More Wood (Dillon Bustin) 1. In the fall of the year, when you feel the winter near And the days are clear It surely isn't good to sit by the fire And want to stoke it higher When you should be cutting more wood. From November to march, the winter winds are harsh On the fields and the marsh they're covered up with snow When you trudge to the shed you have to scratch your head Because the dad-blamed pile's getting low on... Chorus: Wood (hard wood) Firewood (dry wood) There's not a stove in the world That's going to do you any good Without wood (stove wood) We could (you should) Be out cutting more wood. 2. When the kindling is dwindling, the bottom logs get soggy Those ricks of sticks and racks and stacks It makes you wonder where they go and barnfuls of armfuls They only last a week or so And then you'll be hurting for wood. Well the sassafras it burns too fast, It starts the fire but never lasts And swamp oak likes to smoke you blow it till you think you'll choke. But hickory is just the tree to remind you of the ecstasy Of having a pile of good wood, I said ... 3. Well the Scandia and Jotul brands are made so far across the sea The Fisher kind and Timberline are made here in the country With all the rest put to the test the one I like the best Is the one my Uncle Wade he made for me. He took an oil drum and welded some piping from the septic tank And fore and aft he cut a draft, and then he made a damper crank With an old broom from the back room. He painted it fire engine red And said now watch her consume your.... 4. When the spring rolls around and I spade the muddy ground I have often found I lay my saw away, The shed is empty and yet you can make a bet That I'll forget to be cutting more wood. The old timers say to split a little every day And stack it away to season well, but From March to November I rarely do remember December will find me in a rut... Last Chorus: Without wood (hard wood) Firewood (dry wood) There's not a stove in the world That's going to do you any good Without wood (stove wood) We could (you should) Be out cutting some Throw it in the oil drum What do you think your saw is for You can always use some more wood.
