I drove a beat up tractor down a one lane road
Pick her up early and away we'd go
Down to the river by the edge of her daddy's farm
We used to lay
die with the hammer in his hand
John Henry went to the tunnel drive steam drill was by his side
Before he would let that steam drill beat him down
He
I drove a beat up tractor down a one lane road
Pick her up early and away we'd go
Down to the river by the edge of her daddy's farm
We used to lay
Holy John lives down by the water
Savin' sinners and he wants your dollar
Tell the people that they'd better repent
Tellin' your daughter it was him
When John Henry was just a little bitty boy no bigger than the palm of your hand
His mommy looked down at John Henry and say
Well Johnny you're gonna
Lord, I'll beat that driver by a mile

Old John Henry started pounding down the steel
The steam drill was there by his side
They both drove steel for ten
handled steel like a man.

They took John Henry to the graveyard
Laid him down in the sand
Every locomotive comin' a-rolling by by by
Hollered "there
a steam drill 'round
Gonna take dat steam drill out on de job
Gonna whop dat steel on down, Lawd, Lawd
Gonna whop dat steel on down

John Henry tol'
Holy John lives down by the water
Bathing sinners and he wants your daughter
Telling people that they'd better repent
Telling your daughter it was
on the job
Gonna whup that steel on down, down, down
Whup that steel on down"

John Henry said to the Captain
(What he say?)
"You can bring your steam drill
on the job
Gonna whup that steel on down, down, down
Whup that steel on down"

John Henry said to the Captain
(What he say?)
"You can bring your steam drill
John Henry and they told me if they let me read this old book I'd
Probably write a song about it. 
And they did and I did and I called it more About
Yeah baby
This here's a story about Lost John
Lost John done flew the coop
How many long gone?

Lost John standin' by the railroad track
Waitin' for
, Lord, Lord
Whup that steel on down

Well John Henry said to the captain,
Oh a man ain't nothin' but a man
'Fore I'd let your steam drill beat me
magnolias blossomed cotton fields as white as snow

v2: Catfish John was a river hobo living down by the river's bend
Thinkin' back I still remember I was
Down at the railroad station my suitcase settin' by my side
Got no high hopes of leaving I'm just watching the trains go by
Watching the trains go
Ha!

This here's a story about, Lost John
Lost John done flew the coop!

Hee!

How many long gone?

Lost John standin' by the railroad track
Ha!

This here's a story about, Lost John
Lost John done flew the coop!

Hee!

How many long gone?

Lost John standin' by the railroad track
I'd rather eat my chili beans
At Jack's or John's or Jim's or Jean's
Than taking my chances eating down at Smokey Joe's Café
I risked my like with
a-dreamin'
She dreamed them old southern dreams
She was the dreamest girl
The dreamest girl I most ever seen

Now, she dreamed I was kissin' her 
A-down by
John Roy was a boy I knew
Since he was 3 and I was two
Grew up two little houses down from me
The only bad apples on our family tree
Kinda
on the dash
For the next eight and one half years
We got paid by Cash

He took us down to Nashville
To Columbia studio
Not knowing where we came from
driving steel
Said "Sweat, boy! Sweat! Only two more swings!"
"I was born drivin' steel"

Well now John Henry hammered in the mountains
He'd give a grunt he
on the dash
For the next eight and one half years
We got paid by Cash

He took us down to Nashville
To Columbia studio
Not knowing where we came from

I Thought You Were Some Kind of Movie Star
You Got That Look That Turns Me On
I Want
