Your new motivational anthem.


Don't give up,
do the best that you can do
or the long days and nights will surely get to you and when you feel
you've really had enough
remember you're a diamond in the rough,
diamond in the rough
still a lump of coal,
Diamond in the rough
what will be your goal
Diamond in the rough
gotta see it through,
Diamond in the rough,
do the best that you can do
Whoa, diamond in the rough
Stay on top
keep your vision clear
or your dream
might just disappear and when you think
you've really had enough
remember you're a diamond in the rough
Diamond in the rough,
Oh, diamond in the rough,
Stop being who you were,
so you can become who you are
who you are, who you are,
Come on Diamond in the rough
Whoa, Diamond in The Rough,
are you a Diamond In The Rough.....

While he was already well-established as a slick guitarist, what Chuck Schaeffer really wanted most was recognition as a great songwriter, to front his own band and create his own sound. That was the birth of CSB.
Their songs are overflowing with compelling melodies, clever, infectious hooks, great solos and thought-provoking lyrics. It's immediately interesting and unmistakably original.
