Hole

from Road Songs by Alex McMurray

lyrics

lots of people talking about the bones they’re digging
digging up the big man’s yard
while everybody else is hanging from the rigging
they don’t wanna work so hard
talk about the time when they we’re flush
with everything they stole
now everybody need a place to hide somewhere
it’s high time we’re digging us a hole
we’re digging us a hole
digging us a deep dark deep dark hole
digging us a hole
we’re digging us a hole
digging us a deep dark deep dark hole
now some folks talking ‘bout they do so well
still they’re only digging up a hole

talk about the time in Bay St. Louis
me and old JD
six to six for six bucks an hour
giving it away for free
like it was meant to be
i said “JD won’t you hand me down a bucket?”
he just stood and shrugged
told me the sun ain’t never gonna rise
’til this hole gets dug
digging us a hole
digging us a deep dark deep dark hole
digging us a hole
digging us a hole
digging us a deep dark deep dark hole
tell me the sun ain’t never gonna rise
still we’re digging us a hole

looking at the holes up and down my street
everywhere you see
i think about ‘em like they was my old friends
and they’ve always been there for me
but one of there days well that’ll be the day
somebody’s gonna give a damn
i hope to hell that ain’t never gonna happen ‘cause i wouldn’t know who i am
digging up a hole
digging up a deep dark deep dark hole
digging up a hole
digging up a hole
digging up a deep dark deep dark hole
pretty good times up & down my street
still everybody got a hole
