Jack of All Trades

Album: Wrecking Ball (2012)
  • I'll mow your lawn, clean the leaves out your drain
    I'll mend your roof to keep out the rain
    I'll take the work that God provides
    I'm a Jack of all trades, honey, we'll be alright

    I'll hammer the nails, and I'll set the stone
    I'll harvest your crops when they're ripe and grown
    I'll pull that engine apart and patch her up 'til she's running right
    I'm a Jack of all trades, we'll be alright

    A hurricane blows, brings a hard rain
    When the blue sky breaks, feels like the world's gonna change
    We'll start caring for each other like Jesus said that we might
    I'm a Jack of all trades, we'll be alright

    The banker man grows fatter, the working man grows thin
    It's all happened before and it'll happen again
    It'll happen again, they'll bet your life
    I'm a Jack of all trades and, darling, we'll be alright

    Now sometimes tomorrow comes soaked in treasure and blood
    Here we stood the drought, now we'll stand the flood
    There's a new world coming, I can see the light
    I'm a Jack of all trades, we'll be alright

    So you use what you've got, and you learn to make do
    You take the old, you make it new
    If I had me a gun, I'd find the bastards and shoot 'em on sight
    I'm a Jack of all trades, we'll be alright
    I'm a Jack of all trades, we'll be alright Writer/s: BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN
