I'M JUST AN OLD CHUNK OF COAL – John Anderson

[Verse 1]

 G           C           G
I'm just an old chunk of coal,
    B              B7           Em  
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day,  
C                                   G
I'm gonna grow and glow 'til I'm so blue pure and perfect,
          A               A7         D      D7
I'm gonna put a smile on ev'rybody's face.   

[Verse 2]

G                   C          G
I'm gonna kneel and pray ev'ry day, 
     B                B7            Em  
Lest I should become vain along the way. 
C                        G
I'm just and old chunk of coal now Lord,
    A7             D7            G
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day.

[Verse 3]

G                   C             G
I'm gonna learn the best words to talk,
      B                 B7            Em  
Gonna search and find a better way to walk.
C                                G
I'm gonna spit and polish my old rough-edged self,
      A           A7            D      D7
'Til I get rid of ev'ry single flaw.  

[Verse 4]

     G                 C           G
Well I'm gonna be the world's best friend,
      B                 B7          Em  
Gonna go 'round shakin' ev'rybody's hand.
    C                                G
Oh, I'm gonna be the cotton-pickin' rage of the age,
     A7         D7          G
I'm gonna be a diamond some day.

You should mention that this is a John Anderson COVER of a BIlly Joe Shaver song.
