...DIAMONDS & GOLD... by Tom Waits
---------------------.............

*from 'Rain Dogs' (1985)*


*CAPO 3rd FRET*

(Original Key: Cm)


Intro:

Am  F (x2)

Verse 1:

Am      F      Am    F
 Broken glass, rusty nails,
          Am   Dm      Am   E7
Where the wild violets grow.
         Am         F
Say good-bye to the railroad,
    Am          F
The mad dogs of summer,
    Am    E7           Am
And every-thing that I know.

Chorus 1:

     F                         Am
What some men will do here for diamonds,
     F                         Am
What some men will do here for gold.
F                                       Am
 They're wounded, but they just keep on climbing,
    F                        E7
And sleep by the side of the road.

Bridge 1:

          Am                    Dm
There's a hole in the ladder, a fence we can climb,
                        E7
Mad as a hatter; you're thin as a dime.
   Am                     Dm
Go out to the meadow; the hills are a-green,
Am                  E7         Am
 Sing me a rainbow, steal me a dream.

Interlude:

Am  F (x2)

Verse 2:

Am             F        Am            F
 Small-time Na-poleon's shattered his knees,
       Am           Dm         Am   E7
But he stays in the saddle for Rose.
    Am          F            Am           F
And all his dis-ciples, they shave in the gutter,
         Am            E7          Am
And they gather what's left of his clothes.

Chorus 2:

     F                         Am
What some men will do here for diamonds,
     F                         Am
What some men will do here for gold.
F                                       Am
 They're wounded, but they just keep on climbing,
    F                        E7
And sleep by the side of the road.
