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!!!

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 d’oh (?)
No one else would ever know
So much love for Diggy Liggy Lo.
