I shook hands with the president and the pope in Rome
I've been to parties where I've had to be flown
This taught me everything is sacred, nothing is profane
Money is something you throw off of the back of a train

Always keep a diamond in your mind
Always keep a diamond in your mind
Wherever you may wander
Wherever you may roam
Always keep a diamond in your mind

Steam of the gravy with little fried pearls
Floating like a necklace on a beautiful girl
And Chalmers said thanks for the food and the land
And something about God I just don't understand

Always keep a diamond in your mind
Always keep a diamond in your mind
Wherever you may wander
Wherever you may roam
Always keep a diamond in your mind

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

Zerelda Samuel said she ain't never prayed
Since her right arm was blown off in the Pinkerton raid
They lashed her to a windmill with three-fingered Dave
Now she's 102 and drinking juleps in the shade

Always keep a diamond in your mind
Always keep a diamond in your mind
Wherever you may wander
Wherever you may roam
Always keep a diamond in your mind
