Subject: Origins: Diamond Joe--'diamond studded jaw?'
Well, not really origins so much as interpretation. A friend and I are in the process of using this as the basis of a parody, and this has been bugging me for awhile.


My friend had been singing it "jar" and thinking it was a really dumb line. I knew it was "jaw" but still don't think it makes sense, so there must be something about the reference that I just don't understand.

Little help?
