About Crosscut Saw

"Crosscut Saw", or "Cross Cut Saw Blues" as it was first called, is a dirty blues song "that must have belonged to the general repertoire of the Delta blues". The song was first released in 1941 by Mississippi bluesman Tommy McClennan and has since been interpreted by many blues artists. "Crosscut Saw" became an early R&B chart hit for Albert King, "who made it one of the necessary pieces of modern blues".

I'm a cross cut saw 
Just drag me 'cross your log
You know, I'm a cross cut saw 
Just drag me across your log
I cut your wood so easy for you
You can't help but say 'Hot dog!'

Some call me wood-choppin' Sam
Some call me wood-cuttin' Ben
Last girl I cut the wood for, you know 
She wants me back again

I'm a cross cut saw, 
Just drag me 'cross your log
I cut your wood so easy for you 
You can't help but say 'Hot dog!'

I've got a double-bladed axe
That really cuts good
And I'm a cross cut saw, just bury me in the wood
I'm a cross cut saw, 
Baby, just drag me 'cross your log
I cut your wood so easy for you, woman
You can't help but say 'Hot dog!'
