Intro: D C G F D
[D]I loved a girl s[C]he lived out in[G] Pecos pretty as[F] she could [D]be
[D]And I worked the rigs on o[C]ut in Odd[G]essa to give her [F]whatever she [D]needs
[D]But that girls she runs with an [C]oil company [G]bum cause a diamond [F]was not on her
[D]But He left her soon neath the [C]big Loving[G] moon to go out and[F] x-ray the[D] land
[G]Now I sit in my car [C]the new rainbow [G]bar down[D]town
And the [G]frost on the wind sheild [C]shines towards the [G]sky
Like a [D]thousand tiny diamonds in the lights of Loving County
[D]Well I walked in that bar and I [C]drank myself [G]crazy thinkin bought [F]her and that
[D]When in walked a woman lookin [C]richer than[G] sin and ten years worth of [F]work on
her [D]hand
[D]Well I followed her home and when [C]she was [G]alone I put my [F]gun to her [D]head
[D]And I dont recall what [C]happened next at [G]all but now that rich [F]woman she's [D]dead
[G]Now I drive down the highway ten [C]miles from my [G]sweet baby's [D]arms
And the[G] moon is so bright it [C]don't look like [G]night
[D]and the diamond how it sparkles in the lights of Loving County
[D]Well she opened that door and I [C]knelt on the [G]floor
and I put that [F]ring in her [D]hand
[D]And she said I do and s[C]he'd leave with me [G]soon to the rigs out in [F]south [D]Alabam
[D]Well I told her to hide that [C]ring there [G]inside and wait till the [F]timin was [D]
[D]And I drove back home and [C]I was alon[G]e cause I thought that [F]she'd [D]understood
[G]The next night an old friend just [C]called me to [G]wish us both [D]well
said he'd [G]seen her downtown [C]sashay'in [G]around
[D]and her diamond how it sparkled in the lights of Loving County
[D] [C] [G] [F] [D] 
Well that sheriff he found me out wonder'n all around El Paso the very next
[D]You see I'd lost my mind on that [C]broken white [G]line
before I even [F]reached [D]Balmaray
[D]Now she's in Ft.Worth and she's [C]just givin [G]birth
to the son of that [F]oil company [D]man
[D]And they burried that poor old [C]sheriffs dead wife
with the ring that I [F]stole on her [D]hand
[G]Sometimes they let me look [C]up at that [G]East Texas [D]sky
[G]and the rain on the pines oh [C]lord how it [G]shines
[D]like my darlins little diamond in the lights of Loving County
