Song lyrics
(Merle Haggard)

Yeah, I'm a shade tree fix-it man
I don't need any helping hand
I'm a Jack-of-all-trades when I'm workin' in the shade
I'm a shade tree-fix-it man.

Well, I headed out of west from Arkansas
My Ruby ran fine for a while
Then a rock started knockin' a guage started rockin'
She wouldn't run another mile.

But on that downhill drag I coasted for awhile
Till I found me a shady inn
I started huffin' and a puffin', started a frettin' and a sweatin'
But I soon had her runnin' again.

'Cause I'm a shade tree fix-it man
I don't need any helping hand
I'm a Jack-of-all-trades when I'm workin' in the shade
I'm a shade tree-fix-it man.

--- Instrumental ---

'Bout noon the next day I was back on the road
I had her running on out
While I was wheelin' and a dealin' I got a funny feelin'
If my baby kinda felt this doubt.

Oh, I found me a shade by the side of the road
I fixed everything up fine
With a little bit of lovin' in a few minutes later
We was rolling on down the line.

Cause I'm a shade tree fix-it man
I don't need any helping hand
I'm a Jack-of-all-trades when I'm workin' in the shade
I'm a shade tree-fix-it man.

One more time I'm a shade tree fix-it man
I don't need any helping hand
I'm a Jack-of-all-trades when I'm workin' in the shade
I'm a shade tree-fix-it man.

Yeah, I'm a shade tree fix-it man
I don't need any helping hand
I'm a Jack-of-all-trades when I'm workin' in the shade
I'm a shade tree-fix-it man...
