Cut the timber down from the mountain,
Let the big logs roll down the hill;
Gonna watch them splash into the river,
Right out of sight, 'round the bend,
down to the mill.

Tell the jobber, please, I don't want no small wood,
Tell the jobber, please, I want 'em big and tall;
Gonna change my player if I don't make no money,
Gonna find me some big wood for the Fall.

Cut the timber down from the mountain,
Let the big logs roll down the hill;
Gonna watch them splash into the river,
Right out of sight, 'round the bend,
down to the mill.

Found me a good camp
where they give good money,
Found me a good camp where the trees are tall;
Well, the scaler's comin', gonna scale my logs now,
And he said I got the biggest bunch of all.

Cut the timber down from the mountain,
Let the big logs roll down the hill;
Gonna watch them splash into the river,
Right out of sight, 'round the bend,
down to the mill.

Well, if this here tail keeps seein' the big ones,
If they keep comin' long and tall,
If my old chainsaw holds together,
I'll have me a sack of money come the Fall.

Cut the timber down from the mountain,
Let the big logs roll down the hill;
Gonna watch them splash into the river,
Right out of sight, 'round the bend,
down to the mill.
Right out of sight, 'round the bend,
down to the mill.
