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]When you ask how I've b[D]een here with[Em]out you
I like to s[C]ay, "I've been fine," and I d[G]o
But we b[C]oth know the truth is hard to c[G]ome by
And if[Em] I told the tr[C]uth, that's not quite tr[D]ue
CHORUS: Some days are d[G]iamonds,[C] some days are sto[G]nes
Sometimes the [Bm]hard times won't leave me al[C]one[D]
Sometimes the c[G]old wind[C] blows a chill in my b[G]ones[Em]
G D(tacet) G | Gsus4 |
Some days are diamonds, some days are stones
[G]Now the face that I s[D]ee in the mir[Em]ror
More and m[C]ore is a stranger to m[G]e
More and m[C]ore I can see there's a d[G]anger
In bec[Em]oming what I n[C]ever thought I'd [D]be
CHORUS (then play an 'E' chord after end of chorus and change keys
to 'A':)
3RD CHORUS: Some days are d[A]iamonds,[D] some days are st[A]ones
Sometimes the [C#m]hard times won't leave me al[D]one[E]
Sometimes the c[A]old wind[D] blows a chill in my bo[A]nes[F#m]
A E(tacet) A | Asus4 | A |
Some days are diamonds, some days are stones
