(Paula Moore)

Granddaddy, Granddaddy! Tell me please, tell me about old times!
Granddaddy, Granddaddy! What was it like, working the coal mines?
You rise in darkness, never see the light into the belly of eternal night.
Give us this day our daily crust to greet the demons of the dust.

And I say dig down, dig deep working, working like a slave!
Dig down, dig deep! Dig away your dignity!
Dig down, dig deep! Well, a man sure can, a man sure can
A man sure can dig his own grave, dig his own grave!

Granddaddy, Granddaddy! Tell me why all men are not born free!
Some are rich and most are poor, why must that be?
Some find the answer in religion, others turn to philosophy.
I myself have no opinion, I just got ten mouths to feed.

And I say dig down, dig deep working, working like a slave!
Dig down, dig deep! Dig away your dignity!
Dig down, dig deep! I hope and pray my soul to save!
Dig down, dig deep! Well, a man sure can, a man sure can
A man sure can dig his own grave!

Granddaddy, Granddaddy! Why do your hands tremble when you speak?
This song is from the album "Give In To Love".
