chorus
Diamonds and Gold, Diamonds and Gold
  A man could be tempted by Diamonds and Gold
  He'll spend his life and endanger his soul
  Looking for Diamonds and Gold, Diamonds and Gold
   
1.
Her blue eyes twinkled like diamonds
  Her hair sparkled just like spun gold
  I wanted to shine like her hero
  A knight in the tales I was told
 
2.
I heard about a lost treasure
  Long stashed in a far badlands cave
  But only a fool would go looking
  With desert and outlaws to brave
   
chorus
 
 
3.
I spent all the money I had
  On bullets and food and canteens
  Set out to discover the treasure
  To bring to the girl of my dreams
   
4.
I drank my last drop of water
  Then I met a mean mama bear
  I squeezed through a crack in a rock face
  And stared at what I saw in there
   
chorus
 
   
5.
A treasure of gold and jew'lry
  I knelt in the dust to see more
  Then I heard a dangerous rattle
  Five diamondbacks crawled 'cross the floor
   
6.
I lay in dirt in the darkness
  And heard her sweet voice in my ear
  She whispered, "You chased after treasure
  And lost everything you held, dear."
   
chorus
 
   
7.
(repeat verse 1.)
   
chorus
 
   
coda
He'll spend his life and endanger his soul
  Looking for Diamonds and Gold, Diamonds and Gold
 
Diamonds and Gold
