(Paul Kennerley - Emmylou Harris)

As each long day rolls by and falls behind me
In the lonely night there's a peacefulness I've found
Though I'm weary even then when I rise to start again
There'll be a diamond, a diamond in my crown.

I have wasted all that life has laid before me
I have watched as all the green fields turn to brown
But I shall not disavow all these ties that bind me now
Ther'll be a diamond, a diamond in my crown.

Shinning down some day I know brighter than all their streets of gold
When the burdens that I carry I will lay down
And the sorrows I have known I'll see them all be overthrown
Ther'll be a diamond, a diamond in my crown.

Through the passing of the years I will grow stronger
Just as sure as this old world keeps spinning round
Then the closer I will be to my sweetest victory
There'll be a diamond, a diamond in my crown...
This song is from the album "The Ballad of Sally Rose [Warner Bros]".
