I've got a shovel and I've got a pickaxe I'm standing here digging this hole in the ground I might take something out I might leave something in there it just keeps getting bigger as I work my way down A three pound hammer and cold chisel can't chase off these demons that's running around in my head It ain't always working but I won't give up trying though my head's made of rubber and my feet's made of lead Well she looks out the window but she can't see the farmer When you're driving the combine get off the damn phone After all these years she takes now to run off just hoping that the circus might feel more like home What started out raining is now snowing down sideways as it spits in our faces and we head for the trees If you asked me to leave I might walk away with you though it feels like I'm losing my grip by degrees
