G CMy first guitar was a loaner, an old off brand my cousin let me keep
D GBack when I was learning how to play like the boys in Tennessee
G CI’d sit up every night and pick it until my fingers turned green
D GHell I learned how to make her talk on these Black Diamond Strings
G CWell Daddy showed me three chords but Jimmy Steele taught me how to play
D GHe showed me the G run I’m still using today
G CI thought it surely must be magic the way he made it ring
D GBut he said it ain’t no secret son, It’s these Black Diamond Strings.
G Em C GWell I don’t know if they still make ‘em, back then they were the best.
Em A DA good time didn’t cost much, two ninety five a set
G CBack before I left Faye Ellen to chase my hillbilly dream.
D GAll it took to make me happy was an old guitar and Black Diamond Strings.
(Break)
G CNow I’ve been to the mountain top; had my share of troubles too.
D GBut if I could do it all again, Lord I know just what I’d do
G CBecause if I could have just one wish I’d take a trip back in a time machine
D GTo the day I learned to play the Wildwood Flower on Black Diamond Strings
(Chorus)
G CBack before I left Faye Ellen to chase my hillbilly dream
D GAll it took to make me happy was this old box and Black Diamond Strings
