I'm just an old chunk of coal (not a ride report)

Yep, I know it is not a ride report but shareable with family and friends outside the forum so I used this avenue. I'll live if it is nuked.

Old Chunk of Coal (tune covered by many, but it took a red dirt cowboy to pen it.).




Hey I'm just an old chunk of coal
Image
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day
Image
I'm gonna grow and glow till I'm so blue green pure perfect
I'm gonna put a smile on everybody's face
Image
I'm gonna kneel and pray every day
Lest I should become vain along the way
Image
I'm just an old chunk of coal now Lord
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day

I'm gonna learn the best way to walk
Gonna search and find a better way to talk
Image
I'm gonna spit and polish my old rough edged self
Till I get rid of every single flaw
Image
I'm gonna be the world's best friend
Gonna go round shaking everybody's hand
Image
I'm just an old chunk of coal
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day

I'm gonna be the cotton pickin' rage of the age
I'm gonna be a diamond some day

I'm just an old chunk of coal
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day
