Verse 1 (0:02 0:50)

G
I new a girl
A7
Her name was truth
Bb        A7       G     G  
She was a horrible lair 
G                  A7    
She couldn’t spend one day alone 
Bb        A7            G     G
But she couldn’t be satisfied 
G            A7
When you have everything 
Bb          A7          G     G 
You have everything to lose
G                A7
She made herself a bed of nails 
Bb             A7                    G     G  
And she’s planning on putting it to use

Verse 2 (1:15 2:03)

G                                     A7
A candle throws its light into the darkness
Bb                A7                G     G  
In a nasty world so shines a good deed
G                      A7
Make sure the fortune that you seek
Bb       A7               G     G   
Is the fortune that you need
G               A7
Tell me why the first to ask
Bb              A7          G     G
Is the last to give every time
G                A7
What you say and do not mean
Bb         A7       G     G
Follows you close behind

Chorus (2:03 2:33)

F          C              G
She had diamonds on the inside
F          C              G
She had diamonds on the inside
F           C              G 
She wore diamonds on the inside
F  C  G  F  C  G
Diamonds diamonds

Verse 3 (3:00 3:23)

G                                  A7
Like the soldier long standing under fire
Bb          A7          G     G
Any change comes as a relief
G                             A7
Let the givers name remain unspoken
Bb           A7          G     G
She is just a generous thief


Chorus (3:23 4:20)

   F           C         G  
She had diamonds on the inside
   F           C         G
She had diamonds on the inside
   F            C          G
She wore diamonds on the inside
   F    C    G
She wore diamonds
  F  C   G      
Oh diamonds

She wore diamonds
F  C  G
