Better Dig Two

Album: Pioneer (2012)

  • I told you on the day we wed
    I was gonna love you 'til I's dead
    Made you wait 'til our wedding night
    That's the first and the last time I wear white

    So if the ties that bind ever do come loose
    Tie them in a knot like a hangman's noose
    'Cause I'll go to heaven or I'll go to hell
    Before I'll see you with someone else

    Put me in the ground
    Put me six foot down
    And let the stone say:

    Here lies the girl whose only crutch
    Was loving one man just a little too much
    If you go before I do
    I'm gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig two

    Well,
    It won't be whiskey, won't be meth
    It'll be your name on my last breath
    If divorce or death ever do us part
    The coroner will call it a broken heart

    So put me in the ground
    Put me six foot down
    And let the stone say:

    Here lies the girl whose only crutch
    Was loving one man just a little too much
    If you go before I do
    I'm gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig two

    Dig two
    Ooh, ooh

    I took your name when I took those vows
    I meant 'em back then and I mean 'em right now,
    Oh, right now

    If the ties that bind ever do come loose
    If forever ever ends for you
    If that ring gets a little too tight
    You might as well read me my last rights

    And let the stone say:

    Here lies the girl whose only crutch
    Was loving one man just a little too much
    If you go before I do
    Gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig, uh!

    Heavy stone right next to mine,
    We'll be together 'til the end of time
    Don't you go before I do,
    I'm gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig two

    I told you on the day we wed
    I was gonna love you 'til I's dead Writer/s: BRANDY LYNN CLARK, SHANE MCANALLY, TREVOR ROSEN

  • Jennifer from Fort Collins, CoI love the veiled threatening undertone of this song! Love me or else. Mostly sweet but a little bit of psycho I will kill you if you ever leave me.
  • Brenda Jenkins from Ranger, TxI love this song! There has never been any other song that has ever truly expressed exactly how I feel about my fianceé George. Thanks Band Perry for recording this song & expressing my feelings for me in it, it's great!
  • Camille from Toronto, OhAlthough I love many of them, this is my favorite of The Band Perry's hits so far. One reason is because I've never heard lyrics quite like this. Poetically strung together, they describe a woman's psychotic obsession with the man she married. The somewhat frenzied sound of the violin heightens the feel of the song. I just love it.
