Notes: Please forgive some of my chord names.  I have no idea what
      the proper names should be.  Also, there is a lot of hammering-on
      and pulling-off going on throughout the song, which I haven't
      bothered to show here, but which, if you watch her ACL video,
      you will quickly pick up.  I don't think listening to her CD
      will help much with all the background instruments drowning
      out her guitar sound.


Intro:  G/D  G  D  G  G/D  G  D  A  D

 (repeat same progression throughout each verse)


Words:

1:  As a little girl I came down to the water
    With a little stone in my hand
    It would shimmer and sing and we knew everything
    As a little girl I came down


2:  But in a little while I got steeped in authority
    Heaven only knows what went wrong
    There is nothing so cruel than to bury that jewel
    When it was mine all along, I'm gonna find it

(Bridge)    
          A      C  A   D       C   D
          You're shining, I can see you
          A      C  A   D       C   D
          You're smiling, that's enough
          A   C  A    D     G           D       G  G/D  D
          I'm holding on to you, like a diamond in the rough


3:  Every now and then I can see that I'm getting somewhere
    Where I have to go is so deep
    I was angry back then and you know I still am
    I have lost too much sleep, but I'm gonna find it

    (repeat Refrain)
    Like a diamond in the rough

4:  In my dreams I go down by the water
    With a little girl in my arms
    And we shimmer and sing, and we know everything
    In my dreams I go down

    (Bridge)
    Like a diamond in the rough
