Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Diamond Smiles  Boomtown Rats



[E]Traffics wild tonight
Diamond smiles her cocktail [A]smile
Tonight she’s in heavy dis[B]guise
She looks at her wrist to clock the [E]passing time
[E]Weathers mild tonight
She wonders will they notice her [A]eyes
She wonders will her glamour sur[B]vive
And can they see she’s going down a [E]third time
[E]Oh everybody tries
It’s Dale Carnegie gone [A]wild
But Barbara Cartland’s [B]child
Long ago perfected the [E]motionless glide
[E]And in the low voltage noise
Diamond seems so sure and so [A]poised
She shimmers for the bright young [B]boys
And says ‘love is for others but for [E]me it destroys’
The girl in the cake
Jumped out too soon by mistake
Somebody said the whole things half baked
And Diamond lifts her glass and says ‘Cheers’

She stands to one side
There’s no more to this than meets the eye
Everybody drinks Martini dry
And talks about clothes and the latest styles

Chorus
[E]Oh, oh they said she [A]did it with grace
They said she [B]did it with style
They said she [A]did it all
They said be[B]fore she died
Whoa, [A]whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,
[B]I remember Diamond’s [E]smile

Nobody saw her go
They said they should have noticed ‘cause her dress was cut so low
Well it only goes to show
Ha, ha how many real men any of us know

She went up the stairs
Stood upon the vanity chair
Tied her lame belt around the chandelier
And went out kicking at the perfumed air

Chorus
[E]Oh, oh they said she [A]did it with grace
They said she [B]did it with style
They said she [A]did it all
They said be[B]fore she died
Whoa, [A]whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,
[B]I remember Diamond’s [E]smile
Na, na, na, na, na, na
(This is repeated over and over again to a recurring 2 bar pattern of E, A, B and E)

This is my first go at this so please forgive any mistakes. I play this using
some palm muting. Its a brilliant little tune, from long ago. Enjoy!
