lyrics

I wish I was a mole in the ground,
I wish I was a mole in the ground.
If I was mole in the ground,
well I’d route that mountain down.
I wish I was a mole in the ground.

Kimpy wants a nine dollar shawl,
Kimpy wants a nine dollar shawl.
When I come over that hill
with my forty dollar bill
Baby where’ve you been so long?

I’ve been in the pen so long,
I’ve been in the pen so long.
I’ve been in the pen so long
With the rough and rowdy men
Baby that’s where I’ve been so long.

Well I’d never trust a railroad man,
I’d never trust a railroad man.
I’d never trust a railroad man
Well he’d kill you where you stand
And then drink up all your blood like wine.

I wish I was a Lizard in the spring,
I wish I was a Lizard in the spring.
If I was a Lizard in the Spring,
Well I’d hear my baby sing,
I wish I was a Lizard in the Spring,

I wish I was a mole in the ground,
I wish I was a mole in the ground.
If I was mole in the ground,
well I’d route that mountain down.
I wish I was a mole in the ground.

Chris’ trademark sound is at times likened to the magnitude of a full orchestra only to moments later pull audiences to the very edge of their seats to soak in the delicate spider-like touch of his playing. ... more
