Pearl Jam – Yellow Ledbetter lyrics


I said “I know what I waited not a boxer or the bag.”

Ah yeah, can you see them out on the porch? Ooh I don’t know why there’s something else. And the reason oughta’ leave her calm, I know. I don’t wanna stay. Yeah, but they don’t wave. Yeah. And on the sand I wanna leave it again. But I see them round the front way. I see them round the front way. I don’t wanna stay at all. Yeah. Then you said, “I wanna leave it again.”
Once I saw her on a beach of weathered sand. Oh, I said, “I don’t, I don’t know where there’s a boxer or the bag.”

Ah yeah, can you see them out on the porch? And I know, and I know. Yeah. Yeah. And I know, and I know I don’t want to stay. I wanna drum it all away… I see… Make me cry… [x2]
I don’t… Ohh… Yeah, but they don’t wave. Don’t wanna, oh… Yeah. I don’t wanna stay. Ooh… Unsealed on a porch a letter sat. On a weekend I wanna wish it all away, yeah. And they called and I said that “I want what I said” and then I call out
Again.
