Diamonds & Gold - Tom Waits

words to study

The broken glass

And the rusty nails

Where the violets grow

Say goodbye to the railroad

And the mad dogs of summer

And everything that I know


What some men will do here for diamonds

What some men will do here for gold

They're wounded but they just keep on climbin'

And they sleep by the side of the road

There's a hole in the ladder

A fence we can climb

Mad as a hatter
