I can chop wood from dusk till dawn
I can swing a hammer till the daylight's gone
I can build a barn, I can make a home with these two hands
But if I didn't have all your love, I'd be half a man.

I can fly a plane up in the big blue sky
Blaze a trail through the woods in my four-wheel drive
With a team of horses or an old John Deere, I can plough this land
But if I didn't have all your love, I'd be half a man.

I can hang the stars, I can rope the moon
Walk across Texas in these cowboy boots
I can run a train till it runs out of track
With the weight of the world laid across my back
My life still wouldn't be worth a damn
If I didn't have all your love, I'd be half a man.

I can build a fire with nothin' but a stick
If I put my mind to it, there ain't much I can't fix
I can read an' count, I can figure things out if you give me a chance
But if I didn't have all your love, I'd be half a man.

I can hang the stars, I can rope the moon
Walk across Texas in these cowboy boots
I can run a train till it runs out of track
With the weight of the world laid across my back
An' my life still wouldn't be worth a damn.
If I didn't have all your love, I'd be half a man.

Whoa, I can hang the stars, I can rope the moon
Walk across Texas in these cowboy boots
I can run a train till it runs out of track
With the weight of the world laid across my back.
(Across my back.)
But my life still wouldn't be worth a damn
If I didn't have all your love, I'd be half a man.

If I didn't have all your love, I'd be half a man.
Ah ha.
Whoa, yeah.
Mmm, mm, mm...
