Lyrics

Diggin?

Verse 1
Everybody?s looking for their pot of gold
Their winning ticket to Eldorado
Or the fountain of youth hidden long ago
But there?s no map to show which way to go
A brand new house, a brand new car
Savin? our pennies in a Mason jar
Those self help books and a new guitar
Makin? our wish on a distant star


CHORUS
We keep diggin?
Just like an old dog
We keep diggin?
For that long lost bone
We keep diggin?
For that pot of gold
We keep diggin?
Before our story?s told

Verse 2
Atkins, Creatine, Dr. Phil
A new hair color, that magic pill
Church, nirvana, that bar and grill
The bigger the ride, the bigger the thrill
A better job, a seat in the shade
A front row ticket, yeah catch that wave
Throw a big party on that special day
Cross your fingers that you?ve got it made

CHORUS
Keep diggin?
Just like an old dog
We keep diggin?
For that long lost bone
We keep diggin?
For that pot of gold
We keep diggin?
Before our story?s told

Verse 3
When we sit back at the end of our days
Will our skies be blue or streaked with gray?
When we add up all the blessings God gave
Will we see that we really had it made?
When we meet Peter at the pearly gates
I just know we?ll hear him say
How many blessings does it take?
Are you satisfied for Heaven?s sake?

CHORUS
You kept diggin?
Just like an old dog
We kept diggin?
For that long lost bone
You kept diggin?
For that pot of gold
You kept diggin?
Now your story?s told
Stop diggin?
You?re no dog
So stop diggin?
There?s no long lost bone
Just stop diggin?
For that pot of gold
Just stop diggin?
Your diggin? days are done
