Diggy Diggy Hole, Song Sheets for Bardic Circles


May 4, 2017 by Rua Lupa

The SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism – an international Pre-1600’s Living History Group) often has bardic circles, which involve singing songs, playing music, and telling stories, usually around the glow of a campfire. We often like to bring old songs back to life and create new songs that are reminiscent of the old. But sometimes we like to have a bit of fun and sing modern songs that have enough flavor of the old to fit in, such as “Misty Mountain” from Lord of the Rings. I had the pleasure to hear a chorus of men sing it one night, and by golly did you get chills.

Now some songs are not as popular, or do not have the lyrics as readily available for public singing. So I decided to create and share one such song that is a fun one to sing – “Diggy Diggy Hole” by Simon Lane ‘Honeydew’. And not only share a printable song sheet, but I also had fun by making it ‘feel more authentic’ by having a version that is written in Futhark – a Norse alphabet, because most stories we encounter about Dwarves originated from Norse stories. The words on that version are still English and spaced the exact same way as the Latin Alphabet version so you can directly learn how to read Futhark! Ideally this would be printed double sided just for that purpose.

To aid in learning how the song is sung, below the song sheets is the associated music video. Enjoy!
