Hand me that hammer
hand me that saw
don't hand me down that walkin' cane
I don't need it at all

I'm gonna build me a home
gonna build it with my hands
gonna keep the rain off my head
gonna keep the mosquitos from getting fed

Don't need 'em at all

The river she's a giver
the river she takes away
gonna row my boat to the other shore
won't think about my troubles anymore

Don't need 'em at all

I should have been a steamboat man
push it on down to Louisiana
here I am working in the field
if the heat don't get you then the sunburn will

Don't need it at all
