    Lyrics

    I build houses and barns and a birdhouse or two
    Studied my blue prints and plans
    I like wood that don't argue, nails that drive straight
    Tools that don't skin up my hands

    I have followed my call from Texas to Maine
    Bangin' out churches and chairs
    Struttin' the snow and the sun and the rain
    Bangin' out rafters and stairs

    And I'm slow, but I'm steady
    I prize the work more than the pay
    I'm rough and I'm ready
    Livin' the carpenter's way
    Livin' the carpenter's way

    Tomorrow you'll find me up on some roof
    Watchin' the sun play the hill
    Rye in my coffee, love in my heart
    Doin' what carpenter's will

    I'm slow, but I'm steady
    I prize the work more than the pay
    I'm rough and I'm ready
    Living the carpenter's way
    Living the carpenter's way
    Living the carpenter's way
