Oyster and Pearl-Live - Lyrics

I'm just a southern gar no spar left to be had
Drifting on a current in the rain in a river bed
I been so long in this world
What I got left is all I need now
They feel you in the till until the till runs dry
There's a waterdance going on and
I wanna be there tonight
I want to Skip to My Lou to the dub step sound
Country kids gather round
You want me to be the oyster that has the pearl
Oyster and pearl, oyster and pearl
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 the sappy pine
Burn this vessel, scatter me around
I wanna feel the rushes in my hair
I wanna see the Blackberries in the sun
I wanna hear the owl singing at night
I wanna know my Sweet Lord by and by
I'm just a southern gar no spar left to be had
Drifting on a current in the rain in a river bed
Yeah I been so long in this world
All I got left is all I need now.
You want me to be the oyster that has the pearl
Oyster and pearl, oyster and pearl
But there ain't nothing like that in this girl
Yeah there ain't nothing like that in this girl
