Digging for gold with a dirty hand
Buzzard’s eye caught on a weary man
My footprints leaving deep scars in the sand
Rest my eyes on a pretty girl
But I’m a dying man in a dying world
By the sand or the devil’s hand my feet will burn

Digging for gold with a broken spade
Forget the empty threats Mother always made
About God and Hell and what lies in my grave
Rest my eyes on a mountain side
But I’ll stop in the field where my father lies
Buried deep in the dirt he left behind

I’ll keep my secrets in the chamber of my gun
But I’d give them up to anyone
And I’ll keep my demons in the safety of my home
‘Cause I just can’t bear to live alone

Mama and the preacher got a brand new goal
They coming down tomorrow just to make me whole
Daddy and the devil both avoid that fold
Better send the fear of God for this forgotten soul
