“I told you on the day we wed
I was gonna love you ‘til I’s dead
made you wait ‘til our wedding night
that’s the first and the last time I’ll wear white

So if the ties that bind ever do come loose
tie ‘em in a knot like a hangman’s noose
cause I’ll go to heaven or I’ll go to hell
before I’ll see you with someone else

Put me in the ground
put me six foot down
and let the stone say

– Here lies the girl whose only crutch
was loving one man just a little too much –
if you go before I do
I’m gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig two

Well, it won’t be whiskey, it won’t be meth
it’ll be your name on my last breath
if divorce or death ever do us part
the coroner will call it a broken heart

So put me in the ground
put me six foot down
and let the stone say

– Here lies the girl whose only crutch
was loving one man just a little too much –
if you go before I do
I’m gonna tell the gravedigger
that he better dig two
dig two, oh, oh

I took your name when I took those vows
(took those vows)
I meant ‘em back then and I mean ‘em right now
oh, right now

If the ties that bind ever do come loose
if “forever” ever ends for you
if that ring gets a little too tight
you might as well read me my last rites

And let the stone say
– Here lies the girl whose only crutch
was loving one man just a little too much –
if you go before I do
gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig, uh!

There’ll be a stone right next to mine,
we’ll be together ‘til the end of time
don’t you go before I do
I’m gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig two

I told you on the day we wed
I was gonna love you ‘til I’s dead”.

Citazioni.

Better Dig Two is a song recorded by American country music group The Band Perry. It was released in October 2012 as the first single from their second album, Pioneer. The song was written by Brandy Clark, Shane McAnally and Trevor Rosen. The song is a mid-tempo in which the female narrator tells her husband that, should he die before she does, she would rather die and be buried next to him. She also threatens that if he betrays her, she’ll kill him and then kill herself: “If the ties that bind ever do come loose / If forever ever ends for you / If that ring gets a little too tight / They might as well read me my last rites / Cause I’ll go to heaven or I’ll go to hell / Before I’ll see you with someone else”. The song is in A Dorian (i.e., an A minor scale with the sixth tone raised by a half-step). Kimberly Perry‘s vocals range from A3 to C5. The main accompaniment is banjo, electric guitar, and percussion.
The song received positive reviews from music critics. Billy Dukes of Taste of Country gave the song three and a half stars out of five, writing that “cast in the shadow of the dark and stormy production … the gesture isn’t sweet and romantic, but sort of unnerving”. Matt Bjorke of Roughstock gave the song four stars, saying that “in addition to featuring Kimberly Perry‘s dynamic vocals we have a lound/soft [sic] melodic dynamic with banjos, mandolins, fiddles and electric guitars mixed in with a rock attitude and cries of steel guitars as well”. Ben Foster of Country Universe gave the song a B grade, calling it “one of the most interesting and organic-sounding new tunes with a shot at radio airplay”. Writing for Urban Country News, Liv Carter gave the song a ‘thumbs up,’ praising the “very modern, yet very rootsy, country sound”. The music video was directed by Declan Whitebloom and filmed in Nashville. It premiered on CMT on December 4, 2012. “Better Dig Two” was performed at Billboard Music Awards on May 19, 2013. “Better Dig Two” debuted at number 9 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the week of November 17, 2012. It also debuted at number 53 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart for the week of November 17, 2012. It also debuted at number 57 on the Canadian Hot 100 chart for the week of November 17, 2012. It has sold 1,457,000 copies in the US as of June 2013″.
