Big Blue Diamonds (Van Morrison)

Blue diamonds, big blue diamonds on her finger Instead of a little band of gold Big diamonds, big blue diamonds tell the story Of the love that no one man could hold Oh, she wanted more than I had money to buy So she left me sad and lonely I am told Big diamonds, big blue diamonds Now she'll trade them For a love behind a little band of gold Blue diamonds, big blue diamonds how they sparkle But what can they do to warm your heart and soul When you're lonesome in the moonlight and you want loving Big blue diamonds don't they seem so reckless and bold I gladly do my part oh, to mend a broken heart But a love that's warmed over soon grows cold Big diamonds, big blue diamonds I don't want them, no Oh for a love behind a little band of gold
