You Made Toothpicks Of The Timber Of My Heart

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Chester:
For a backwoods gal was she
And for chopping down a tree
I was handy with an ax and I was smart

June:
But I should have passed you by
When you waved and hollered (Chester: hi!)
You made toothpicks of the timber of my heart

Chester:
When you promised to be mine
I cut 90 logs of pine
For a cabin in our little world’s apart

June:
All my dreams were heaven bound
‘Til you tore that cabin down
You made toothpicks of the timber of my heart

Helen and Anita:
He made toothpicks of the timber of her heart
He made toothpicks of the timber of her heart

June:
Like a buzz saw rips a pole
He made sawdust of my soul
He made toothpicks of the timber of my heart

Helen and Anita:
He was tall and he was limber and for timber he was fine
But his lips were poison oak and turpentine

June:
He was seasoned, I was green
Yes, my darling lumber king
Twined me around his finger like a clinging vine

Chester:
Now I hang around the shack
Just a lonesome lumberjack
I might have knowed your heart was wooden from the start

June:
When you snatched away your charms

There were splinters in my arms
You made toothpicks of the timber of my heart

Helen and Anita:
He made toothpicks of the timber of her heart
He made toothpicks of the timber of her heart

Chester:
When I rolled you down the hill

June:
And I run you through the mill
You made toothpicks of the timber of my heart

All:
You made toothpicks of the timber of my heart
