Make The Dirt Stick

Nothin' wrong with staying inside
Nothin' wrong staying home tonight
All week long was a world of restless
Whatever it takes for a little peace and quiet
Got a pump be right out back now
I got a well up on the hill
All summer long was rain and water
Sometime surrender to God's will


Whatever it takes you best now surrender
Whatever you know, you gotta tell them quick
Scratchin' the wall with some old barbed wire
Whatever it takes to make the dirt stick
I hear them coming with the crane and hammer
I hear them digging holes in the ground
Feel like there's something bound to take me over
Son do what you can in a mean old town
