Am        F        E             Am      F        E
  In the woods of Northern Michigan, he made his home 
Am        F         E                   Am        F   E
  Didn't ask much from the world, just wanted to be alone 
Am            F           E                 Am            F      E
  He got his first real blade at thirteen; that's when it all began
Am               F       E              Am           F        E
  And soon the creatures of the forest called him "Whittlin' Man" - yeah!

       A                       Esus4
  He whittled all day and he whittled all night
       C5                                G5
  He whittled, whittled, whittled everything in sight 
       A                          Esus4
  He whittled on a stick and he whittled on his shoe
              C5                     G5
  And if you come too close, gonna whittle you too

D5             Bb              D5
  Keep a safe distance if you can 
                       Bb           C5
  'Cause you're never safe around Whittlin' Man 

  Had a stump to sit on; had some wood, had his trusty knife 
  Whittled out a house, a car, and he whittled himself a wife(Such a beautiful wife!)
  Whittled out four kids, a swimming pool and a big leer jet
  And so he wouldn't miss Saved By The Bell, when he whittled a T.V. set - yeah!

  He'd whittle if its light, and he'd whittle if its dark 
  And if Noah was around, well he'd whittle him an ark
  He'd whittle something new and he'd whittle something old
  He'd whittle something hot and he'd whittle something rather chilly 

  Keep a safe distance if you can 
 'Cause you're never safe around Whittlin' Man 

  Some say "Whittlin' Man's a genius", still others say "He's just dumb"
  He whittled off a foot, an ear, three fingers and his left thumb... Boy, is he dumb!
  That won't stop him, no it won't - he'll whittle through thick and thin
  And once he's whittled everything, he'll just whittle it all again - yeah!

  He'd whittle if it's white, and he'd whittle if it's black
  And he'd whittle on a duck 'til the duck can't quack
  He'd whittle if it's dry, and he'd whittle if it's juicy
  Whittled on Desi and he whittled on Lucy
  Whittled JFK and he whittled Jackie O
  Whittled old Larry and Curly and Moe
  And he whittled Frank Zappa and he whittled Tipper Gore
  Whittle, whittle, whittle 'til he can't no more
  Whittled Shamu and he'd whittle on Jaws
  Whittled the Easter Bunny and he whittled Santa Claus
  He'll whittle, whittle, whittle just fast as he can
    C5                         G5              A
  Whittle till he's dead - he's the Whittlin' Man...
