Thread Name: Info Req: Black Diamonds (Jez Lowe)
Subject: RE: Jez Lowe's Black Diamonds
I don't know specifically what he means about clubs, but since all four suits are mentioned in the first verse (counting the black diamonds), he's obviously trying to draw a parallel between a deck of cards and coal mining - probably that going down in the mines is very much a matter of luck.
