Dig Another Well

(Don Schlitz - Paul Overstreet)

Well Ike had a blessing from the Lord up above
He gave him a beautiful woman to love
A place to live and some land to farm
Two good legs and two good arms
.
Well the devil came sneakinG around one night
Decided he would do a little evil to Ike
Figured he would hit old Ike where it hurts
so he filled up all of Ike's wells with dirt
.
And when Ike went out for his morning drink
He got a dipper full of dirt and his heart did sink
But he knew it was the devil so he said with a grin
God blessed me once and he can do it again.
He blessed me once and he can do it again.

So when the rains don't fall and the crops all fail
And the cows ain't puttin' any milk in the pail
Don't sit around waitin' for a check in the mail
Just pick up the shovel and dig another well.
Pick up the shovel and dig another well.

Now me and old Ike got a lot in common
The Lord blessed me with a beautiful woman
He gave me a job he gave me a home
He gave me a well to call my own.

Now when I go out for my morning drink
And get a dipper full of dirt my heart does sink
But I think of old Ike and I have to grin
Cause God blessed me once and he can do it again.
He blessed me once and he can do it again.

When the rains don't fall and the crops all fail...
And the cows ain't puttin' any milk in the pail
Don't sit around waitin' for a check in the mail
Just pick up the shovel and dig another well.
Pick up the shovel and dig another well.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, the good book says Ike finally won
(Pick up the shovel dig another well)
The devil got tired and he left him alone
(Pick up the shovel dig another well)
All I know someday I'm gonna win too
(Pick up the shovel dig another well)
'Cause the good book tells me what to do
(Pick up the shovel dig another well)
Pick up the shovel and dig another well.

Pick up the shovel and dig another well.
Pick up the shovel and dig another well...


Mirror lyrics:

Pick up the shovel and dig another well...
Pick up the shovel and dig another well.

Pick up the shovel and dig another well.
(Pick up the shovel dig another well)
'Cause the good book tells me what to do
(Pick up the shovel dig another well)
All I know someday I'm gonna win too
(Pick up the shovel dig another well)
The devil got tired and he left him alone
(Pick up the shovel dig another well)
Well, the good book says Ike finally won

--- Instrumental ---

Pick up the shovel and dig another well.
Just pick up the shovel and dig another well.
Don't sit around waitin' for a check in the mail
And the cows ain't puttin' any milk in the pail
When the rains don't fall and the crops all fail...

He blessed me once and he can do it again.
Cause God blessed me once and he can do it again.
But I think of old Ike and I have to grin
And get a dipper full of dirt my heart does sink
Now when I go out for my morning drink

He gave me a well to call my own.
He gave me a job he gave me a home
The Lord blessed me with a beautiful woman
Now me and old Ike got a lot in common

Pick up the shovel and dig another well.
Just pick up the shovel and dig another well.
Don't sit around waitin' for a check in the mail
And the cows ain't puttin' any milk in the pail
So when the rains don't fall and the crops all fail

He blessed me once and he can do it again.
God blessed me once and he can do it again.
But he knew it was the devil so he said with a grin
He got a dipper full of dirt and his heart did sink
And when Ike went out for his morning drink
.
so he filled up all of Ike's wells with dirt
Figured he would hit old Ike where it hurts
Decided he would do a little evil to Ike
Well the devil came sneakinG around one night
.
Two good legs and two good arms
A place to live and some land to farm
He gave him a beautiful woman to love
Well Ike had a blessing from the Lord up above
