I'm Just An Old Chunk Of Coal
By Billy Joe Shaver


E
I'm just an old chunk of coal
    G#                         C#m   B
But I'm gonna be a diamond someday
A                                   E
I'm gonna grow and glow 'til I'm so blue pure perfect
          F#                         B7
I'm gonna put a smile on ev'rybody's face
E
I'm gonna kneel and pray ev'ry day
     G#                             C#m    B
Lest I should become vain along the way
A                                  E
I'm just and old chunk of coal now Lord
    E              B7           E
But I'm gonna be a diamond someday


I'm gonna learn the best way to walk
Iím gonna search and find a better way to talk
I'm gonna spit and polish my old rough-edged self
'Til I get rid of ev'ry single flaw
Well I'm gonna be the world's best friend
Gonna go 'round shakin' ev'rybody's hand
Iím gonna be the cotton pickiní rage of the age
Hey Iím gonna be a diamond someday
