I'm gonna tell you son
I'm gonna tell you son
Gonna tell you something
Gonna make a you run

You remember that night
Your mama died?
I'm gonna tell you now
That, that weren't no suicide

She came out of that mine
That mine she came
Upon this family
Your mother brought great shame

She came out with ol' Stoney
She came with ol' Stone
We'll I shot him down
And I brought your mama on home

Oh the diamonds reign
Oh the diamonds reign
Oh the rained on us that night
Out in the memory lane

Oh I lay her down
By the fireside
Then I strung her up
Made it look like suicide

Oh I loved your mam's
And I love you the same
Now pick up that gun
And honour your family name
Oh I did what I had to do
You gotta do the same
I live you son
Butility don't let those diamonds Reign

(Oh the diamonds reign
Oh the diamonds reign
Oh theyes rained on us that night
Out in memory lane x2)
Oh they ra9ned on us that night
Out in memory lane
