DIGGIN’ A HOLE by Jeff Prince

Diggin’ a hole is a natural thing to do.
Out in Odessa digging for Texas crude.
Or up in the Klondike searching for buckets of
gold. There’s plenty a good reason for a man to
be diggin’ a hole.

Diggin’ a hole. Diggin’ a hole
No good reason I know I’m just diggin’ a hole

I ain’t no grave digger. I’m no grave robber
Don’t need a well to carry more water. Everybody
I know say, “Hey, man, why you diggin’ a hole?”

I ain’t no pipe line. I ain’t no coal miner. Ain’t trying to tunnel my way down to China. Some
things are hard to explain but Baby, here I go

I’m just diggin’ a hole. Diggin’ a hole
No good reason I know I’m just diggin’ a hole

Diggin’ a hole is a mighty hard thing to do. That sweat starts a flowing from my hat down to my shoes. I got blisters on my fingers and I got a long way to go. Give me some elbo room. Can’t you see I’m diggin’ a hole?

Pick ax is a swingin’ and my shovel is a flying
I’m a workin’ like a dog. I can’t stop trying
Everbody I know say, “Hey, man, was your daddy a mole?”

I’m said, “I’m diggin’ a hole. Diggin’ a hole
No good reason I know
