOUT CHORUS)

Fm  Gm               Cm
The days of Pearly Spencer,
Fm  Gm                 Cm
Ah, The race is almost run

Cm
Nose pressed hard on frosted glass,
Gm
Gazing as the swollen mass
Cm
On concrete fields where grows no grass,
 Eb              Bb
Stumbles blindly on

Cm
Iron trees smother the air,
     Gm
But, withering, they stand and stare
        Cm
Through eyes that neither know nor care,
 Eb                  Bb
Where the grass has gone

(PLAY MAIN RIFF THROUGHOUT)
Fm  Gm               Cm
The days of Pearly Spencer
Fm  Gm                 Cm
Ah, the race is almost run

Cm 
Pearly, where's your milk-white skin,
Gm
What's that stubble on your chin?
Cm
Buried in the rotgut gin,
    Eb                   Bb
You played and lost, not won
    Cm
You played a house that can't be beat,
    Gm
Now look, your head's bowed in defeat
    Cm
You walked too far along the street,
       Eb           Bb
Where only rats can run

(REPEAT MAIN RIFF)
Fm   Gm              Cm
The days of Pearly Spencer,
Fm   Gm                Cm
Ah, the race is almost run
Fm   Gm               Cm
The days of Pearly Spencer,
Fm  Gm                 Cm
Ah, the race is almost run

An F. K. Tab,,,,Enjoy!!!!!!
