Diamonds & gold

by Tom Waits


The broken glass
And the rusty nails
Where the violets grow
Say goodbye to the railroad
And the mad dogs of summer
And everything that I know

What some men will do here for diamonds
What some men will do here for gold
They´re wounded but they just keep on climbin´
And they sleep by the side of the road

There´s a hole in the ladder
A fence we can climb
Mad as a hatter
You´re thin as a dime
Go out to the meadow
The hills are agreen
Sing me a rainbo
Steal me a dream

Small time Napoleons
Shattered his knees
But he stays in the saddle for Rose
And all his disciple
They shave in the gutter
And gather what´s left of his clothes

What some men will do here for diamonds
What some men will do here for gold
They´re wounded but they just keep on climbin´
And they sleep by the side of the road

There´s a hole in the ladder
A fence we can climb
Mad as a hatter
You´re thin as a dime
Go out to the meadow
The hills are agreen
Sing me a rainbow
Steal me a dream
