Randy Travis Mining For Coal Lyrics

Last updated:

I've searched the world over all of my life
Just looking for something
To make my love shine
Like a candle that burns in the night
But I came up with nothin'
'Til I looked in your eyes
Deeper and deeper inside.

And all of the treasures
I found in your soul
Was like finding a diamond
When you're mining for coal.

I've been a fool for glitter and gold
And women that sparkle shiny and cold
Like a statue carved out of ice
They shimmer like tinsel
On a blue Christmas night
But they never were quite so bright.

As all of the treasures
That loving you holds
It's like finding a diamond
When you're mining for coal.

I was a miner
And you were a rock in the dust
But you became flawless
When you were you polished by love.

And when I found you
I lost all control
I found me a diamond
Just mining for coal.

And when I found you
I lost all control
I found me a diamond
Just mining for coal...
