DIAMONDS BY THE YARD


As I lay down with my lady
The sounds of the night keep me warm
We're living a city life - We're living maybe
And tonight there's no reason to be strong

Romantic poets guard the darkness
And I say "My my all at such an early age"
An old man sheds a tear
He opens a little golden locket
He thought his little girl was lost in an Indian raid

Somewhere in these night lights lies the answer
And you can get diamonds by the yard
A tiffany dream of a porcelain dancer
An old man playing blues guitar

Midnight I surrender
I live beneath your ancient spell
You've been my lover since I can't remember
You save my life with the stories you tell

Somewhere in these night lights lies the answer
And you can get diamonds by the yard
A tiffany dream and a porcelain dancer
An old man playing blues guitar

Midnight I surrender
I live beneath your ancient spell
You've been my lover since I can't remember
You save my life with the stories you tell


Performed with Elliot Murphy on 26 May 1997 at Palais Des Congrés De Paris, Paris, France, during The Ghost Of Tom Joad Solo Acoustic Tour.
