Randy Travis – The Hole lyrics

A friend of mine bought himself a shovel
Said I鈓 gonna tunnel me a mine
He set out to be a rich man
Happiness is what he thought he鈊 fine

Got in to deep to see the diamond
Down to dark to see the gold
Now he won鈚 let go of the shovel
And he can鈚 dig out of the hole

Deeper and deeper he鈙 going down
Driving his future right into the ground
He thinks he鈙 closer the further he goes
But he鈙 still on the bottom
And he can鈚 dig out of the hole
I tried to throw the man a life line
I tried to send him down a rope
I don鈚 think he hears me calling
But everyday I pray and hope
Somehow he finally gets the message
Every spade of dirt he throws
Only gets him closer to the devil
And he can鈚 dig out of the hole

Repeat chorus:
Maybe we could learn a little lesson
Maybe this鈒l shine a little light
Cause theirs no healthy way to mess with
The line between wrong and right

Use the one chance you鈜e been given
Cause once your in the ground and cold
It鈙 too late to start livin?
You see you can鈚 dig out of the hole

Repeat chorus:

It鈙 hell on the bottom
And you can鈚 dig out of the hole
