JUST NEEDED TO BORROW YOUR SAW

I came by your shed without making a sound
Borrowed your saw and brought it back around
You can keep all the things you've hid
I wouldn't want to frighten you or your kid
I wouldn't touch the dust on your antique bridge
Just needed to borrow your saw

If you don't pay for the place you sleep
Or pave for footsteps to your horse and wheat
It's a crime and they can take you in
Lock you up in a eight-foot bin
Folks standing 'round will be paying in
And not one would think to lift a hand

Just needed to borrow your saw, friend
Needed to borrow your saw
Splinters and rust before you use it again
Just needed to borrow your saw

There's a law, you gotta stay in one place
And one puts a price on the length of your days
You can have your rent and your eight-fifteen
To buy your own breath back and cash it in
The air's still free but all the land I've ever seen
Is land that someone owns

Just needed to borrow your saw, friend
Needed to borrow your saw
Splinters and rust before you use it again
Just needed to borrow your saw
