Now, I think this is a fair reconstruction of the sentiment into a more linear sentence:
If by digging [a hole to China], I could steal the wind from the sails of the greedy men who ruled the world
[then]
I would dig a hole all the way to China
Okay, so this works:
Unless of course I was there
Then I'd dig my way home
I'm not really sure why it's worth noting that, (if digging a hole from america to china would take the sails out of the greedy men to rule the world) he'd also be willing to start digging that same hole from the opposite direction if he was already on the opposite end, rather than presumably fly from China to America just so he could dig a hole back to China.


Right?
How much of your own time do you waste on a daily basis?
