Whit Whitsitt
A D
You know, I’m the kind of man who likes to work with my hands;
A D
I’ve got a lot of tools that I like to handle;
A D E F#
I’ve even got some grease to make the tight spots fit;
G A D
I got some brand new chrome forks for my bike today;
A D
It said, right there in than manual; Yea, it said
E E Em E
When it comes time to mount those pretty chrome forks;
A D E
With you bolt, don’t ya overtorque
A D E
No, now don’t you overtorque

(Refrain)
A D
No, you don’t want to overtorque those nuts son;

A D A
You never want to make that big bolt pop;
D E
You keep that tension going just as long as you can;
D E Em E
Cause when it comes time to mount those pretty chrome forks;
E D E
With you bolt don’t ya overtorque.
E D E
No son, don’t ya overtorque

(second verse)
A D
I felt so good about the way I made my bike look today;
A D
I bought a round for everybody sittin at the table;
A D E F# G
Including this hot cutie, that I’d never seen before;
G# A D
We all talked for a while and all the while
A D
You know she melted me across that table;
A D A
Man, she likes bikes and she likes tools, and I damn sure hope
D A D E F# G
That she likes fools; for the proposition that I’m about to make her;
G# A D
Honey, why don’ t you come back up to my shop;
A D
It’s not very far; I know you’ll like it a lot;
A D E
We can sip a little wine and maybe light a few candles;
A D
Cause, I’ve got grinders, drills, bits and tips;
A D A
I’ve even got grease to make those tight spots fit;
D E
I’m sure I’ve got a tool you’re, gonna want to handle;
D E Em E
We can watch those flames dance off those shiny chrome forks;
A D E
Then I’ll teach you bout overtorque
A D E
Yea hon, teach you about overtorque

(Refrain)
A D
No, you don’t want to overtorque those nuts Hon;
A D A
You never want to make that big bolt pop;
D E
You keep that tension goin for just as long as you can;
D E Em E
Cause when it comes time to mount your pretty new forks;
A D E
With my bolt, I won’t overtorque;

No I won’t overtorque
A D E
We’re gonna keep this engine runnin smooth;
A
No we won’t overtorque
D E A
