Thread Name: Info Req: Black Diamonds (Jez Lowe)
Subject: Jez Lowe's Black Diamonds
I have the words to Jez Lowe's song Black Diamonds but I don't understand the first verse: "Oh clubs will make you wonder, so don't make that mistake/Spades are made for digging boys and hearts will only break" Do clubs and spades have to do with the suits of playing cards? What does it have to do with coal mining?
