What's odd is that Whitley's incredible style allows him to assume that we know what 'making the dirt stick' means. If you don't, it typically means making the mud stick to the walls. The song evokes the simple life, with it's banjo sounding guitar and it's lyrics about the bare essentials of life. RIP I do not own any of this or any other Chris Whitley song.

Chris Whitley - Make the Dirt Stick

There's nothing wrong with staying inside.
There's nothing wrong staying home tonight.
All week long was a world of restless.
Whatever it takes for a little peace and quiet.

I got a pump it being right out back, now.
I got a well up on the hill.
All summer long was rain and water.
Sometimes surrender to God's will.

Whatever it takes, you best now surrender.
Whatever you know, you gotta tell them quick.
Scratching the wall with some old barbed wire.
Whatever it takes to make the dirt stick.

I hear them coming with the crane and hammer.
I hear them digging these holes in the ground.
I feel like there's something bound to take me over.
Son, do what you can in a mean old town!

Whatever it takes, you best now surrender.
Whatever you know, you gotta tell them quick.
Scratching the wall with some old barbed wire.
Whatever it takes to make the dirt stick.

I said whatever it takes, you best now surrender.
Whatever you know, you gotta tell them quick.
Scratching the wall with some old barbed wire.
Whatever it takes to make the dirt stick.

Amen, Chris. God's speed.
