Grateful Dead - Wharf Rat lyrics

Old man down, way down down, down by the docks of the city. Blind and dirty, asked me for a dime, a dime for a cup of coffee. I got no dime but i got some time to hear his story. My name is august west, and i love my pearly baker best more than my wine. More than my wine - more than my maker, though he's no friend of mine. Everyone said, i'd come to no good, i knew i would pearly, believe them. Half of my life, i spent doin' time for some other f**er's crime, The other half found me stumbling 'round drunk on burgundy wine. But i'll get back on my feet again someday, The good lord willin', if he says i may. I know that the life i'm livin's no good, I'll get a new start, live the life i should. I'll get up and fly away, i'll get up and fly away, fly away. Pearly's been true, true to me, true to my dyin' day he said, I said to him, i said to him, "i'm sure she's been." I said to him, "i'm sure she's been true to you." Got up and wandered, wandered downtown, nowhere to go but just hang around. I've got a girl, named bonnie lee, i know that girl's been true to me. I know she's been, i'm sure she's been true to me.
