Words and music : Emmylou Harris / Paul Kennerley Album : The Ballad Of Sally Rose Label : Warner Bros Records 7599 25205-2 (1985) Transcribed : Guitar Picker - www.gospelmusic.org.uk Diamond in My Crown D G D As each long day rolls by and falls behind me A In the lonely night there's a peacefulness I've found D G D G Though I'm weary even then when I rise to start again D A D There'll be a diamond, a diamond in my crown. I have wasted all that life has laid before me I have watched as all the green fields turned to brown But I shall not disavow all these ties that bind me now There'll be a diamond, a diamond in my crown Bridge: G Shining down some day I know D Brighter than all their streets of gold A When the burdens that I carry I will lay down D G And the sorrows I have known D G I'll see them all be overthrown D A D There'll be a diamond, a diamond in my crown. With the passing of the years I will grow stronger Just as sure as this old world keeps spinning round Then the closer I will be to my Sweetest Victory There'll be a diamond, a diamond in my crownHome
