lyrics

My woman she’s gone and left one reason
She needed time to play
It looks like I’ve got my freedom
I guess I could do the same
But it’s hard to feel free when every barroom’s
Just another wing of a prison
Well I think I’ll just go and dig me a hole
And take a break from living

I got me a shovel, a pick and an axe
Won’t tell nobody where I’ll be at
No root too rough no rock too stout
Is gonna stop me from digging the ground

At the local cemetery, the people are peaceful
I’m jealous of all of them
Well I think I’ll just go and dig me a hole
And take a break from living

My friends all say you can’t go spending
All your time alone
Cause the sea’s got plenty of top notch fishing
Catch you one and take it home
And they’ve all been down this road I’m rolling
So, to their advice I should listen
But I think I’ll just go and dig me a hole
And take a break from living

I got me a shovel, a pick and an axe
Won’t tell nobody where I’ll be at
No root too rough no rock too stout
Is gonna stop me from digging the ground

I’ve heard all the same cliché’s saying
‘just play the cards that are given’
But I think I’ll just go and dig me a hole
And take a break from living
