WHO’S BEEN DIGGIN’ (THE GARDEN BLUES)
Written by: Mark Brine
Who’s been diggin’ down ... in my ground ...
Plantin’ seeds in my garden when I ain’t around
Who’s that stranger who’s been messin’ around
1. Someone I don’t know been getting’ downright dirty
‘n thinkin’ what I don’t know won’t hurt me
Ya, some green-thumbed fool thinks he’s playin’ it cool
But when I catch up with him, he’s gonna have some broken tools
Ya, tell me ...
2. Seems like whenever ya fence somethin’ in
Everybody’s gotta get right in it
The prettier the spread ... the more ya need t’ defend it
Always wantin’ what they can’t have, ‘til the reaper comes around
‘n catch them in the act with them old plants down ... ya ...
