Cracker Jack Diamond 
By Don Williams
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

Well he spent that summer going door to door
With a can of gas and an old lawn mower
         G                                        D
Thatís a sure fire way to make a buck when youíre fourteen
Well he made a block with no luck at all
Then he spotted a place where the weeds were tall
       G                                       D
With a young girl sitting on the porch eatingí ice cream

Deep in the pocket of his grass stained jeans
Was some caramel corn and a plastic ring
Leftover from the week before
A                      G         A
Momma didnít wash them thank the lord

D           G                     D              Bm              A
Just like a Cracker Jack Diamond, you never know when your gonna find one
D          G                  A   G
They found love from that day on
D                G                  Bm                A            G
The hand of fate put them together, their hearts will stay forever young
A                   D        G  Bm  A
Like a Cracker Jack Diamond

Well itís been five years since he gave her his prize
Now the sparkleís gone, but not in their eyes
And heís wanting to tell her whatís been on his mind lately
He said, girl I ainít rich but Iíve been saving up
A little ever day Ďtil I had enough
Before he finished he said, you know I will baby

Deep in the pocket of his holy jeans
Was money for the preacher and a diamond ring
He took her back to that old front porch
Slipped it on her finger and he thanked the Lord


C                   C/B              D
Now once a year she takes it out but it wonít fit her hand
C                C/B                         A
But she wears it in her heart because thatís where it all began
