down in a ditch lyrics – diffie joe

i’m runnin’ this shovel way down in a ditch
when you’re down in a ditch it’s a son of a gun
any fool knows you’ll never get rich
when you’re down in a ditch in the tennessee sun

all i got to show is blisters and sweat
blisters and sweat and minimum pay
i’m just tryin’ to get out of debt
and buddy i bet you, i make it someday

well i wish that i was the man with the clipboard
sittin’ in the shade with an rc cola
makin’ calls on the cellular phone
and yellin’ down at me to keep my b*tt movin’

but i’m runnin’ this shovel way down in a ditch
when you’re down in a ditch it’s a son of a gun
any fool knows you’ll never get rich
when you’re down in a ditch in the tennessee sun

someday you’ll see me workin’ that clipboard
sittin’ in the cab of a cool silverado
tuned in to a country station
rollin’ down the window just to holler out orders

to the fool with the shovel way down in a ditch
when you’re down in a ditch it’s a son of a gun
everybody knows you never get rich
working down in a ditch in the tennessee sun

i’m runnin’ this shovel way down in a ditch
when you’re down in a ditch it’s a son of a gun
any fool knows you’ll never get rich
working down in a ditch in the tennessee sun

way down in a ditch in the tennessee sun
dig it
oh, its hot out here
[incomprehensible] rc cola
