Verse 1:
Jack of diamonds, Jack of diamonds, take my money
You can have my life of luxury
You can have my precious silver, studded saddle, ohh
But you can not take my soul, can not take my soul today

Verse 2:
Sweet mamma, oh sweet mamma, won't you say you love me
Let me hold you, hold you in my arms
Please tell me I'm not really falling to pieces
Keep me tender mamma, tender now, keep me warm

Verse 3:
Jack of diamonds, Jack of diamonds, I still got my ace
If you want me to do it I can through it, right in your face
Go and take my precious silver, studded saddle, yeah
But you can not take my soul Lord, you can not take my soul today
Jack of diamonds, Jack of diamonds, I'm gonna be alright
