Hole In The Ground

Bernard Cribben

4:4 Key:C

[C6]//[Gaug] x 4

[C6]There I [Gaug]was a - [C6]digging this [Gaug]hole,
[C]Hole in the [E7]ground, so [Am]big, and sort of [D7]round it was,
And [G7]there was I, digging it [E7]deep,
It was [B7]flat at the bottom, and the [E7]sides were steep!
When, [Em]along comes this [D7]bloke in a bowler,
Which he [G7]lifted, and scratched his [C]head, [Gaug]woh,
He [C6]looked down the [Gaug]hole, [C6]poor demented [Gaug]soul, and he [G7]said

(spoken)Do you mind if I make a suggestion?

[C]Don't dig [Gaug]there! [C]Dig it else - [Gaug]where!
You're [C6]digging it [Gaug]round, and it [C]ought to be [C7]square,
The [F]shape of it's wrong, it's [E7]much too long,
[A7]And you [D7]can't put a hole where a [Gaug]hole don't be - [C]long!"[Gaug]

(spoken)I ask you! What a liberty, eh?
Nearly bashed him right in the bowler!

[C6]Well there was [Gaug]I, [C6]stood in me [Gaug]hole
[C]Shovelling [E7]earth [Am]for all I was [D7]worth
There was [G7]him, standing up [E7]there
So [B7]grand and official with his [E7]nose in the air
So I [Em]gave him a [D7]look sort of sideways and I [G7]leaned on my shovel and [C7]sighed
[C6]Well I lit me a [Gaug]fag and [C6]having took a [Gaug]drag I [G7]replied

[C]I just couldn't [Gaug]bear, to [C]dig it else[Gaug]where
I'm [C6]digging it [Gaug]round co's I [C]don't want it [C7]square
And if you [F]disagree it don't [E7]bother me
[A7]That's the [D7]place where the [Gaug]hole's gonna [C]be [Gaug]

[C6]Well there we [Gaug]were, [C6]discussing this [Gaug]hole
A [C6]hole in the [Gaug]ground so [Am]big and sort of [D7]round
Well it's [G7]not there now, the ground is all [E7]flat
And [D7]beneath it is the bloke in the [Gaug]bowler [C]hat

And [Gaug]that's [C]that.
