[Chorus]
G
Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow, dig a hole in the cold, cold ground
                                         C           G     F           G
Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow, to lay my Lily down, lay my Lily down

[Riff]

[Verse]
G
Well the first time I saw my newborn girl, she was pullin' on her mama's hair
                                           F            G
The sun comin' through the window, and I'd known her anywhere 

[Chorus]
G
Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow, dig a hole in the cold, cold ground
                                         C           G        F           G
Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow, to lay my Lily down, to lay my Lily down

[Riff] Oh to lay my Lily down, lay my Lily down

[Verse]
G
Wake up, wake up my sleeping child, come and learn to laugh at hell
                                                F                G 
Cause the feral fire in your daddy's blood runs in your veins as well

[Chorus]
G
Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow, dig a hole in the cold, cold ground
                                            C           G     F           G
Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow, oh to lay my Lily down, lay my Lily down

[Riff]

[Verse]
G
The last time I saw little Lily, she was starin' at the windswept sea
                                         F            G
With her two pearl-handled pistols and a banjo on her knee

[Chorus]
G
Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow, dig a hole in the cold, cold ground
                                         C           G      
Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow, to lay my Lily down

[Chorus]
G
Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow, dig a hole in the cold, cold ground
                                            C           G     F           G
Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow, oh to lay my Lily down, lay my Lily down

[Outro]
C           G     F           G           C           G
Lay my Lily down, lay my Lily down, oh to lay my Lily down
