Diggin' The Sand

 
This old dog ain't seen his day 
but I seen a lot of dreams fade away 
walked a lot of miles to get on home 
now I'm in the backyard digging up some bones 

Late at night when I'm drinking wine 
I let the stars release my mind 
I think about the days when we was young 
I think about the days we used to run 

And the thing I recall the most 
was hitching a ride up the coast 
living on the beach all summer long 
riding the waves and singing songs 

And we ran hand in hand 
we never had no special plans 
and we never found our promised land 
but we were diggin' the sand 
and we were diggin' the sun 
and we were diggin' our times 
and we were diggin' on love 

There was a place we used to hang 
just a little shack where we'd meet the gang 
if there was a band we'd get up and dance 
if there was a girl I'd take a chance 

You were a child, just running wild 
two bare feet, a big ol' smile 
you had your whole life yet to live 
with all your love to give 

And we ran hand in hand 
we never had no special plans 
and we never found our promised land 
but we were diggin' the sand 
and we were diggin' the sun 
and we were diggin' our times 
and we were diggin' on love
