Pearl Pearl Pearl .... enjoy the lyrics to this traditional Bluegrass song.

Country Girl Leaning Against a Tree, circa 1893

Pearl, Pearl, Pearl, Come let us see our girl,
I have got a horse and mule, forty acres near a school.
We'll be happy as two bugs.

Pearl, Pearl, Pearl, come be my lovin' girl.
Don't you marry Lester Flatt, he slicks his hair with 'possum fat.
Change your name to Mrs. Earl Scruggs.

Pearl, Pearl, Pearl, Come let us see our girl,
Are you still our valentine, Do you still look so divine?
Come and let us see our darling Pearl.

Pearl, Pearl, Pearl, You'll git no love from Earl.
This here man is such a sap,
He won't hold you on his lap. Unless you are an old five string banjo.

Pearl, Pearl, Pearl, He's nutty as a squirrel.
If you'll be Mrs. Scruggs, We will live on kiss n' hugs.
Like Juliet and Romeo.

Pearl, Pearl, Pearl, Come let us see our girl,
Are you still our valentine, Do you still look so divine?
Come and let us see our darling Pearl.
