Turnpike Troubadours
Diamonds and Gasoline
Album: Diamonds and Gasoline
Tabbed by: Travis Martin

This is one of my favorite songs and the title track of the album. The lyrics have odd timing with the 
chords so you definitely need to listen to it a few times to get it right. I couldn't find it anywhere
on the internet so I did it myself. This is the first tab I've ever done so I have no idea how 
accurate it is. I've never even seen it played, I'm just going off my ear. If anyone knows the picking 
pattern, I'd appreciate it.

As the commenter below said, the chord walks down from C - C/B - Am. Thanks!

CHORDS: C Am F G


Verse 1

C C/B Am         F            C
Under cover and blame it on a season
C    C/B         Am          F              G
It ain't no kind of reason, baby why I come and go
C C/B Am          F               C
I had a lover, she felt as good as trees
C        C/B          Am                  F                C
and you can't ask if it's please and you can't ask the wind to blow



CHORUS

C           G                          F            C             
And I would buy for you a diamond or myself some gasoline
C    G                              F               C
If I can't afford you darlin then I can't afford to dream
C         F                C             F              Am
And is it time I should be moving, is it time I settled down
C                 Am                F               C
Will I sit still or will I feel the wheels spinning round


Verse 2

C     C/B    Am       F               C
Well I ain't the brightest bird that ever flew
C      C/B       Am      F                G
I'm just someone you knew, a road you traveled on
C C/B Am            F             C
All the colors they shine and fade away
C         C/B                 Am       F                C
Well they're just like New Year's day they're here then they're gone


CHORUS

C           G                          F            C             
And I would buy for you a diamond or myself some gasoline
C    G                              F               C
If I can't afford you darlin then I can't afford to dream
C         F                C             F              Am
And is it time I should be moving, is it time I settled down
C                 Am                F               C
Will I sit still or will I feel the wheels spinning round


Instrumental


Verse 3

C C/B  Am        F             C
Lord I love you I wish you only knew
C       C/B  Am              F               G
I wish you had a clue I wish you had a clue you know
          C  C/B    Am            F        C 
(But I'm) stuck here in Tulsa with my Oklahoma blues
C            C/B    Am                F             C
WIth a pair of concrete shoes that got me sinkin' pretty low


CHORUS
C           G                          F            C             
And I would buy for you a diamond or myself some gasoline
C    G                              F               C
If I can't afford you darlin then I can't afford to dream
C         F                C             F              Am
And is it time I should be moving, is it time I settled down
C                 Am                F               C
Will I sit still or will I feel the wheels spinning round
    F                 C
The wheels a spinning round
    F           C        Am   F  C
The wheels... a spinning
C Am F C

Thanks for the effort! I just discovered this band, which is a shame since I live in Austin.....
-kahree | 3/11/2012
You did a good job! The chord name you are looking for is C/B


-lmofle | 11/4/2012
Never heard of T. T. Should have seen them in Craponne, France july 2012 but I got a DUI and could'nt make it. I had bought their CD's and loved it all. Now I can masacre some of their songs in the confort of my own home. Hope they come again to Europe! ...Jeff
