The Scene Changes - 1965
 
A Hatchet, A Hammer,
A Bucket of Nails
 
A hatchet, a hammer, a bucket of nails
and all the wood I can find
I'll build me a cabin on top of the hill
got all the plans in my mind . . .
 
Where the tree tops talk to the wind
where the eagle flies
I'll bring her to see it the minute I'm through
won't she light up with surprise! 
 
A hatchet, a hammer, and just my two hands,
but with some help from above
The walls will start risin', the roof will go on
the final touch will be love . . .
 
Where the tree tops talk to the wind
where the eagle flies
The preacher will bless us as we hurry to
our happy home in the skies . . . 
 
As soon as we're married, 
we're movin' in to
our happy home in the skies . . . 
 
( A hatchet, a hammer, a bucket of nails . . . )
Our happy home in the skies . . .
