  1. Hey There Boys

From the recording Midnight at the Hilltop Hotel

Written in Gilead, Maine while swinging a hammer.

Lyrics

Hey There Boys
Hey there boys from the woods of Maine.
We're out there workin' on the farm again.
We're laughin' and we're workin' and we're carrying on.
Tooth and nail.
Hammer and saw.
That old timer is a workin' man.
He's got a tool in his head and a thought in his hand.
Sometimes he grabs the stick and wheel.
He's hauling that load just keeping it real.
(Chorus)
And for lunch time well we all get free sunshine.
And the birds and the breeze all that's for free.
And sometimes we get to thinking,
As the world shifts swiftly sliding.
And we hang about the tailgate and have a beer.
Tooth and nail.
Diesel and gear.
When he met her he was glad he found her.
'Bout a hundred children gather around.
She must have those nerves of steel.
About a hundred children right at her heels.
(Chorus)
And for supper time well we gets conversation.
But it takes a couple hours put the tools away.
And sometimes we get to thinking,
As the world slips slowing sinking.
And we hang about the tailgate and have a beer.
Break out the wine all the children are here.
When the sun sinks low on the woods of Maine.
When the hills are all on fi re again.
When the hammer don't fall and the wheel don't turn.
Comes the pleasure for which we all yearn.
(Chorus)
Because in the evening time
well the world brings on the silence.
And silence is the only gold that's free.
And sometimes we get to thinking.
And sometime we gets to drinking.
And we hang about the tailgate and have a beer.
Tooth and nail.
Diesel and gear.
So, hey there boys from the woods of Maine.
We're out there jammin' on the farm again.
We're pickin' and we're grinnin' and we're carrying on.
Tooth and nail.
Lyric and song.
Tooth and nail.
Diesel and gear.
Tooth and nail.
Hammer and saw.
Say goodnight I love you my dear.
Whisper sweetly once in my ear.
