Key: D
The G in parentheses is sort of a ghost chord. In the song, 
he doesnt actually go to a G but if you wanted to, you could 
when you play this. 


D                         (G)      D   
Ike had a lesson from the Lord up above 
   D                    A        D 
He gave him a beautiful woman to love 
  D                       (G)  
A place to live, and some land to farm 
D                 A        D  
Two good legs and two good arms 

          D                    (G)       D 
Well, the Devil came sneaking around one night 
  D                          A       D 
Decided he would do a little evil to Ike 
D                  (G)            D 
Figured he hit old Ike where it'd hurt 
      D                      A          D  
So he filled up all of Ike's wells with dirt 


Pre-Chorus: 
     G                    D  
When Ike came out for his morning drink 
         A                           D 
He got a dipper full of dirt and his heart did sink 
       G                            D           G  
But he knew it was the Devil, so he said with a grin 
     D                          A      D 
'God blessed me once and He can do it again 
   D                          A      D  
He blessed me once and He can do it again.' 


Chorus: 
            G                       D 
So when the rain won't come and the crops all fail 
    G                      D 
The cows ain't putting any milk in the pail 
      G                        D            G  
Don't sit around waiting for a check in the mail 
     D                       A           D   
Just pick up your shovel and dig another well 
D                       A           D 
Pick up your shovel and dig another well 


Now me and old Ike's got a lot in common 
The Lord blessed me with a beautiful woman 
Gave me a job, Gave me a home 
Gave me a well to call my own 

Pre-chorus 2: 
When I go out for my morning drink, 
And get a dipper full of dirt and my heart does sink 
But I think of old Ike, and I have to grin 
'God blessed me once, and He can do it again, 
He blessed me once, and He can do it again.'
