Notes: Please forgive some of my chord names. I have no idea what
the proper names should be. Also, there is a lot of hammering-on
and pulling-off going on throughout the song, which I haven't
bothered to show here, but which, if you watch her ACL video,
you will quickly pick up. I don't think listening to her CD
will help much with all the background instruments drowning
out her guitar sound.
Intro: G/D G D G G/D G D A D
(repeat same progression throughout each verse)
1: As a little girl I came down to the water
With a little stone in my hand
It would shimmer and sing and we knew everything
As a little girl I came down
2: But in a little while I got steeped in authority
Heaven only knows what went wrong
There is nothing so cruel than to bury that jewel
When it was mine all along, I'm gonna find it
[A]You're [C]shi[A]ning[D], I can [C]see [D]you
[A]You're [C]smi[A]ling[D], that's[C] eno[D]ugh
[A]I'm [C]hol[A]ding [D]on to [G]you, like a [D]diamond [G]in [G/D]the r[D]ough
3: Every now and then I can see that I'm getting somewhere
Where I have to go is so deep
I was angry back then and you know I still am
I have lost too much sleep, but I'm gonna find it
(repeat Refrain)
Like a diamond in the rough
4: In my dreams I go down by the water
With a little girl in my arms
And we shimmer and sing, and we know everything
In my dreams I go down
Like a diamond in the rough
