A Diamond in Your Mind

Amazing words

author Tom Waits/Kathleen Brennan / singer Solomon Burke

Best words from "Always Keep a Diamond in Your Mind," a song with intensely original and provocative lyrics:

She's got the milk of human kindness and the fat of the lamb
Scared like a baby, but she drives like a man
She lives outside of Natchez where she operates a crane
She's like a wrecking ball no longer connected to the chain

Oh Zerelda Samuel said she almost never prayed
Said she lost her right arm, blown off in a Pinkerton raid
Then they lashed her to a windmill with old "3-fingered Dave"
Now she's 102 drinking mint juleps in the shade

Everybody, always keep a diamond in your mind

(italics added)

You can hear Waits at

Or for a more fulfilling version try Solomon Burke:
