JOAN BAEZ lyrics : "Diamonds And Rust"

Well I'll be damned
Here comes your ghost again
But that's not unusual

It's just that the moon is full
And you happened to call
And here I sit

Hand on the telephone
Hearing a voice I'd known
A couple of light years ago

Heading straight for a fall

As I remember your eyes

Were bluer than robin's eggs
My poetry was lousy you said
Where are you calling from?

A booth in the midwest
Ten years ago
I bought you some cufflinks

You brought me something
We both know what memories can bring
They bring diamonds and rust


Well you burst on the scene
Already a legend

The unwashed phenomenon
The original vagabond
You strayed into my arms

And there you stayed
Temporarily lost at sea
The Madonna was yours for free

Yes the girl on the half-shell
Would keep you unharmed


Now I see you standing
With brown leaves falling around
And snow in your hair

Now you're smiling out the window
Of that crummy hotel
Over Washington Square

Our breath comes out white clouds
Mingles and hangs in the air
Speaking strictly for me

We both could have died then and there

Now you're telling me

You're not nostalgic
Then give me another word for it
You who are so good with words

And at keeping things vague
Because I need some of that vagueness now
It's all come back too clearly

Yes I loved you dearly
And if you're offering me diamonds and rust
I've already paid
