BOB DYLAN lyrics : "Diamond Joe"


Now there's a man you'll hear about
Most anywhere you go

And his holdings are in Texas
And his name is Diamond Joe.


And he carries all his money
In a diamond-studded jar
He never took much trouble

With the process of the law.

I hired out to Diamond Joe, boys

Did offer him my hand
He gave a string of horses
So old they could not stand.


And I nearly starved to death, boys
He did mistreat me so

And I never saved a dollar
In the pay of Diamond Joe.


Now his bread it was corn dodger
And his meat you couldn't chaw
Nearly drove me crazy

With the waggin'of his jaw.

And the tellin' of his story

Mean to let you know
That there never was a rounder
That could lie like Diamond Joe.


Now, I tried three times to quit him
But he did argue so

I'm still punchin' cattle
In the pay of Diamond Joe.


And when I'm called up yonder
And it's my time to go
Give my blankets to my buddies

Give the fleas to Diamond Joe.
