#1.
Bm                          D       E    Bm
Who wants to buy-yyy,  this diamond ri...ng?
    Bm                                     D      E    C
She took it off her finger now, it doesn't mean a thing.

CHORUS:
F            Am           Dm           C
This diamond ring doesn't shine for me anymore,
    F            Am           Dm           C
And this diamond ring doesn't mean what it did before,
Dm           Am      Dm        Am      Gm7  C
So if you've got someone who's love is true,
                 F    F#
Let it shine for you.

#2.
Bm                          D           E    Bm
This stone is genuine, like love should be...ee,
    Bm                                D      E    C
And if your baby's truer than my baby was to me...ee.

CHORUS:#2.
F            Am       Dm             C
This diamond ring can mean something beautiful,
    F            Am          Dm              C
And this diamond ring can be dreams that are coming true,
    Dm        Am          Dm      Am         
       C
And then your heart won't have to break like mine did,
                F          F#
if there's love behind it.

Hey KK,

Thank you for this great Gary Lewis tab. 5 stars for sure.

The only change I suggest is changing the GM& chord in the chorus.

What do you think about this?

Tom
