I'M JUST AN OLD CHUNK OF COAL (Billy Joe Shaver) John Anderson Also recorded by : Roy Book Binder; Joan Crane; Stonewall Jackson; Billy Joe Shaver. Hey I'm just an old chunk of coal, But I'm gonna be a diamond some day, I'm gonna grow and glow 'til I'm so blue pure perfect, I'm gonna put a smile on ev'rybody's face. I'm gonna kneel and pray ev'ry day, Lest I should become vain along the way. 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 a better way to talk I'm gonna spit and polish my old rough-edged self, 'Til I get rid of ev'ry single flaw. I'm gonna be the world's best friend, I'm gonna go 'round shakin' ev'rybody's hand Hey I'm gonna be the cotton-pickin' rage of the age, I'm gonna be a diamond some day. Now I'm just an old chunk of coal now Lord, But I'm gonna be a diamond some day, I'm gonna grow and glow 'til I'm so blue pure perfect, I'm gonna put a smile on ev'rybody's face. I'm gonna kneel and pray ev'ry day, Lest I should become vain along the way. Hey I'm just an old chunk of coal now Lord, But I'm gonna be a diamond some day.
