"Some Days Are Diamonds" as performed by John Denver
Brought to you by Mike Schweisthal []

Chords used: G:320003 Gsus4:320013 D:XX0232 Em: 022000 C:X32010 Bm: X24432

Notes:  This song sounds best on a twelve string...the key change (from G 
to A) near the end isn't necessary if you don't feel like playing it that 
way...also, this isn't exactly how John Denver does it...I cut out a few 
chords at the end of the chorus...a '|' mark indicates a measure 
break...enjoy this great song!--Mike

INTRO:  | G | Gsus4 | G | Gsus4 |

G                      D            Em
When you ask how I've been here without you
           C                            G
I like to say, "I've been fine," and I do
        C                              G 
But we both know the truth is hard to come by
      Em            C                       D
And if I told the truth, that's not quite true
                             G       C                 G
     CHORUS:  Some days are diamonds, some days are stones
                   Bm                          C    D
     Sometimes the hard times won't leave me alone
                    G       C                     G    Em
     Sometimes the cold wind blows a chill in my bones
                    G      D(tacet)              G | Gsus4 |
     Some days are diamonds, some days are stones
G                    D            Em
Now the face that I see in the mirror
          C                     G
More and more is a stranger to me
          C                        G
More and more I can see there's a danger
      Em            C                D   
In becoming what I never thought I'd be

     CHORUS (then play an 'E' chord after end of chorus and change keys 
            to 'A':)
                                 A       D                A
     3RD CHORUS:  Some days are diamonds, some days are stones
                   C#m                         D    E
     Sometimes the hard times won't leave me alone
                    A       D                      A    F#m 
     Sometimes the cold wind blows a chill in my bones
                    A      E(tacet)             A | Asus4 | A |  
     Some days are diamonds, some days are stones
