lyrics

One of these days I'm gonna dig up Ed Sullivan
tie him down with packing tape in the back seat of an old Honda car
We'll ride from the heart of Ohio to the brink of Minnesota
catch Midwest lightning bugs in a 10 gallon mason jar

One of these days I'm gonna dig up John Rockefeller
roll our own cigarettes all night until we can't see our hands
eat smokehouse barbecue from a shack in Alabama
beat out Tchaikovsky in rusted iron pots and pans

One of these days I'm gonna dig up Walt Whitman
bury him again and then dig him up one more time
haul him out to watch the sun set on the Delta
hike up a spiny pecan tree and throw down a line

One of these days I'm gonna dig up Tom Jefferson
dress him in drag and watch Citizen Kane
play hopscotch far and deep in the tallest redwoods
Indian leg wrestle him for the last bottle of grain

One of these days I'm gonna dig up Ed Sullivan
tie him down with packing tape in the back seat of an old Honda car
We'll ride from the heart of Ohio to the brink of Minnesota
catch Midwest lightning bugs in a 10 gallon mason jar
