DIAMONDS AND TEARS (Matraca Berg & Gary Harrison)
-------------------------------------------------
[Each pair of chords is one measure total.]
[In a lot of the E measures, hammer-on quickly from 0 to 2 on the
 A string at the beginning of the measure.]
[It's possible that this song uses a lot of chords with open B and
 high E strings, so that E might be x79900, F#m7 might be x44200,
 A might be 577600, B might be 799800, etc.  See "Outbound Plane."]

E   A   A   A     E   A   A   A
[intro]
E   A   A   A     E   A   A   A
[intro]

E               E
  Spent my life looking for
A                A             E        E    A   A
  Happiness like it was buried treasure
    E                E
Somewhere behind the secret door
A                   A             E       E    E   E
  Surely there were riches beyond measure

        B           B
I would take my sanity to task
B             B           A         A    Asus9  Asus9
  Walk across broken glass to find it
       B                B
And no mountain top was left unclimbed
B               B            A          A      A   A
  Before I ever took the time to look inside me

                E    B  F#m7  A            E    B   F#m7  A
These dreams of mine,       these precious years
         A       A  B      B           E     B   F#m7  A
Oh how they shine     like diamonds and tears
                  E    B  F#m7   A          E     B   F#m7   A
The slow grace of time,      the joy and the fears
         A       A  B      B           E     A    A    A     E   A   A   A
Oh how they shine     like diamonds and tears   [similar to intro]

Oh sure, there was love
And of course I thought it'd be my salvation
And in a way, I guess he was
There's always room for higher education

Yes, I have said and heard the word goodbye
Felt the blade and turned the knife sideways
But I'd crossed bridges while they'd burn
To keep from losing what I've learned along the way

These dreams of mine, these precious years
Oh how they shine like diamonds and tears
The slow grace of time, the joy and the fears
Oh how they shine like diamonds and tears

E   A   A   A     E   A.
[ending, similar to intro]
