Billy Joe Royal - Poor Little Pearl lyrics

Poor little Pearl
Shy little girl
Never had nothing in the whole wide world you could call your own
Except the light in your eye

Your daddy died a bum with a belly full of rum
Your mama died pleading for a miracle to come
Now you're all alone
Still your head's held eye

Oh, poor little Pearl
I'm gonna be your world
I'm gonna love you girl
Till the day I die
Take my hand
I'm gonna be your man
We're gonna walk this land with our heads held high

Poor little Pearl
Shy little girl
Never had nothing in the whole wide world except a big old smile
And the will to live
Freckles on your nose
Wrinkles in your hose
Sunday got to meeting in your hand me down clothes
Sunshine child you got so much to give

Oh, poor little Pearl
I'm a-gonna be your world
I'm a-gonna love you girl
Till the day I die
Take my hand
I'm a-gonna be your man
We gonna walk this land with our heads held high

Poor little Pearl
Shy little girl
Never had nothing in the whole wide world you could cling onto
Except a dream and a prayer
From now on
Your lonely will be gone
You'll never have to worry about being all alone
And feeling blue
I'll be right there

Oh, poor little Pearl
I'm a-gonna be your world
I'm a-gonna love you girl
Till the day I die
Take my hand
I'm a-gonna be your man
We gonna walk this land with our heads held high

Poor little Pearl
I'm a-gonna be your world
I'm a-gonna love you girl
Till the day I die
Take my hand
I'm a-gonna be your man
We gonna walk this land with our heads held high

Poor little Pearl
I'm a-gonna be your world
I'm a-gonna love you girl
Till the day I die
