For my woman 
I was a lumberjack 
For my woman 
I broke my back 

I never knew she had her fun 
While I worked in the blistering sun 
Making great big old trees 
Into little bitty ones 

Rain or shine, sleet or snow 
I couldn't say no 
Feeling food, feeling bad 
I had to go 

Ain't funny what a kiss 
And a great big smile can do 
When a woman ain't worth 
The heel off a good man's shoe 

Then came the day 
She ran away with her man 
While I worked, she stole my pick 
This was a fine 

I gave my heart and my soul 
She left me here to hold 
A grieving hand and an aching back 
I'm a broken hearted man 
Just a weary lumberjack
