I dug up a diamond, rare and fine
I dug up a diamond in a deep dark mine
If only I could cling to my beautiful find
I dug up a diamond in a deep dark mine

My gem is special beyond all worth
As strong as any metal or stone in the earth
Sharp as any razor or blade you can buy
Bright as any laser or any star in the sky

Maybe once in a lifetime you'll hold one in your hand
Once in a lifetime in this land
Where the journey ends in a worthless claim
Time and again in the mining game

I dug up a diamond, rare and fine
I dug up a diamond in a deep dark mine
Down in the darkness in the dirt and the grime
I dug up a diamond in a deep dark mine
