If you lose your way, find that old log’n road
One long skid through the slash
Straight down the run, take the ridge like he said
Brings you out to open sky
When you see that old Hardscrabble Road
Then you’re home, don’t you know

Two—two stroke Stan
Forty trees one man
Two—two stroke Stan
Never saw it coming, never ran

Two—two stroke Stan
Forty trees one man
Two—two stroke Stan
Never saw it coming, never ran

How many years, just been cut’n for a life
Yeah his daddy did it too
Take your pay when the day is done
Buy some jack to ease the pain
Sleep it off on the old Dodge seat
Wake up cold, just one boot on

Two—two stroke Stan
Forty trees one man
Two—two stroke Stan
Never saw it coming, never ran

Some close calls, only one that shows
What’s a scar without a tale
Wind that fights, stubborn pine won’t fall
Hung up luck, just for now
Turned his back on the devil’s tree
It came down the worst of all

Two—two stroke Stan
Forty trees one man
Two—two stroke Stan
Never saw it coming, never ran

In the wind, you can still hear that saw
Howl’in through the stand’n wood
Some may find, where that same old tree
Left be-hind just turned to dust
Take it back, then it all returns
laid him down to start again

Two—two stroke Stan
Forty trees one man
Two—two stroke Stan
Never saw it coming, never ran
Never saw it coming, never ran
Never saw it coming, never ran
