Dm G Dm C Dm
An old man on his death bed whispered to me
Dm C Dm
"You are the master of your destiny"
Gm A Dm
A diamond is a diamond a stone a stone
But a man's not all good nor all bad
Bb Gm Dm
Call them as you see them you'll stand alone
Bb Am Dm
You're the best friend that you ever had oh yeah
Bb C Dm
You're the best friend that you ever had
D C D C D
So laugh when it's time to laugh, cry when it's time to cry
C D C D
Live while it's time to live, you'll die when it's time to die
Then he closed his eyes and left me alone,
my old friend's death brought his wisdom home
A diamond is a diamond...
So laugh when it's time to laugh...
