Thread Name: Writer/info needed -Utah Phillips-Lumberjack Song
Subject: RE: Looking for writer/info. of song
While I could not find the lyrics to be sure, my best guess is that it is "The Timber Beast's Lament" by (or at least performed by) Utah Phillips. If so, it may be found on the album _We Have Fed You All A Thousand Years_, cut #4.

For some background on the trying circumstances of being a "Timber Beast", as related to the song, look here.

Another Utah recording (available!) with it may be found here.

For more more current meanings/other info, try looking here.

For the same results, go to and search on timber beast.

I hope this helps. More importantly, I hope the links work! [grin]
