Hey man when the sun comes up
Dig a tunnel underneath the riverbed
And what you find down there
If it’s good you bring it to your foreman
He’s gonna tell you what to do

Hey man when the sun comes up
Dig a tunnel underneath the riverbed
And what you find down there
If it’s good you bring it to your foreman
He’s gonna tell you what to do
He’s gonna tell you what to do
‘Cause man it ain’t up to you

Notes
I play a lot of guitar in my down time, and write a lot of licks and and parts that that never turn into finished songs. Most of the time, I’m playing around in idle moments with a several distinct and fairly developed ideas, but many of the songs that I post to this site are invented from whole cloth in the breath just before I sit down to record them. I put off writing the ones that I really like. I have two ideas percolating at the moment that I wasn’t brave enough to write this week. One of them could be really great, and I put off finishing it last week as well. In its stead, this song is playful and has a good lick. If I wasn’t going to finish the one I really like, I wanted to offer up something enjoyable. It’s about labor and authority. It’s about digging. In the coming weeks I hope to dig a little deeper and finish the other other one.
