Lyrics:

Gertrude & Pearl by Michael Batdorf

Gertrude and Pearl brought me back to this world to speak with my sweetheart again
After buckets of patience and too many years
I guess my old words start sinking in
I came in a box that was left with the house where Gertrude and Pearl use to live
Now my granddaughters making art within these walls It was here the box began to give
CHORUS
Thanks to Gertrude & Pearl
the box has brought me closer to my girl
Does he tickle your britches the way he once did New Hampshire kid
She got into the box and opened it all up among the trinkets and the things of their past she found a deeper piece than her art could hold something to heed when its cast
After years had passed alone in the hills
in a house that she'd built for the trees
she remembers her grandmother's wisdom in her course little ways
Guess those words were just meant to be freed
CHORUS
Thanks to Gertrude & Pearl
the box has brought me closer to my girl
Does he tickle your britches the way he once did New Hampshire kid
Well what would she think if I sat in my pink on that back porch again
My cussing spilling over in my shire ways screaming OH SWEETHEART GET UP
OH SWEET HEART GET UP
CHORUS
Thanks to Gertrude & Pearl
the box has brought me closer to my girl
Does he tickle your britches the way he once did New Hampshire kid
