Acres of Diamonds

I've had dozens, maybe even hundreds of requests in the last dozen years or so - for a copy of the sheet music for "Acres of Diamons" by Arthur Smith. Always glad to send an electronic copy to you for free. Just that one composition. I typeset it myself some time ago. You can have a copy if you ask....

Thieves steal your diamonds, your gold melts away, your river of silver will flow to the sea.

A slight amendment, should others seek other verses here. I have read the song as published (in the late 1950's) and there is only one verse. Someone just sent me text for three verses which I can't vouch for. Doesn't mean you can't add verses to a song, but if you want the song as written, it's onl...

acres of diamonds - arthur smith

This is Jay again, the fellow who offered, and is still offering, a copy of Acres of Diamonds which I have retypeset (because I looked for it forever, and could not find it myself - when I did, set it again for my own use). Some have asked me how many verses to this song there are. As far as I can t...

acres of diamonds - arthur smith

Someone very kindly sent me text for three verses which I can't vouch for beyond that it's the same words in verse 1 and chorus, and the rest fit more or less. Maybe they were added later?
