Tuning: E A D G B e


Verse: A B
Chorus: G B A B G D A B


Verse 1:
I dug up a diamond
rare and fine
I dug up a diamond
in a deep dark mine
if only I could cling to
my beautiful find
I dug up a diamond
in a deep dark mine

Verse 2:
my gem is special
Beyond all worth
as strong as any metal
or stone in the earth
sharp as any razor
or blade you can buy
bright as any laser
or any star in the sky

Chorus ?:
maybe once in a lifetime
you'll hold one in your hand
once in a lifetime
in this land
where the journey ends
in a worthless claim
time and again
in the mining game
