Black Diamond Strings

	  		
G                                                               C 
My first guitar was a loaner, an old off brand my cousin let me keep 
D                                                         G 
Back when I was learning how to play like the boys in Tennessee 
G                                                          C 
I?d sit up every night and pick it until my fingers turned green 
        D                                                  G 
Hell I learned how to make her talk on these Black Diamond Strings 

  G                                                                 C 
Well Daddy showed me three chords but Jimmy Steele taught me how to play 
     D                                   G 
He showed me the G run I?m still using today 
G                                                     C 
I thought it surely must be magic the way he made it ring 
        D                                                     G 
But he said it ain?t no secret son, It?s these Black Diamond Strings. 

G           Em                          C                         G 
Well I don?t know if they still make ?em, back then they were the best. 
Em                          A                   D 
A good time didn?t cost much, two ninety five a set 
G                                                   C 
Back before I left Faye Ellen to chase my hillbilly dream. 
       D                                                         G 
All it took to make me happy was an old guitar and Black Diamond Strings. 


G                                                           C 
Now I?ve been to the mountain top; had my share of troubles too. 
       D                                                    G 
But if I could do it all again, Lord I know just what I?d do 
G                                                                    C 
Because if I could have just one wish I?d take a trip back in a time machine 
       D                                                          G 
To the day I learned to play the Wildwood Flower on Black Diamond Strings 



G                                                   C 
Back before I left Faye Ellen to chase my hillbilly dream  
        D                                                       G 
All it took to make me happy was this old box and Black Diamond Strings
