Black Diamond

<a href="http://music.owentemple.com/track/black-diamond">Black Diamond by Owen Temple</a>

There's nothing sadder than an empty sidecar,
A train with no engineer
The cop in this town, he hates Elvis,
He's hanging from my rearview mirror
But he never sees it, he's usually drinking beer
Leaves his patrol car parked down here

In Black Diamond
Where the mountains begin and end
Black Diamond
Never one to fit in

My neighbor is a veteran, he's got a doberman
He named her Hope
His pension's guaranteed, but he sells the kids weed
And tells dirty jokes
My sister's in the beauty shop, wants to move on
She's tried to leave but she never stays gone

From Black Diamond
Where the mountains begin and end
Black Diamond
Never one to fit in
Black Diamond
For a Rocky Mountain ring
Oh Black Diamond
I can hear em sing

It's too late now to start again
You always look smarter with your shirt tucked in
Caught between the tables and the jukebox
Between fireworks and let there be rock
Shooter nights and chicken wings
The kids around here will dance to anything

But there's nothing sadder than an empty sidecar,
A train with no engineer
The cop in this town, he hates Elvis,
He's hanging from my rearview mirror
Like the one eared wolf with a green dragon smile
Pour another shot I'm gonna be here awhile

Chorus
