🎶 Lyrics 🎤

Tony came back to town
With his cap and gown
That they give 'em at the state pen
Breaking and entering will do that
Tony’s Momma says, "he’s only human"

Look what the cat dragged in
From his next of kin
His little sister hugs the Tin Man
Tony, she’s grown
Ain't she pretty in a little black dress

He’s digging up the heart
To know the price he paid

You can hear the train
When you’re in the cage
And you can smell the rain
And you can see the sage
Brush threaten the highway
But you can't drive

And when he finally put the asphalt to the tire
It looked something like Sistene oil and fire
Ripping through the dark
He’s diggin' up the heart

Diggin' up the heart
Diggin' up the heart
Well it ain't that strange
Any boy can change
Diggin' up the heart

One, two, three, four, five
Oh me, oh my
Count the reasons that you shouldn't be messing
With the sons of perdition
Never gonna take you down the straight and narrow
Fever dreaming of a place
That you just can’t get
Like you're burning in a pit
Little brother, you’re lying to yourself
If you think you've changed

It’s just another part
Ain't this something strange
When Tony left they were scratching at the door
In particular, one wanted him more
Her name was Christie
The Queen of Humboldt County
But 3 to 5 is a lifetime at that age
Christie met herself another boy, got engaged
Left him in the dark
He’s diggin' up the heart
Diggin' up the heart
Diggin' up the heart
Well it ain't that strange
Any boy can change
Diggin' up the heart

He’s diggin' up the heart
Diggin' up the heart
With a little luck
With the times get rough
Diggin' up the heart

Now the clerk's got his hands up
But his mind's on the mark
His 38 beneath the register
He’s diggin' up the heart

Diggin' up the heart
Diggin' up the heart
Well it ain't that strange
Any boy can change
Diggin' up the heart
He's diggin' up the heart
Diggin' up the heart
With a little luck
When the times get rough
Diggin' up the heart
Well it ain't that strange
Even boys can change
Diggin' up the heart
