Am Am

[Verse 1]
C Am F AmNow there is a man you'll hear about most anywhere you go
F C AmHis holdings are in Texas, and his name is Diamond Joe
F C AmHe carries all his money in a diamond-studded jar
C Am F AmHe never was much bother by the process of the law
[Verse 2]
C Am F AmYes I hired out to Joe boys, I did offer him my hand
F C AmHe gave a string of horses so old they could not stand
F C AmI swear I like to starve to death, he did mistreat me so
C Am F AmAnd I never did save a dollar in the pay of Diamond Joe
C Am I swear I never did save a dollar...
[Verse 3]
C Am F AmHis bread it was corn dodger and his meat I could not chaw
F C AmAnd he drove me near distracted with that waggin' of his jaw
F C AmAnd the tellin' of his stories, boys, I mean to let you know
C Am F Em AmThat there never was a rounder who could lie like Diamond Joe
C Am [Verse 4]
C F AmWell I tried three times to quit him, boys, but he did argue so
F C AmThat I'm still punchin' cattle in the pay of Diamond Joe
F C AmAnd when I'm called up yonder and it comes my time to go
C Am FGive my blankets to my buddies ooh...
Amgive the fleas to Diamond Joe
C Am That's right..
C AmGive my blankies to my buddies give the fleas to Diamond Joe
