TODD SNIDER Digger Dave's Crazy Woman Blues Lyrics
Digger Dave was a friend of mine
Got himself into a bit of a mess one time
Mindin' his business, drinkin' his wine
When he heard a shotgun blast
It wasn't anything he hadn't heard before
But then that girl Christine came cryin' through his door
Screamin', Yukon Jack told me to get rid of this thing fast
Yukon Jack and Digger Dave sounds like a couple of names
That I might've just made up
But I'm tellin' you, this is the truest story I tell

She set down the gun, took off runnin'
Digger Dave followed and soon came up on that death wish kid from Michigan
He's layin' there shot up all to hell
He got a death wish since they come up from the lower forty-eight
And they'd all be drinkin' vodka for two days straight
When the fist fight started, it was already too late
For anyone to keep any peace
No one could remember what the fight was about but
By all accounts the kid pulled the first gun out
In self-defense beyond a shadow of a doubt
Is what they all agreed to tell the police
Digger Dave said, No, y'all are on your own with this
Walked over to A.J.'s and drank himself pissed
Cop yellow tape was strung out all over the place
When he finally come walkin' back out
A victim of circumstance if ever there was one
Last time I saw him he said that he had just done
A year and a half for what he called lettin' that crazy bitch into his
House
Got a new song about it though, sang it for me behind the club
It said, "Crazy woman blues, I got the crazy woman blues
I got the crazy woman blues
I never shoulda let her into my house"
Said it's like, "Crazy woman blues, I got the crazy woman blues
I got the crazy woman blues
I never shoulda let her into my house"

Only one way to know how far is just far enough
You gotta go a little bit too far, and then back up
Back up and hope hard luck ain't on your side
The town council had already planned to meet
About all the drinkin' and druggin' down there on Brunell Street
About a little bit too late I guess
At least for that kid that died

Crazy woman blues, crazy woman blues
Crazy woman blues, I never shoulda let her into my house
I got the crazy woman blues, the crazy woman blues
Crazy woman blues, I never shoulda let her in the house
