Dig A Hole
Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Dropkick Murphys

Mr. Hitler, Mr. Hitler,
Tell me what are you going to do;
Declared war on Uncle Sammy,
Bit off more than you could chew.

DIG A HOLE, DIG A HOLE IN THE MEADOW,
DIIG A HOLE IN THE COLD, COLD GROUND;
DIG A HOLE, DIG A HOLE IN THE MEADOW,
WE’RE GONNA LAY YOU FASCISTS DOWN.

Once I seen them fascists,
In a little Belgian town;
There was trouble, there was sorrow,
And the bombs were raining down.

DIG A HOLE, DIG A HOLE IN THE MEADOW,
DIIG A HOLE IN THE COLD, COLD GROUND;
DIG A HOLE, DIG A HOLE IN THE MEADOW,
WE’RE GONNA LAY YOU FASCISTS DOWN.

Mr. Hitler talked to Göring,
And here’s what he did say;
I can’t figure out these goddamn snows,
They’re too damn hot for me.

DIG A HOLE, DIG A HOLE IN THE MEADOW,
DIIG A HOLE IN THE COLD, COLD GROUND;
DIG A HOLE, DIG A HOLE IN THE MEADOW,
WE’RE GONNA LAY YOU FASCISTS DOWN.
