about

Black Jake & the Carnies' Quick'n'Dirty Garage Singles #2 -- Dig a Hole! -- celebrates the second annual Jimmy Hoffa Day. Every July 30th on the anniversary of Jimmy's disappearance, we're asking everybody within earshot to dig a hole somewhere...anywhere! We have to find him eventually! Recorded live in Billy's garage and unmastered, the way God intended music to be. Dig a Hole!

lyrics

Dig a hole, dig a hole, dig a hole!
Dig a big old hole cause you never know
Everybody dig a big hole (make it low)
Dig a hole for jimmy Hoffa day!

Back in July 30, 1975
Jimmy Hoffa disappeared from all our lives
don't wanna waste no time on the FBI
Dig a hole for Jimmy Hoffa Day!

Grab a shovel, grab a friend, grab a beer or ten
Down Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, & Michigan
Everybody ante up and pitch right in
Dig a hole for jimmy Hoffa day!

Been digging for years and the Feds are vexed
Figure anyplace is as good as the next
don't make Joe taxpayer write the check
Dig a hole for jimmy Hoffa day!

Is he on a Waterford farm? [He ain't there!]
In the Raleigh House dumpster? [He ain't there!]
In a Jersey City Landfill? [He ain't there!]
Dig a hole for Jimmy Hoffa Day!

Is he in Giants Stadium foundation? [He ain't there!]
Is he under a pool in Hampton Township? [He ain't there!]
Is he under Frank Sheerer's floorboards? [He ain't there!]
Dig a hole for Jimmy Hoffa Day!

Is he on Hidden Dreams Farm? [He ain't there!]
Is he in a 55-gallon drum shipped to Japan? [He ain't there!]
Is he in your backyard???
Dig a hole for Jimmy Hoffa Day!
