Well I'm a shade tree fix-it man
Don’t need any helpin’ hand
I'm a Jack-A-All-Trades when I'm workin' in the shade
I'm a shade tree-fix-it man

Well I headed out west from Arkansas my hoopie ran fine for a while
Then a rod started knockin' and a gauge started rockin' she wouldn't run another mile
But on a downhill drag I coasted for a while till I found me a shady inn
Started huffin' and a puffin' started a frettin' and a sweatin'
Soon had her runnin' again

Cause I'm a shade tree fix-it man
Don’t need any helpin’ hand
I'm a Jack-A-All-Trades when I'm workin' in the shade
