Welcome to the Mudcat! You did a good thread title for your first song. You will find you get a quicker response if you post a separate thread for each song you request. This site gets thousands of hits daily, but not everyone looks at every thread. A title of Diggy Diggy Lo would have gotten a quick response. You thought it was Hank Williams. I did not think so, but I did think it was country. The best site I know of for country lyrics is the COWPIE Bunkhouse. I found the lyrics below listed there by searching for "Diggy diggy lo".
DIGGY LIGGY LO
Recorded by Buck Owens (with Don Rich on fiddle/vocal)
Words and music J. D. Miller
CAPO: 2nd Fret/KEY: A/PLAY: G
[G] Diggy Liggy Li and Diggy Liggy Lo
Fell in love at the [D7] fais-do-do
The pop was cold and the coffee *chaud
For Diggy Liggy Li and Diggy Liggy [G] Lo.
Diggy Liggy [C] Li loved Diggy Liggy Lo
Everyone [G] knew he was her beau
No one [D7] else could ever show
So much love for Diggy Liggy [G] Lo.
There's a place they find romance
Where they do the Cajun dance
Steal a kiss with ev'ry chance
Show their love with ev'ry glance. Refrain
Finally went to see her Pa
Now he's got a Pa-in-law
Moved out where the Bayou's low
Now he's got a little Diggy Liggy Lo. Refrain
Enjoy the music!
