Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

The Hole (CRD)  Randy Travis

[F]A friend of mine bought himself a shovel
Said Iâm gonna tunnel me a mine           [C]

He set out to be a rich man
Hap[C7]piness is what he thought heâd fine            [F]

Got in to deep to see the diamond
Down to dark to see the gold         [C]
[Bb]Now he wonât let go of the shovel     [F]
And he canât d[C]ig out of the hole                [F]

[Bb]Deeper and deeper heâs going[F] down
[Bb]Driving his fut[F]ure right into [G]the ground    [C]
[Bb]He thinks heâs closer [F]the further he g[Bb]oes        [F]
But heâs still[Bb] on the bottom[F]
And he canât [C]dig out of the hole
[F]I tried to throw the man a life line
I tried to send him down a rope         [C]

I donât think he hears me calling
But[C7] everyday I pray and hope        [F]
[F]Somehow he finally gets the message
Every spade of dirt he throws       [C]
[Bb]Only gets him closer to the devil       [F]
And he canât [C]dig out of the hole        [F]

repeat chorus:
[F]Maybe we could learn a little lesson
Maybe thisâll shine a little light      [C]

Cause theirs no healthy way to mess with
The[C7] line between wrong and right         [F]

Use the one chance youâve been given
Cause once your in the ground and cold               [C]
[Bb]Itâs too late to start livin[F]â
You see you canât di[C]g out of the hole

Repeat chorus:

Itâs hell on the bottom

And you canât dig out of the hole
