I will swing my axe, don't let the flames go down
Carve out some of that kindlin'
There's plenty of wood around

Well I've seen the Devil's shadow underneath the moon
Keep that fire a-goin', the Son/sun is coming soon

I will swing my axe, don't let the flames go down
Carve out some of that kindlin'
There's plenty of wood around

[Instrumental]

When I'm old and gray and these two hands are worn
Cross me over Jordan, Lord, and I'll keep heaven warm

I will swing my axe, don't let the flames go down
Carve out some of that kindlin'
There's plenty of wood around
