Diamonds In The Rough with Mother Maybelle Carter lyrics Johnny Cash (Cash Johnny)

verse (Johnny) While walking out one evening,not knowing where to go just to pass the time away,before we held our show I heard a little mission band,playing with all their might I gave my heart to Jesus,and left the show that night Chorus/With mabelle carter The day will soon be over,and evening will be gone no more gems to be gathered,so let us all press on when jesus comes to claim us ,and says it is enough The diamonds will be shinning,no longer in the rough. verse (Johnny) While reading through the Bible,some wonderous sights i see I read of Peter,James and John by the sea of Galilee and Jesus when he found them,he found them mighty tough they were precious diamonds,to be gathered in the rough Chorus/With mabelle carter The day will soon be over,and evening will be gone no more gems to be gathered,so let us all press on when jesus comes to claim us ,and says it is enough The diamonds will be shinning,no longer in the rough.
