Black diamonds took my breath away
they brought me to my knees
I've passed from young to old my friend
so listen if you please
when you get that taste in your lungs
you'll come back for more
and you'll wear it like a badge
for that's what hidden treasure's' for

My name is McNamara
I'm no leader of a band
and if you've got mouths to feed
I'm sure you'll understand
my wife she gave me 3 dear sons
and all but one are gone
and when I look him in the eye
they say it won't be long


I had a back as strong as rock
and 10 fingers too
a twinkle in a rogueish eye
that went from black to blue
but everytime we came up
we'd leave a little soul
never knowing that we'd need it
on the day that we got old

so if you're coming for me
look for the hair of gray
and the ghost of those who never got old
you'll find me either way

A fire in the winter
some whiskey when I'm dry
the weakness to fall asleep
before my wife begins to cry
they say the Lord does provide
but gets lost below the ground
lots of men look just like me
in this Pennsylvania town
