Slippery Pearls
Charlie Peacock
Words and music by Charlie Peacock
 1995 Andi Beat Goes On Music, Inc. (ASCAP) 

vamp:
 Bb6 Eb6     Bb Eb6    Bb6 Eb6     Bb
[ / / / / ][ / / / / ][ / / / / ][ / / / / ]
               Bb           Eb                      Fsus
What you hold back from the minute, the minute will lack
              Bb                Eb                          Bb
If you don't claim it from the hour then the hour takes it back
        Gm7              Eb                           Bb
All our wants will pass quickly, what remains is our need
                       Eb6                           Bb
And mama don't make no medicine that'll cure that disease

Chorus:
Bb         Eb                    Bb
Nothing is certain here in this world
    Gm7            Eb                            Bb
You drop all your treasures just like slippery pearls
                        Gm7             Eb            Bb
Oh, it's hard to find a handle on the things that you see
                                     Eb                         Bb
Cause they slide right through your fingers just like slippery pearls

VAMP

What you don't lock up inside your heart the world will consume
It might slip right down the throat of greed
Or through the floorboards in your room
There's two thieves named pain and pleasure and neither one is true
You ransom your flesh to save your bones
Then they come and take those too

CHORUS
VAMP

They don't make a map to guide you through the badlands of the soul
You could lose yourself to blind conceit or to the hunger for control
Try to guard it all from the elements and it's still gonna fall apart
Cause the world outside don't pose no threat
Like the darkness in our hearts

CHORUS
repeat CHORUS ad lib and fade
