JESTER! Lyr Req: Diggy Liggy Lo (10) lyr. req.: Diggy Liggy Li 12 Jun 98

Yup, back again where the class never fails! Looking for the lyrics to "Diggy Liggy Li" recorded by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (and others?). Its a goofy Cajun sorta tune, but I've never been able to get the words clearly. Can anyone help? Thanks!!!

Subject: Lyric Req: Ain't No Grave

I heard a band playing this old gospel blues tune in Cambridge, MA. Does anybody know the verses? Here's the chorus:

Ain't no grave
Gonna hold my body down
Ain't no grave
Gonna hold my body down.
When I hear that trumpet sound
Gonna rise up out of the ground
Ain't no grave
Gonna hold my body down.

Also, I'm looking for a Cajun tune, possibly by Hank Williams, about two people who fall in love. They have ridiculous names, something like:

Diggy Liggy Lie and Diggie Liggie Lo
Fell in love at the fete e doh (?)
No one else would ever know
So much love for Diggy Liggy Lo.
