Solomon Burke - Diamond In Your Mind Lyrics




I shook the hand of the president and the pope in Rome
I've been to parties where I've had to be flown
They said everything was sacred, nothing was profane
And money was something that you throw off the back of trains

Oh always keep a diamond in your mind
You gotta always keep a diamond in your mind
Wherever you may wander
Wherever you may roam
You gotta always keep a diamond in your mind

Steam of the gravy with little fried pearls
Floating like a necklace on a beautiful girl
Johan says thanks to the food and land
And oh so ever grateful for God's on my hands

Oh always keep a diamond in your mind
Always keep a diamond in your mind
Wherever you may wander
Wherever you may roam
You gotta always keep a diamond in your mind

She's got the milk of human kindness and the fat of the lamb
Scared like a baby, well she drives like a man
She lives outside of Natchez where she operates a crane
She's like a wrecking ball no longer connected to the chain

Oh Zerelda Samuel said she almost never prayed
Said she lost her right arm, blown off in a Pinkerton raid
Then they lashed her to a windmill with old 3-fingered Dave
Now she's 102 drinking mint juleps in the shade

Everybody, always keep a diamond in your mind
You gotta always keep a diamond in your mind
Wherever you may wander
Wherever you may roam
Your gotta always keep a diamond in your mind

Always keep a diamond in your mind
Always keep a diamond in your mind
Wherever you may wander
Wherever you may roam
Your gotta always keep a diamond in your mind

Always keep a diamond in your mind
Always keep a diamond in your mind
Wherever you may wander
Wherever you may roam
Your gotta always keep a diamond in your mind

Always keep a diamond in your mind
Always keep a diamond in your mind

    I shook the hand of the president and the pope in Rome

    I've been to parties where I've had to be flown

    They said everything was sacred, nothing was profane

    And money was something that you throw off the back of trains



    Oh always keep a diamond in your mind

    You gotta always keep a diamond in your mind

    Wherever you may wander

    Wherever you may roam

    You gotta always keep a diamond in your mind



    Steam of the gravy with little fried pearls

    Floating like a necklace on a beautiful girl

    Jonah says thanks to the food and land

    And oh so ever grateful for God's all mighty hand.



    Oh always keep a diamond in your mind

    Always keep a diamond in your mind

    Wherever you may wander

    Wherever you may roam

    You gotta always keep a diamond in your mind



    She's got the milk of human kindness and the fat of the lamb

    Skin like a baby but she drives like a man

    She lives outside of Natchez where she operates a crane

    She's like a wrecking ball that's no longer connected to the chain



    Oh Zerelda Samuel said she almost never prayed

    Since she lost her right arm, blown off in a Pinkerton raid

    Then they lashed her to a windmill with old 3-fingered Dave

    Now she's 102 drinking mint juleps in the shade



    Everybody, always keep a diamond in your mind

    You gotta always keep a diamond in your mind

    Wherever you may wander

    Wherever you may roam

    Your gotta always keep a diamond in your mind



    Always keep a diamond in your mind

    Always keep a diamond in your mind

    Wherever you may wander

    Wherever you may roam

    Your gotta always keep a diamond in your mind



    Always keep a diamond in your mind

    Always keep a diamond in your mind

    Wherever you may wander

    Wherever you may roam

    Your gotta always keep a diamond in your mind



    Always keep a diamond in your mind
