You saw the sign on a pick-up truck 
And bought a guitar with a borrowed buck 
And you dig it, and you dig it 
They liked your song, they were hot for you 
You got the job, there was work to do 
And you dig it, and you dig it 
 
But waiting, there was someone waiting for you 
Claiming a piece of everything that you do 
It seems I've heard your story all before 
Someone's standing knocking at your door 
Your early morning wake up call 
The bags are packed and in the hall 
The managers ran off with all the money that you made 
 
You get on stage nearly every night 
You work around till you get it right 
And you dig it, and you dig it 
And then you sign for a record deal 
And off you go on the music wheel 
And you dig it, and you dig it 
 
But waiting, there was someone waiting for you 
Claiming a piece of everything that you do 
It seems I've heard your story all before 
Someone's standing knocking at your door 
Your early morning wake up call 
The bags are packed and in the hall 
The managers ran off with all the money that you made 
 
You made the charts and all the hangers on were hanging on 
Flashing knives behind your back 
Living in your money sack 
And you were thinking you got it made 
 
You do the tours and the interviews 
You meet the press and you're in the news 
And you dig it, and you dig it 
You hear your song on the radio 
You see your face on the TV shows 
And you dig it, and you dig it 
 
But waiting, there was someone waiting for you 
Claiming a piece of everything that you do 
It seems I've heard your story all before 
Someone's standing knocking at your door 
Your record isn't selling well 
The tickets to your shows don't sell 
You look around and suddenly 
You find that you've got leprosy 
The taxman's coming after you 
Your lawyer and your girlfriend too 
And the managers ran off with all the money that you made
