The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Diamond Joe

Diamond 4 Joe come and get me, My 1 wife now done quit me

Refrain:Diamond Joe, better come 5 get me, Diamond 1 Joe

I'm gonna buy me a sack of flour, Cook a hoecake every hour

I'm gonna buy me a piece of meat, Cook me a slice once a week

I'm gonna buy me a sack of meal, Take a hoecake to the field

I'm gonna buy me a jug of whiskey, Gonna make my baby frisky

I'm gonna buy me a jug of rum, Gonna give my Ida some
