Diamonds & Rust" is a song written, composed, and performed by Joan Baez. It was written in November 1974 and released in 1975. Baez has stated that the lyrics refer to her relationship with Bob Dylan.

Album Diamonds & Rust. Diamonds and Rust Lyrics. Well I'll be damned Here comes your ghost again But that's not unusual It's just that the moon is full And you happened to call And here I sit Hand on the telephone Hearing a voice I'd known A couple of light years ago Heading straight for a fall.

Diamonds & Rust is a 1975 album by Joan Baez. Baez is often regarded as an interpreter of other people's work, and on this album she covered songs written or played by Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, The Allman Brothers, and Jackson Browne The title track was covered by British heavy metal band Judas Priest on their 1977 album Sin After Sin, and has since been one of their staples in live performance

This is the Monarch Pressing of Diamonds & Rust, denoted by the triangle in the runouts. Includes colored cardstock inner sleeve with lyrics. Joan apologizes to the authors for any discrepancies between lyrics of songs as they appear on this album and their original versions.

In this song, Joan Baez is singing to her former lover Bob Dylan, fondly reminiscing about their 1960s affair. Released as a single, this track became only her second top 40 hit in the States, and her biggest self-composed hit (her other hit came in 1971 with "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down. Baez said that this gave her inspiration to write "Diamonds & Rust," and that she lied to Dylan, telling him it was about David Harris, to whom she was married from 1968-1973. Bob Dylan rarely reveals much about his songs, but his track "Queen Jane Approximately" is most likely his take on his relationship with Baez. Blackmore's Night covered this song for their 2003 album Ghost of a Rose. More songs from Joan Baez. More songs that are autobiographical. More songs with jewelry or precious stones in the title.

With the Vietnam War winding down, Joan Baez, who had devoted one side of her last album to her trip to Hanoi, delivered the kind of commercial album A&M Records must have wanted when it signed her three years earlier. But she did it on her own terms, putting together a session band of contemporary jazz veterans like Larry Carlton, Wilton Felder, and Joe Sample, and mixing a wise selection from the work of current singer-songwriters like Jackson Browne and John Prine with pop covers of Stevie Wonder and the Allman Brothers Band, and an unusually high complement of her own writing.

My mother had one of her LPalbums that she bought in the States in the ’60s. I played it all the time when I was a little girl. I couldn’t contain my smile as I beheld the ripped and faded album cover again. It is said that this song, Diamonds and Rust, is about her relationship with Bob Dylan. I didn’t know that they were an item before. Where in the world have I been? Anyway, I read somewhere that theirs was a passionate and turbulent love affair that ended awfully. She composed this song after she got a surprise call from him.
