Big Blue Diamonds
Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs, 1965***
On Tour

Big diamonds,
Big blue diamonds,
On her finger she had
Instead of a little band of gold.

Big diamonds,
Big blue diamonds
Tell a story of the love
That the one man could ever hold

She wanted more than I
Had made through the life
So she left me
Sad and lonesome and poor

Big diamonds,
Big blue diamonds,
How they sparkle
But what can they do to warm my heart to its core?

When you're lonesome in the moonlight
For a lover's caress
Big as diamonds
Big blue diamonds
Will surely turn cold.

She wanted more than I
Had made through the life.
So she left me
Sad and lonesome and poor.

Big diamonds,
Big blue diamonds,
I don't want them, oh no.
I want a love behind a band of gold.
