I used to think she was the greatest thing
I really cared, gave her a diamond ring
She said she'd rather die than ever leave me
Well I never saw her face since then
And if the law don't get her then I will-
Four little diamonds

She must be somewhere on the open road
She always said she was a lonely one
She gets you down with her tales of woe
She took me for everything
And if the law don't get her then I will
Four little diamonds

Chorus: I looked around I climbed up high into the dawn
But she was gone with the night
I thought about the things she said
And all the things wed done
But where could she run- she ran away
There's just no answer to give

I keep wonderin about her, day and night
She probably thinks I was a fool- she's right
She don't know it
But I'm gonna keep on searchin for that woman
I'm gonna search everywhere
And if the law don't get her then I will
Four little diamonds

Chorus

I still hear her callin out to me,
I still listen for her endlessly
But it never even crossed my mind she was a cheater
I gotta find where she hides
Cause if the law don't get her then I will -
Four little diamonds
