DIAMONDS AND RUST -  Joan Baez
>From record of same name

Chords are as played; I cannot remember what fret the capo should go on (I play it open in C tuning)

Em   Em
Well I'll be damned
                C
Here comes your ghost again
                G
But that's not unusual
                  D
Its just that the moon is full
                    Em
And you happened to call
    Em
And here I sit
            C
Hand on the telephone
                G
I'm hearing a voice I'd known
            D
A couple of light years ago
                       Em
Heading straight for a fall

As I remember,
Your eyes were bluer than robins' eggs
My poetry was lousy you said
Where are you calling from?
A booth in mid-west
Ten years ago
I bought you some cuff-links
You bought me something
We both know what memories can bring
They bring diamonds and rust


You burst on the scene
Already a legend
The unwashed phenomenon
The original vagabond
You strayed into my arms
And there you stayed
Temporarily lost at sea
The madonna was yours for free
The girl on the half-shell
Could keep you unharmed


      Bm
Now I see you standing with brown leaves falling all around
                 Am
And snow in your hair
     Bm
Now you're smiling out of the window of that crummy hotel
                Am
Over Washington square
      C
Our breath comes out of white clouds
                         G
Mingles and hangs in the air
        Fmaj7
Speaking strictly for me
                                 G     B7
We both could have died then and there

Now your telling me
Your not nostalgic
Then give me another word for it
You who are so good with words
And keeping things vague
'Cos I need some of that vagueness now
Its all come back too clearly
Yes I loved you dearly
And if you're offering diamonds and rust
I've already paid


----------------------****--------------------------------


The picking sequence for the opening bar is as follows, repeated - slide up 2 frets, D string, to get base 
sequence.  The remainder uses the same style picking out the base runs (which you can get from the 
using the chords shown.

Em
e|-------------------------|
B|-----0---0-------0---0---|
G|----0---0---0---0---0--0-|
D|---- -----2---4---2------|
A|----- 2---------------2--|
E|--0----------------------|
    |   |   |   |   |   |

Between verses, play base on D string from fret 2 to 4 to 2 to 4 to 5 to 4 to 5 then to G string 4th fret, 
move to B7 shape before returning to the Em sequence.
Play Fmaj7 using standard F-shape with open top E.
