Corb Lund - Hard On Equipment / Tool For The Job Lyrics

lyrics by Corb Lund and Mike Plume, music by Corb Lund

He's been roundiní off bolts since the age of fourteen
Was that a five eighths or a nine sixteenths?
He's got a metric socket that don't quite fit
Well it'll wiggle just a little but it ainít quite stripped
The safety guardís gone from his grinding machine
He got a stiff paint brush he only kinda got clean
He's the hired man, my neighbor and a cousin in law
He's a jerry rigginí fool, he got the tool for the job

Well it's vise grips for pliers, and pliers for a wrench
A wrench for a hammer, hammers everything else
It just donít seem to make much difference
I sure do like him but heís hard on equipment
I sure like you son, but youíre hard on equipment

His corners ainít square and his floor ainít level
And he's always had trouble with the old tape measure
His doors donít close Ďcause the jamb ainít plumb
And heís a Goddamn menace with an air nail gun
They love to see him cominí at the lumberyard store
Fixed the leak in his roof with a two by four
Drilled holes in his boards with the wrong kinda bit
And when they donít line up he blames the government

He got the whole front yard full of fix Ďem up cars
Three donít run and the rest wonít start
Everything's fine with his rebuilt motor
Except of course for the couple spare parts left over
Baler wire tie downs goiní down the road
On two bald tires and an oversize load
He ain't never read a manual Ďcause that's like cheatiní
He don't mind a little grease on his hands while he's eatiní

Heís got busted up knuckles, his thumb got bruised
Jesus Christ was a carpenter, too
