Rough Gem  Islands

intro:
F# C# Abm B->C# x2
F# (buildup)
riff:
F# C# B B x2
Th[F#]e world beat you for the s[C#]omething nice
You [B]worked hard, [C#]died poor
[F#]You mined what you [C#]died for
[B]Diamonds di di di di di [C#]uh
[F#]You can whistle my [B]name
It's the mines, in [Ebm]Africa
[C#]That are to blame
[F#]You can Scoop out my [B]brain
Shape it into an [Ebm]ear and then tell [C#]me your pain
F#, riff
[F#]Held death at bay from t[Ebm+]he first day
[B]Stayed awake, [C#]stayed awake
[F#]The rabbit was remo[Ebm]ved under the whole moon
[B]Long bird,[C#] short road
F# B Ebm C# x2
F# C# Abm B x a-bunch
[F#]  
F# B Ebm C# x2
[F#]Dig deep but don't dig too deep
B Ebm Ebm Ebadd2 (x68866) C#
When it's late you'll see the hole is empty and oh so deadly
[F#]They want me raw and [B]smooth like glass
They want it fast but they [Ebm]don't want flaws
Ebm Ebadd2 (x68866)
I'm a girl's best friend
C# C#7 (maybe not a 7, but it helps add to the tension)
Can you cut, I can cut, 'cause I'm a rough gem
[F#]  
F# C# B B x2
[F#]who lives in those [C#]lights in the distance?
[B]Watered down, the rain will [C#]help you out
[F#]I had a dream, it was [C#]all a dream
But it was [B]ruined by the sun shining in [C#]through me
[F#]
