Gravedigger Lyrics - Dave Matthews Band and Dave Matthews

Review The Song (10)



Cyrus Jones 1810 to 1913
Made his great grandchildren believe
You could live to a 103
A hundred and three is forever when you’re just a little kid
So, Cyrus Jones lived forever

Gravedigger
When you dig my grave
Could you make it shallow
So that I can feel the rain
Gravedigger

Muriel Stonewall 1903 to 1954
She lost both of her babies in the second great war
Now, you should never have to watch your only children lowered in the ground
I mean you should never have to bury your own babies

Gravedigger
When you dig my grave
sponsored links
Could you make it shallow
So that I can feel the rain
Gravedigger

Ring around the rosey
Pocket full o'posey
Ashes to ashes
{Musical intro}
We all fall down

Gravedigger
When you dig my grave
Could you make it shallow
So that I can feel the rain
Oh Gravedigger

Little Mikey Carson '67 to '75
He rode his bike like the devil until the day he died
When he grows up he wants to be Mr. Vertigo on the flying trapeze
Oh, 1940 to 1992--

Gravedigger
When you dig my grave
could you make it shallow
So that I can feel the rain
Grave digger
When you dig my grave
Could you make it shallow
So that I can feel the rain
I can feel the rain
I can feel the rain
Gravedigger
When you dig my grave
Could you make it shallow
So that I can feel the rain
Gravedigger
Gravedigger

This song is just amazing. My stepdad died recently and he is the one that really got me into Dave. This was one of our favorite songs by DMB and whenever I hear it I think about him. I love you Scott DeShaw and Dave you are the best!

when my dad died this is the only song i would listen to. dave mathews voice is the only thing that can soothe my pain. whenever im sad i just think about his voice and the meaning behind all his music. how someone can be that creative and love what he does. i hope one day i can go to one of his concerts:) my sister said he puts on the best shows.

so good | Reviewer: Mayim | 6/11/09

Yoshi, you wrote: "...because i've heard that the part about Mickey Carson dieing was due to Dave Mathews hitting him in his car..."
How is that even possible? From the dates listed in the song, that would mean they were born in the same year. 75 would have made them both 8 years old. He hit him with a car when he was driving at 8? I suppose it's possible, but I don't think probable.
Regardless, I love this song and my 3 year old feels the same way. She asks to hear it over and over again. She hums the melody. Good to know she appreciates great music at this age.

true story | Reviewer: Yoshi Aomori | 3/26/09

Gravedigger is a deep song. it gives me shivers everytime i listen to it. Partly because i've heard that the part about Mickey Carson dieing was due to Dave Mathews hitting him in his car. so the song is kind of a tribute to the boy. definitely a song to reccomend to everyone you meet.

I've only gone to 4 or 5 Dave concert's but I always hope that they do this song and Don't Drink the Water. I pretty much know the words completely by memory. If you are looking for a good song to put on a playlist for a friend or something, this should be one of the first added.

Absolutely awesome | Reviewer: Claudine | 6/8/07

The lyrical content and composition of gravedigger leaves me breathless everytime i listen to it. A big thank you to DMB for doing the song. It touches my soul...

when your only children are lowered in the ground

Amazing... | Reviewer: ChelseaM | 3/31/07

I love Dave Matthews. He is absolutely amazing. I thought the same thing when I was 5 years old and started to listen to him with my father. Amazing.
