The Woodcutter's Song

The Woodcutter's Song

 Oak logs will warm you well
 That are old and dry
 Logs of pine will sweetly smell
 But the sparks will fly
 Birch logs will burn too fast
 And chestnut scarce at all, sir
 Hawthorne logs are good to last
 That are cut well in the fall, sir

 Surely you will find
 No compare in the hardwood logs
 Cut in the winter time

 Holly logs will burn like wax
 You could burn them green
 Elm logs burn like smolderin flax
 With no flame to be seen
 Beech logs for winter time
 Yew logs as well, sir
 Green elder logs it is a crime
 For any man to sell, sir

 Surely you will find
 No compare in the hardwood logs
 Cut in the winter time

 Pear logs and apple logs
 They will scent your room
 And cherry logs across the dogs
 Smell like flowers a bloom
 But ash logs smooth and gray
 Buy them green or old, sir
 And buy up all that come your way
 For they're worth their weight in gold sir

 chorus...
