I’ve had a look on ultimate guitar, and I took the liberty of splicing together all the
on UG to make a supertab. Now, im not sure how this sounds, because as I write this
my guitar is locked in my next-door neighbours house. I hope it sounds fine, and I hope 
is easier than picking and choosing between 5 different tabs. Cheers,
Greg.

Verse 1

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

         F           C         G
But she had diamonds on the inside
F          C               G
She had diamonds on the inside
F          C               G
She had diamonds on the inside
F  C  G
Diamonds

Verse 2 (1:15 2:03)

G                                     Am
A candle throws its light into the darkness
Bm                Am                G     G
In a nasty world so shines a good deed
G                      Am
Make sure the fortune that you seek
Bm       Am               G     G
Is the fortune that you need

G               Am
Tell me why the first to ask
Bm              Am          G     G
Is the last to give every time
G                Am
What you say and do not mean
Bm         Am       G     G
Follows you close behind

Chorus

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

Verse 3

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


Chorus

   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
   F     C    G
She had diamonds
   F     C     G
She wore diamonds
F  C  G
Diamonds
