You wired the trains

And went back home to St. Claire's shores

Before you became a spark down at the yard

You were passin' through those hungry years alone

You were just tryin' to

Make a make a living out in Detroit

When you came back off the boats

You didn't want to go anywhere

You sit down to TV in your favourite chair

You watch the big picture fade away

Down at Harland and Wolff

But you still kept on choppin' wood

And you came back home to Belfast

So you could be with us like

You lived your life

Of quiet desperation on the side

Goin' to the shipyard

In the mornin' on your bike

Well, the spark was gone but you carried on with it

You always did the best you could

You sent for us once but ev'rything fell through

But you still kept on choppin' wood

Choppin' wood!

(Instrumental, sax & harmonica)

Well, you came back home to Belfast

So you could be with us like

And you lived a life of quiet desperation on the side

Goin' to the shipyard in the morning on your bike

WeIl, the spark was gone but you carried on

Well, ya did just the best that you could

You sent for us one time

But ev'rything fell through

But you still kept on choppin' wood

Kept on choppin' wood

(Chop-choppin' wood)

Kept on choppin' wood

(Chop-choppin' wood)

Local man chops wood

(Chop-choppin' wood)

You know you did the best you could

(Chop-chopping wood)

When ev'rything just fell through

(Chop-choppin' wood)

Kept on choppin' wood

(Chop-choppin' wood)

Chop-chop, chop-chop-chop

Chop-chop, chop-chop-chop

(Chop-choppin' wood)

Chop-chop-chop

(Chop-choppin' wood)

Keep on choppin' wood

(Chop-choppin' wood)

Chop-chop-chop

Choppin' wood

(Chop-choppin' wood).
