RHINESTONE IN THE ROUGH

So you say youíre giving up on love

Cause your lifeís been torn apart

By Diamond Boys who donít know nothiní

About the ways of a womanís heart

Well donít you think itís time you lived outside

That little box theyíve put you in

Cause a Rhinestone In The Rough like me

Is all you need to get it going again

Iíll never lead you on and never let you down

 

Now I ainít got the latest cell phone

And I drive a beat-up car

I donít wear no fancy clothes

And make my living in a bar

But my heart is true as ruby

And my love is fine as pearl

You can best believe Iíll treat you right,

Wonít you be my precious girl?

Iíll never lead you on and never let you down

 

Cause when it comes right down to living

You know love is all weíve got

So donít throw it all away

Without taking one more shot

 

Now the trouble with a diamond is

You donít know if itís real

And if it is thereís always someone else

Out lookiní to make a steal

Well the road to love ainít paved with gems

Or superficial stuff

So donít you think itís time to take a chance

On a Rhinestone In The Rough

Iíll never lead you on and never let you down
