lyrics

Long before the bright lights lined the city streets
hidden in the hillside, a wealth that none could see.
We shoveled deep into the dirt that ran beside a stream.
What we soon discovered was the fortune of our dreams.

There are diamonds in the dust, treasure in the hills.
Just like every one of us, all the same but different still.
Until you take the time and peel away the grime,
you may never find the gold inside.

Word spread like a wildfire, clear across the east.
Many came from mile and miles, left their family.
We dug a mine out in the hill and hired a couple hands.
Before too long, we grew into a couple hundred men.

There are diamonds in the dust, treasure in the hills.
Just like every one of us, all the same but different still.
Until you take the time and peel away the grime,
you may never find the gold inside.

Some walked away before they struck it rich.
It’s funny: what you give is truly what you get.

There are diamonds in the dust, treasure in the hills.
Just like every one of us, all the same but different still.
Until you take the time and peel away the grime,
you may never find the gold inside.
