Don’t need any helpin’ hand
I'm a shade tree-fix-it man
Well I headed out west from Arkansas my hoopie ran fine for a while
But on a downhill drag I coasted for a while till I found me a shady inn
Soon had her runnin' again
Cause I'm a shade tree fix-it man
I'm a Jack-A-All-Trades when I'm workin' in the shade


I was wheelin' and a dealin' I got a funny feelin' that my baby kinda felt left out
Hey, a little bit of lovin' and a few minutes later was rolling on down the line
Cause I'm a shade tree fix-it man
I'm a Jack-A-All-Trades when I'm workin' in the shade



Then a rod started knockin' and a gauge started rockin' she wouldn't run another mile
Started huffin' and a puffin' started frettin' and a sweatin'

I don't need any helpin’ hand
I'm a shade tree-fix-it man
(Whistle out)
