I can dig it, he can dig it She can dig it, we can dig it They can dig it, you can dig it Oh, let's dig it Can you dig it, baby I can dig it, he can dig it She can dig it, we can dig it They can dig it, you can dig it Oh, let's dig it Can you dig it, baby
The sun beaming down between the leaves Grazin' in the grass is a gas, baby, can you dig it And the birds dartin' in and out of the trees Grazin' in the grass is a gas, baby, can you dig it
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim I had to stop for the night There she stood in the doorway; I heard the mission bell And I was thinking to myself, "This could be Heaven or this could be Hell" Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way There were voices down the corridor, I thought I heard them say...
We made all the hotspots, my money flowed like wine Then the low-down southern whiskey, yea, began to fog my mind And I don't remember church bells, or the money I put down On the white picket fence and boardwalk On the house at the end of town
May the good Lord be with you down every road you roam. And may sunshine and happiness surround you when you're far from home. And my you grow to be proud, dignified and true. And do unto others as you'd have done to you. Be courageous and be brave. And in my heart you'll always stay
I agree - given all the songs about dating, I wouldn't have thought it was so difficult to think of a song with "date" in the lyrics, and HA! I actually thought to myself that Taylor Swift must have a song with the word in it, because basically that's all she sings about, and surely there'd be a country song with the word "date".
I did think of one, though, courtesy of BP, who has developed a love of what she calls "retro" music - music from about 10-20 years ago that I used to listen to - bands like Nirvana, Soundgarden, Red Hot Chili Peppers...and Pearl Jam. Here's one from the sixties that Pearl Jam ressurected, and made a bigger hit than the original:
from Last Kiss by Pearl Jam (originally Wayne Cochran)
We were out on a date in my daddy's car, We hadn't driven very far. There in the road straight ahead, A car was stalled, the engine was dead.
