Get a Little Dirt on Your Hands Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
When I was a little boy
Daddy used to say to me "Son,"
"We got a lot of land
We got a lot of work to be done"
Verse 2
Go get your marbles, put 'em in the house
Tear down your castles in the sand
Come with your pappy to the cotton patch
Get a little dirt on your hands
Get a little dirt on your hands
Verse 3
Get a little dirt on your hands, son
Get a little dirt on your hands
If you're gonna grow up to be a big, big man
Get a little dirt on your hands
Get a little dirt on your hands
Verse 4
Well, I reached twenty-one
And I thought I was a pretty big wheel
I left the country for the city
Met a slicker with a shady deal
Verse 5
He said, "hold up the bank, boy and take all the money
And run as fast as you can
The only way you'll ever get along in this world
Is to get a little dirt on your hands
Get a little dirt on your hands
Verse 6
Get a little dirt on your hands, son
Get a little dirt on your hands
If you want to grow up to be a big, big man
Get a little dirt on your hands
Get a little dirt on your hands"
Verse 7
Well, it's four in the morning
And the warden is calling' my name
He said he's teaching' me a lesson
Now he's making' me go work in the rain
Verse 8
Dig that ditch, boy, fill it up
I'm wanting you to understand
The only way to straighten out a guy like you
Is to get a little dirt on his hands
Get a little dirt on his hands
Verse 9
Hey, David
Got to get a little dirt on those hands, boy
Yeah, if you want to grow up to be a big, big man (if you wanna grow up to be a big, big man)
You better remember what old Whispering Bill told you in his song (you got to get a little dirt on your hands)
Get a little dirt on those hands
Verse 10
Little dirt on your hands, son
Get a little dirt on your hands
If you want to grow up to be a big, big man
Get a little dirt on your hands
Get a little dirt on your hands
Get a little dirt on your hands, son
I got a little dirt on my hands
Verse 11
Get a little dirt on your hands
