You Didn't Dig Deep Enough

2007 Garrett Clevenger

 

Chorus:

E  A                    You didn't dig deep enough. x4

A   E   A   E     You didn't dig deep enough,      my friend.                         You didn't dig to the end.

A   E   B             It's always       farther                  than you think                 it's gonna be.

A   B                    Get back diggin'                           if you think it's worth it.

A   E                      Sometime, though,                       you can make things worse,

B   A   E             but if you wanna reach the end                you got dig deeper,          indeed.

 

E    B    E          The pharohs   of Egypt               were buried under            tons of rock.

E    A    B         but the wealth inside                   led the grave diggers       to unlock.

A   B   E   A    They dug deep down                  into the tomb                     and dug the ancient treasure         that they stole

E    B    E          and hoped the curse would not               make them           forget how to talk.

 

E    B    E          Pirates pillage merchants            out on                                 the open sea.

E    A    B         The famous ones                         we all know                        from history.

A   B   E   A    They dug deep down and hid their chest in the sand        and dug the story their epics command

E    B    E          and hoped they wouldn't lose the map to find the treasure.  It's the key.

 

{chorus}

 

E    B    E          The cover up was bigger            than anyone                      would have known.

E    A    B         If people didn't stand up            and ask,                              "What's goin' on?!"

A   B   E   A    They dug deep down                  and found the truth          and dug the power           anyone can use

E    B    E          and hoped the man would not   retaliate on                         everyone.

 

E    B    E          It's easy            to dig                 yourself                              into a hole.

E    A    B         From a person to a country        if your stuck                      here's something to know:.

A   B   E   A    Dig deeper down and you'll       never get out,     so dig your surrender, "Help!" you gotta shout

E    B    E          and hope you are forgiven         by the one's                       whose soul you stole.

 

{chorus}

 

E    B    E          I'll tell you a secret                       to make your life               easier.

E    A    B         To insure                                       you don't lose                    your lover

A   B   E   A    dig deep down                             into her soul                     and dig what comes next, after the roll

E    B    E          and hope the next morning        you still                              wanna be with her.

 

{chorus}

B  A                       but if you wanna reach the end                you got dig deeper,

B  A                       but if you wanna reach the end                you got dig deeper,

B  A  E                but if you wanna reach the end                you got dig deeper,          indeed.
