Lloyd Maines steel guitar
Dan Dugmore acoustic guitar
Albert Lee mandolin
Pete Wasner piano
Michael Joyce bass
Bob Mummert drums
Kim Richey harmony

He left you behind the same way you left me
Darling I won't take pride
Or bore you with some victory speech
I didn't come around to try and pass judgement on you girl
I'm just back here looking for a precious pearl
A precious pearl that I let slip right through my hands
A precious love that I have longed for ever since
How'd a treasure so rare get left behind somewhere
I was fool to let my anger blind me girl
So I'm just back here looking for a precious pearl

Solo

The good times we once shared
Burned up with our last bridge
And the past can't be repaired
But we might start all over again
So if you could use a old friend back here in your world
Darling I'm just looking for a precious pearl
A precious pearl that I let slip right through my hands
A precious love that I have longed for ever since
How'd a treasure so rare get left behind somewhere
I was fool to let my anger blind me girl
So I'm just back here looking for a precious pearl
