Song History
The following commentary about this song is found in the Some Devil packaging: "My father's been dead for more than 20 years. I still want him to be proud of me."

In the Spring Tour of 2002, a new intro into PNP > Rapunzel was introducted on 4.26 known as the Gravedigger Intro. This intro developed into the powerful anecdotal song "Gravedigger" in the Summer Tour in 2002, as one of the main feature Dave Solo songs in the encore.

Along with The Long Black Veil, Eh Hee, The Maker, So Damn Lucky, and Stay or Leave, this is one of just six songs that have been played by DMB, Dave & Tim, Dave & Friends, and Dave solo.
