Sawing Song

Jean-Francois Millet

I tell you boys
Ain’t nothing like a sharp saw
I tell you girls
What it is to make the big chips fly
I tell you son
Ain’t nothing like hard work
I tell you pop
Don’t you see we get all we need
I tell you friend
Ain’t nothing like getting straight
And I’m getting straight
So move them logs boys
Sharpen them chains girls
See the big chips fly son
Won’t you get on board pops
Gonna sing this song friend
Sing it all day long

      1. What, just haven’t used much this “winter”?
        Careful and keep the nose of the bar straight in the cut. Don’t let the side of the nose push the sides of the cut too hard or else it will kick hard. Otherwise it’s awesome.
