[Intro]

C    G    F      G
C    G    F   G  C

[Verse 1]

       C                   G
Oh, he makes his life as a carpenter
   F                  G
He works his hands in wood
       C                 G
And he lives the way his granddad
           F               G
Might have liked and understood

   C                 G
He goes to work each morning
       F                G
And he comes home every night
        C         Cmaj9  Am    G
And the time that passes in between
   F         G          C
He knows has been spent right

[Interlude]

C    G    F   G  C

[Verse 2]

   C               G
A child in South Ohio
   F                G
A man in Northern Maine
    C                     G
He took his dream to the end of the world
           F             G
And he brought it back again

         C               G
Here he met his sweet Rebekah
         F                 G
Here he came to make his stand
        C      Cmaj9        Am    G
In a house he built in the piny woods
            F     G        C
Where the ocean meets the land

[Chorus]

C    G    F   G    C
And it's hey ho, steady as you go
F             G           C
Sing for the love of the land
F   G    Am
Hey ho, blessed is the home
F            G           C
Born of the carpenter's hand

[Interlude]

C    G    F   G  C

[Verse 3]

         C                 G
Oh, his hair is rough and curly
         F                    G
And his legs they reach the ground
         C                G
And his eyes are full of living
         F                  G
And his back is broad and brown

         C                 G
And his heart is sure and stubborn
          F                    G
And his pride's too strong to bend
     C       Cmaj9   Am       G
And somewhere in his life he found
     F      G       C
The time to be my friend

[Chorus]

C    G    F   G    C
And it's hey ho, steady as you go
F             G           C
Sing for the love of the land
F   G    Am
Hey ho, blessed is the home
F            G           C
Born of the carpenter's hand

[Verse 4]

G       C                 G
Oh, he loves his sweet Rebekah
       F                 G
He'll love her 'til his death
         C              G
And she gave to him a bonny son
          F               G
And they named the child Seth

     C               G
And now they are a family
      F          G
A community of three
 C    Cmaj9    Am   G
Living in the piny woods
           F    G         C
Where the soil meets the sea

[Chorus]

C    G    F   G    C
And it's hey ho, steady as you go
F             G           C
Sing for the love of the land
F   G    Am
Hey ho, blessed is the home
F            G           C   Am
Born of the carpenter's hand
F            G           C
Born of the carpenter's hand

[Outro]

C    G    F      G
C    G    F   G  C
