Open with E bass notes
(Verse:)

E                     E2
If I ever get back to St. Louis again
              E3      Bm7     A
There's gonna be some changes made
          C#m                           G#m   
I'm gonna find old Alice and right where I left off
           A          B    E
It's gonna be just as if I stayed

E                              E2
That old organ grinder's gonna wind his box
        E3                Bm7   A
And the knife sharpener's gonna sing
     C#m                  G#m
When I get back to St. Louis again
          A        B       E
I'm gonna buy that diamond ring

(Chorus:)

        A
Diamond ring
        E1
Diamond ring
           G#
Shine like gold
  C#m       A      D
Behold that diamond ring


If I ever get back to St. Louis again
Everybody's gonna smile
One of the Mack girls dragged me up to Washington
I got stuck there for a while

She gave me more misery than a man can hold
And I took her bad advice
Now I don't aim to bother anyone
I have paid that awful price

Diamond ring
Diamond ring
Shine like gold
Behold that diamond ring

If ever I get back to St. Louis again
That diamond ring is gonna shine
That old burlesque dancer is gonna bum around
And everything's gonna be fine

I'm gonna settle up my accounts with lead
And leave the rest up to the law
Then I'm gonna marry the one I love
And head out for Wichita

Diamond ring
Diamond ring
Shine like gold
Behold that diamond ring

(End on D strummed ^)
