The Carpenter
By John Conlee
Written By Guy Clark


[Verse 1]
       Em                           D 
Let us now praise a carpenter & the things that he made
        C                        D 
And the way that he lived by the tools of his trade 
      Em                            D
I can still hear his hammer singin' ten penny time
C                            D
Workin' by the hour till the day he died


[Chorus 1]
       G
He was tough as a crowbar, he was quick as a chisel
D                   C         G
Fair as a plane and true as a level
       G
He was straight as a chalkline and right as a rule
       D                                  C           G
He was square with the world he took good care of his tools


[Verse 2]
       Em                           D 
He worked his hands in wood from the crib to the coffin
        C                        D 
With a care and a love you don't see too often
      Em                            D
He built boats out of wood, big boats workin' in a shipyard
C                            D
Mansions on the hill and a birdhouse in the backyard


[Chorus 2]
       G
He said anything that's worth cuttin' down a tree for
D                   C         G
Is worth doin' right, don't the Lord love a two by four
       G
If you ask him how to do somethin', he'll say just like Noah built the ark.
       D                                  C           G
You got to hold your mouth right son and never miss your mark.
