    Let us now praise a carpenter and the things that he made
    CD
     
    And the way that he lived by the tools of his trade
    EmD
     
    I can still hear his hammer singing ten penny time
    CD
     
    Working by the hour till the day he died
    G G (hammer on)
    Oh he was tough as a crowbar, he was quick as a chisel
    DEmD
     
    Fair as a plane and true as a level
    GG
     
    He was straight as a chalkline and right as a rule
    DEmD
     
    He was square with the world he took good care of his tools
    EmD
    Oh he worked his hands in wood from the crib to the coffin 
    CD
     
    With a care and a love you don't see too often
    EmD
     
    He built boats out of wood big boats working in a shipyard
    CD
     
    Mansions on the hill and a birdhouse in the backyard
    G G (hammer on)
    He was tough as a crowbar, he was quick as a chisel
    DEmD
     
    Fair as a plane and true as a level
    GG
     
    He was straight as a chalkline and right as a rule
    DEmD
     
    He was square with the world he took good care of his tools
    EmD
    He said anything that's worth cuttin' down a tree for 
    CD
     
    Is worth doin' right don't the Lord love a two by four
    EmD
     
    Well they asked him how to do some he'd say just like Noah built the ark
    CD
     
    You got to hold your mouth right son and never miss your mark
    G G (hammer on)
    To Be tough as a crowbar, he was quick as a chisel
    DEmD
     
    Fair as a plane and true as a level
    GG
     
    He was straight as a chalkline and right as a rule
    DEmD
     
    He was square with the world he took good care of his tools
    DEmD
     
    He was square with the world he took good care of his tools
