Diamonds in the Mine - Live at Isle of Wight Festival, UK - Leonard Cohen

They gave me some money
For my sad and fainted song
They said, the crowd is waiting
Hurry up or they'll be gone
But I could not change my style
And I guess I never will
So I sing this for the poison's snakes
On desvastation hill

And there are no letters in the mailbox
And there are no grapes upon the vine
And there are no chocolates in the boxes anymore
And there are no diamonds in the mine
(And there are no diamonds in the mine)

Well, the lady in blue, she's asking for revenge
The man in white, that's you, says he has no friends
Well, I saw the man in question, it was just the other night
He was beating up a lady where the lions and Christians fight

And there are no letters in the mailbox
And there are no grapes upon the vine
And there are no chocolates in the boxes anymore
And there are no diamonds in the mine
(And there are no diamonds in the mine)

Well, you tell me that your lover has a broken limb
You say you're restless now and it's on account of him
Well, I saw the man in question, it was just the other night
He was beating up a lady where the lions and Christians fight

And there are no letters in the mailbox
And there are no grapes upon the vine
And there are no chocolates in the boxes anymore
And there are no diamonds in the mine
(And there are no diamonds in the mine)

Now there is no comfort in the covens of the witch
There's no easy way can tell you who is poor and who is rich
And the only man of energy, yes the revolution's pride
They said he trained a hundred women just to kill an unborn child

And there are no letters in the mailbox
And there are no grapes upon the vine
And there are no chocolates in the boxes anymore
And there are no diamonds in the mine

And there are no letters in the mailbox
And there are no grapes upon the vine
And there are no chocolates in the boxes anymore
And there are no diamonds in the mine
(And there are no diamonds in the mine)
