Pearly Queen

Pearly Queen
1999 - Castle Music, Ltd.
Lyrics by Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi:

I bought a sequined suit from a pearly queen 
And she could drink more wine than I'd ever seen 
She had some gypsies' blood flowing through her feet 
And when the time was right she said that I would meet 
My destiny 

I traveled round the world to find the sun 
I couldn't stop myself from having fun 
And then one day I met an Indian girl 
And she made me forget this troubled world 
We're living in 

I had a strange dream. In my hair 
I saw a pearly queen lying there 
And all around her feet flowers bloomed 
But they were made of silk and sequins two by two
