Lyrics

I want to buy you diamonds as big as the hailstones
That are flattening fields and bruising bones
But with a little luck and a change in weather
Things are gonna get better in these hard lands
Then I’ll buy you diamonds as big hailstones
For every finger on both your hands
I want to buy you silver as white as the lightning
That’s been setting these dry cornfields ablaze
But with a little luck and a change in weather
Things are gonna get better in a thousand ways
Then I’ll buy you silver as white as lightning
For accessorizing in our better days
I want to see you smiling like I saw you smiling ear to ear on our wedding day
Without the worries weighing you down since we up and left our hometown to go homesteading Oklahoma way
Now we’ve been walking on a fine line between the hardest and a hard time–
And I just might’ve picked the wrong place for us to set up stakes
But with a little luck and a change in weather
I’ll make it up to you darling whatever it takes
I’ll make it up to you darling whatever it takes
