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



Hey, 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
And I'm just an old chunk of coal now, Lord
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day

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

I'm gonna be the world's best friend
I'm gonna go 'round shaking everybody's hand
Hey, I'm gonna be the cotton pickin' rage of the age
Yeah, I'ma gonna be a diamond some day

Now I'm just an old chunk of coal
But I'ma gonna be a diamond some day
Hey and I'ma 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
And lest I should become vain along the way
And I'm just an old chunk of coal now, Lord
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day
Hey and I'm gonna be the cotton pickin' rage of the age
Yeah, I'ma gonna be a diamond some day
