Well, I left Kentucky back in '04
An' went to Mississippi workin' on Delta 'sembly line
The first year they had me puttin' motors on the DeltaX5
Every day I'd watch them beauties roll by
And sometimes I'd hang my head and cry
'Cause I always wanted one that had 5 horse power!
One day I devised myself a plan
That should be the envy of most any woodworker.
I'd sneak it out of there in a lunchbox in my hand
Now gettin' caught meant gettin' fired
But I figured I'd have it all by the time I retired
I'd have me a table saw worth at least three grand.
I'd get it one piece at a time
And it wouldn't cost me a dime
You'll know it's me when you drive by my garage.
I'm gonna be cuttin wood in style
I'm gonna drive everybody wild
'Cause I'll have the only one there is a round.
So the very next day when I punched in
With my big lunchbox and with help from my friends
I left that day with a lunch box full of table saw parts
Now, I never considered myself a thief
Delta wouldn't miss just one little piece
Especially if I strung it out over several years.
The first day I got me a motor
And the next day I got me an trunnion and a fence.
Then I got me the cast iron top and all of the chrome
The little things I could get in my big lunchbox
Like nuts, an' bolts, and the hand wheels.
But the big stuff we snuck out in my buddy's mobile home.
Now, up to now my plan went all right
'Til we tried to put it all together one night
And that's when we noticed that something was definitely wrong.
