The Hole
   ------Randy Travis

A friend of mine bought himself a shovel
Said Iam gonna tunnel me a mine
He set out to be a rich man
Happiness is what he thought head fine

Got in to deep to see the diamond
Down to dark to see the gold
Now he wonat let go of the shovel
And he canat dig out of the hole

Deeper and deeper heas going down
Driving his future right into the ground
He thinks heas closer the further he goes
But heas still on the bottom
And he canat dig out of the hole
I tried to throw the man a life line
I tried to send him down a rope
I donat think he hears me calling
But everyday I pray and hope
Somehow he finally gets the message
Every spade of dirt he throws
Only gets him closer to the devil
And he canat dig out of the hole

[Repeat chorus:]

Maybe we could learn a little lesson
Maybe thisall shine a little light
Cause theirs no healthy way to mess with
The line between wrong and right

Use the one chance youave been given
Cause once your in the ground and cold
It's too late to start livin?
You see you canat dig out of the hole

[Repeat chorus:]

It's hell on the bottom
And you canat dig out of the hole
