I'm Just an Old Chunk of Coal (But I'm Gonna Be a Diamond Someday)
by John Anderson



I'm just an old chunk of coal
But I’m gonna be a diamond some day
I'm gonna grow and glow till I'm so blue pure perfect
I'm gonna put a smile on everybody’s face

I'm gonna kneel and pray every day
Lest I should become vain along the way
I'm just and old chunk of coal now Lord
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day

I'm gonna learn the best words to talk
Gonna search and find a better way to walk yeah
I'm gonna spit and polish my old rough edged self
Till I get rid of every single flaw

Well I’m gonna be the world's best friend
I’m gonna go round shaking everybody’s hand yeah
Oh, I'm gonna be the cotton-picking rage of the age
I'm gonna be a diamond someday

Now I'm just an old chunk of coal
But I’m gonna be a diamond some day
I'm gonna grow and glow till I'm so blue pure perfect
I'm gonna put a smile on everybody’s face

I'm gonna kneel and pray every day
Lest I should become vain along the way
Hey I'm just and old chunk of coal now Lord
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day
