[verse 1]

C
Gather round and a story I will tell
C           G                C
About the gunslinger Diamond Bell
F                    G             Am
She was the reigning terror of the west 
   F   F/E    Dm7      C         G     
Her vision in a scarlet carriage dress

     C
With 30 shining diamonds on her barrel
C             G        C
Fitted always in a red apparel
F                   G             Am
She revelled more in murder and in gore
     F   F/E     Dm7       C      G     
Than anyone who's worked the job before

       C
I was only a kid from Arkansas
C             G                C
I never had a run-in with the law
F                 G             Am
Till I ran and I stumbled and I fell
     F   F/E     Dm7     C      G      F    Am    
In love with the bandit Diamond Bell

[chorus]

Am      G
Diamond Bell
      C       F
Where are you now?
Dm       G
Over the meadow
   C            Am    G
And through the trees

[verse 2]

    C
For 7 long months we rode the trail
C          G                C
Camping out along the union rail
   F            G             Am
Twas all in the merry month of May
        F   F/E  Dm7            C           G     
When we landed a job to kill a judge in Cassoday

    C
She spoke as we trampled through the heat
C                             G                  C
She said "the boys from Kansas know I'm hard to beat"
      F              G             Am
Then turning with a grin she says to me
        F   F/E  Dm7          C   G      F    Am  
"We're going on a Kansas killing spree"

[chorus]

Am      G
Diamond Bell
      C       F
Where are you now?
Dm       G
Over the meadow
   C            Am    G
And through the trees

[verse 3]

    C
Well the courtroom gallery was full
C                     G                  C
When she put a bullet through the judges skull
   F           G             Am
We made a bold dash across the plain
    F     F/E     Dm7        C     G
And bullets flew around us like the rain

    C
In a Dodge city hotel I awoke
C                    G              C
I was chained by the ankles to a bedpost
   F           G           Am
Surrounded by a dozen volunteers
        F     F/E     Dm7        C          G        
And it took me all my strength to fight the tears
F         Am
Fight the tears

[chorus]

Am      G
Diamond Bell
      C       F
Where are you now?
Dm       G
Over the meadow
   C            Am    G
And through the trees

[verse 4]

    C
Well there's Mexican girls who sing and tell
C            G              C
Songs of the bandit Diamond Bell
      F           G           Am
But of me this is all the song I got
       F   F/E   Dm7        C      G 
And the law will avenge the men I shot

    C
So farewell, I bid you all adieu
C                    G              C
And I'm sorrowful for leaving all of you
      F            G            Am
But a lesson to you all I hope to be
       F   F/E        Dm7      C      G 
By the telling of this wretched tragedy

    C
Well the sun has gone down in the west
C                  G              C
The last beams have faded are the crest
     F               G              Am
Come morning I'll be swinging in the sun
         F   F/E  Dm7     C      G 
Like the pitiful prisoner I've become
F    Am 
I've become

[chorus]

Am      G
Diamond Bell
      C       F
Where are you now?
Dm       G
Over the meadow
   C            Am    G
And through the trees
