(G)Well Ike had a blessing from the (C)Lord up (G)above He gave him a beautiful (D)woman to (G)love A place to live and some (C)land to (G)farm Two good legs and (D)two good (G)arms Well the (G)devil came sneakinG (C)around one (G)night Decided he would do a little (D)evil to (G)Ike Figured he would hit old (C)Ike where it (G)hurts So he filled up all of Ike's (D)wells with (G)dirt Pre- Chorus And when (C)Ike went out for his (G)morning drink He got a (D)dipper full of dirt and his (G)heart did sink But he (C)knew it was the devil so he (G)said with a (C)grin God (G)blessed me once and he can (D)do it (G)again. He blessed me once and he can (D)do it (G)again. Chorus So when the (C)rains don't fall and the (G)crops all fail And the (C)cows ain't puttin' any (G)milk in the pail Don't (C)sit around waitin' for a (G)check in the (C)mail Just pick up the shovel and (D)dig another (G)well. Pick up the shovel and (D)dig another (G)well. Now me and old Ike got a lot in common The Lord blessed me with a beautiful woman He gave me a job he gave me a home He gave me a well to call my own. Now when I go out for my morning drink And get a dipper full of dirt my heart does sink But I think of old Ike and I have to grin Cause God blessed me once and he can do it again. He blessed me once and he can do it again. When the rains don't fall and the crops all fail... And the cows ain't puttin' any milk in the pail Don't sit around waitin' for a check in the mail Just pick up the shovel and dig another well. Pick up the shovel and dig another well. Well, the good book says Ike finally won (Pick up the shovel dig another well) The devil got tired and he left him alone (Pick up the shovel dig another well) All I know someday I'm gonna win too (Pick up the shovel dig another well) 'Cause the good book tells me what to do (Pick up the shovel dig another well) Pick up the shovel and dig another well. Pick up the shovel and dig another well. Pick up the shovel and dig another well...
