lifeblood: songs: lyrics: oyster and pearl


i'm just a southern gar
no spar left to be had
drifting on the current
in the rain in a river bed
yeah i been so
long in this world
all i've got left
is all i need now

now they feel you in the till
until the till runs dry
and there's a waterdance going on
and i want to be there tonight
i want to skip to my lou
to the dub step sound
yeah
country kids
gather round

now you want me to be
the oyster that has the pearl
oyster and pearl
oyster and pearl
oh but there ain't nothing like that
in this girl

baby all i need is a creek
at dusk and dawn
oh them muddy waters
is where i want to be found
oh won't you build a fire
with sappy pine
burn this vessel
scatter me around

i wanna feel
the rushes in my hand
and i wanna see
the blackberries in the sun
i wanna hear
the owl singing at night
and i wanna know
my sweet lord by and by

now i'm just a southern gar
no spar left to be had
drifting on the current
in the rain in a river bed
yeah i been so
long in this world
what i've got left
is all i need now

but you want me to be
the oyster that has the pearl
oyster and pearl
oyster and pearl
oh there ain't nothing like that
in this girl
yeah there ain't nothing like that
in this girl
