  • Lady Pearl in jail lady Pearl in jail
    You'll rise
    Lady Pearl in jail lady Pearl in jail
    You'll fight

    A letter from her mother now dying in her bed
    Get on home quickly with the medicine
    No money in her pocket no wheels to go ahead
    She grabbed her colt 44 and

    Went along the mountain side
    Mama love I'm on my way don't you cry
    I'll make it just in time
    Mama love I'm on my way don't you cry
    Please hold on

    The young lady Pearl was dressed
    In a man's jeans and a shirt
    A stage coach was stopped
    And robbed were three passengers
    Gave each of them a dollar
    Enough for them to eat
    Then she disappeared down south and

    Went along the mountain side
    Mama love I'm on my way don't you cry
    I'll make it just in time
    Mama love I'm on my way don't you cry

    Lady Pearl in jail lady Pearl in jail
    You'll rise
    Lady Pearl in jail lady Pearl in jail
    You'll fight Writer/s: MICHAEL POULSEN
