The world beat you for the something nice 
    B            C#
You worked hard, died poor 
F#                 C#
You mined what you died for 
B                       C#
Diamonds di di di di di uh 

F#                 B
You can whistle my name 
                   Ebm
It's the mines, in Africa 
C#
That are to blame 
F#                   B
You can Scoop out my brain 
                 Ebm               C#
Shape it into an ear and then tell me your pain 

F#, riff

Held death at bay from the first day 
B             C#
Stayed awake, stayed awake 
F#                 Ebm

When it's late you'll see the hole is empty                   and oh so deadly 
F#                   B
They want me raw and smooth like glass 
                           Ebm  
They want it fast but they don't want flaws 
            Ebm Ebadd2 (x68866)
I'm a girl's best friend 
        C#                      C#7  (maybe not a 7, but it helps add to the tension)
Can you cut, I can cut, 'cause I'm a rough gem 

F#

F# C# B B x2

F#                 C#
who lives in those lights in the distance? 
B                           C#
Watered down, the rain will help you out 
F#                    C#
I had a dream, it was all a dream 
           B                            C#
But it was ruined by the sun shining in through me 

F#
