Standard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
E E C C C C D D D D DENow There's a man you'll hear about CMost anywhere you go, DAnd his holdings are in Texas And his name is DEiamond Joe. EAnd he carries all his money CIn a diamond-studded jar. DHe never took much trouble With the process of tEhe law. EI hired out to Diamond Joe, boys, CDid offer him my hand, DHe gave a string of horses So old they could nEot stand. EAnd I nearly starved to death, boys, CHe did mistreat me so, DAnd I never saved a dollar In the pay of DiaEmond Joe. ENow his bread it was corn dodger CAnd his meat you couldn't chaw, DNearly drove me crazy With the waggin' of hEis jaw. EAnd the tellin' of his story, CMean to let you know DThat there never was a rounder That could lie like DiaEmond Joe.
InstrumentalENow, I tried three times to quit him, CBut he did argue so DI'm still punchin' cattle In the pay of DiaEmond Joe EAnd when I'm called up yonder CAnd it's my time to go, DGive my blankets to my buddies Give the fleas to DEiamond Joe. Sorry If wrong. I haven't listened to this song a lot. Overall, enjoy!
