Cracker Jack Diamond 
Recorded by Don Williams
Written by Ronny Scaife and Neil Trasher

Well he spent that summer going door to door

With a can of gas and an old lawn mower
That’s a sure fire way to make a buck when you’re fourteen

Well he made a block with no luck at all

Then he spotted a place where the weeds were tall
With a young girl sitting on the porch eating ice cream

Deep in the pocket of his grass stained jeans
Was some caramel corn and a plastic ring
Leftover from the week before
G7 F G7
Momma didn’t wash them thank the lord

C F C Am G7
Just like a Cracker Jack Diamond you never know when your gonna find one
C F G7 F
They found love from that day o--n
C F Am G7 F
The hand of fate put them together their hearts will stay forever young
G7 C
Like a Cracker Jack Diamond

Well it’s been five years since he gave her his prize

Now the sparkle’s gone but not in their eyes
And he’s wanting to tell her what’s been on his mind lately

He said girl I ain’t rich but I’ve been saving up

A little ever day till I had enough
Before he finished he said you know I will baby

Deep in the pocket of his holy jeans
Was money for the preacher and a diamond ring
He took her back to that old front porch
G7 F G7
Slipped it on her finger and he thanked the Lord

Repeat #3

Now once a year she takes it out but it won’t fit her hand
F G7
But she wears it in her heart because that’s where it all began
