Verse 1:

Eb                Bb      F
 Why boasteth thy-self, o heathen men?
Eb       Bb                  F
 Playing smart and not being clever.
             Eb             Bb
I say you're working iniqui-ty,
            F            F7
To A-chieve vanity, if A-so A-so,
        Eb          Bb                     F     F7
But the goodness of Jah-Jah, en-dureth for-ever.

Chorus 1:

               Eb  Bb   Bb7
If you are the big tree,
           F     Bb   Bb7

To cut you down.

Verse 2:

Eb             Bb           F
 These are the words, of my Master;
Eb  Bb               F
 No weak heart shall prosper.

    Eb                  Bb
And whosoever diggeth a pit,
      F           F7
Shall fall in it, fall in it.
    Eb                  Bb
And whosoever diggeth a pit,
      F           F7
Shall fall in it, (fall in it).

Chorus 2:

               Eb  Bb   Bb7
If you are the big tree,
           F     Bb   Bb7
We are the small axe, (sharp and ready),
         Eb      Bb     Bb7
Ready to cut you down, (well sharp),
   F       Bb   Bb7
To cut you down.

 These are the words, of my Master;

Telling me that, no weak heart shall prosper.

    Eb                  Bb
And whosoever diggeth a pit,
      F           F7
Shall fall in it, bury in it.
    Eb                  Bb
And whosoever diggeth a pit,
      F           F7
Shall bury in it, (bury in it).

Chorus 3:

               Eb       Bb   Bb7
If you are the big, big tree,
           F     Bb   Bb7
We are the small axe.
