Sam Bush - Diamond Joe lyrics

Now there's a man you'll hear aboutMost anywhere you goAnd his holdings are in TexasAnd his name is Diamond Joe
And he carries all his moneyIn a diamond-studded jarHe never took much troubleWith the process of the law
I hired out to Diamond Joe, boysDid offer him my handHe gave a string of horsesSo old they could not stand
And I nearly starved to death, boysHe did mistreat me soAnd I never saved a dollarIn the pay of Diamond Joe
Now his bread it was corn dodgerAnd his meat you couldn't chawNearly drove me crazyWith the waggin'of his jaw
And the tellin' of his storyMean to let you knowThat there never was a rounderThat could lie like Diamond Joe
Now, I tried three times to quit himBut he did argue soI'm still punchin' cattleIn the pay of Diamond Joe
And when I'm called up yonderAnd it's my time to goGive my blankets to my buddiesGive the fleas to Diamond Joe
