Diggy

Lyrics: Scarekrow and DeLacey
Music: Scarekrow and DeLacey

Played by Scarekrow and DeLacey with the New Riders of the Purple Sage.

In the autumn time when trees turn to golden shades of brown
The things that come back to you in your own way
And you walk back to the track of brand new day

When you come back to your shady grove
All the people come down, all those kids that you know
And you walk back around to see what took from the ground

Diggy Diggy doo-bah, Diggy doo-wah
Oh Diggy Diggy day, Diggy Diggy cut along
No Diggy do you dig the day
Diggy Diggy do-wah do-wah do, do what you're wanna do
Diggy Diggy do-wah, Diggy do-wah
Diggy Diggy down, Diggy Diggy cut along
No Diggy coming from the ground
Diggy Diggy do-wah do-wah do-wah
Do what you wanna do

When, later on, as the night rolls in, it's getting lost (note 1)
Need a boy, walks through the forest stands
And he walks to the mound, the fountain of truth of life

He came upon a little old man
Sitting on a stump with a banjo in hand
And he's singing out to the land
And he said, my boy, when you go down the road
Don't take it slow

Old man Diggy was his name (note 1)
We wore his love and life, and played for the fame
Of the game, and he came back awhile to see
What comes in another mile

Singing
Diggy Diggy doo-wah, Diggy doo-wah
Oh Diggy Diggy day, Diggy Diggy come along
No Diggy do you dig the day
Diggy Diggy do-wah do-wah do, do what you wanna do
Diggy Diggy do-wah, Diggy do-wah
Diggy Diggy down, Diggy Diggy come along
No Diggy coming from the ground
Diggy Diggy do-wah do-wah do-wah
Do what you wanna do

Diggy Diggy doo-ah, Diggy doo-wah
No Diggy Diggy down, Diggy Diggy cut along
No Diggy coming from the ground
Diggy Diggy do-wah do-wah do-wah
Do what you wanna do
