                                Now . . .

    G                    Em
Now there's a man you'll hear about
     C            G   C/g G
Most anywhere you go,
        G               Em
And his holdings are in Texas
        C               G
And his name is Diamond Joe.
       G               Em
And he carries all his money
     C               G
In a diamond-studded jar.
   G               Em
He never took much trouble
         C              G
With the process of the law.

                                I . . .

  G                    Em
I hired out to Diamond Joe, boys,
    C            G         C/g G
Did offer him my hand,
   G                Em
He gave a string of horses
   C                  G
So old they could not stand.
      G      /f#        C      G
And I nearly starved to death, boys,
   C               G         C/g G
He did mistreat me so,
      G     /f#     Em C
And I never saved a dollar
                      G
In the pay of Diamond Joe.

        G                 Em
Now his bread it was corn dodger
        C                 G
And his meat you couldn't chaw,
G      /f#      Em
Nearly drove me crazy
         C              G
With the waggin' of his jaw.
        G       /f#    C  G
And the tellin' of his story,
C               G       C/g G
Mean to let you know
           G     /f#   Em         /b
That there never was a rounder
           C                G
That could lie like Diamond Joe.

       G                    Em
Now, I tried three times to quit him,
    C            G
But he did argue so
G         /f#      C   G
I'm still punchin' cattle
       C              G
In the pay of Diamond Joe.
    G        /f#       C  G
And when I'm called up yonder
    C               G
And it's my time to go,
        G              Em
Give my blankets to my buddies
         C                G
Give the fleas to Diamond Joe.
