Dig Two Graves

Album: Around the Bend (2008)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This portrait of love and devotion among a couple "till death do us part" was written by Ashley Gorley and Bob Regan. Gorley also has writing credits for Carrie Underwood, "Don't Forget To Remember Me" and "All American Girl" and Trace Adkins' "You're Gonna Miss This."
  • Randy Travis told The Tennessean July 15, 2008 about this song. He said: "It made me think of something Vern Gosdin would have done years ago. The title is a little deceiving. When you hear 'Dig Two Graves,' it could have gone in two directions. It's really a love song, saying basically, 'If you go before me, I might as well go, because I would have no reason for me staying.'"
