I was uncorrupt and fair to everyone
I dreamed I wasn't gross or base, a criminal on the take
And most of all I dreamed I forgot the day John
the piper's son,
he was there with me

I rode through the valley with the princess by my side
The Duke and the Duchess did a Reggae Reggae Reggae last night
the piper's son,
he was there with me

I rode through the valley with the princess by my side
The Duke and the Duchess did a Reggae Reggae Reggae last night
Hammer be the death of me!"

Some say he's born in Texas
Some say he's born up in Maine
I just say he was a Louisiana man
Leader of a steel-driving
the piper's son,
he was there with me

I rode through the valley with the princess by my side
The Duke and the Duchess did a Reggae Reggae Reggae last night
Well they hung John Brown in 1859
After his revolt did not go fine. 
Trying to free the slaves was a noble cause,
Like putting one's faith in
noon
The dirge will sound on the morrow's noon
I was not born into this time
To cleave the soil or work the mine
I came to claim my enemy
And be
killed John Henry, 
I'm gonna leave that allowing up to you,
Well, was he killed by hard work or was he killed by bad women
Be sure that this ain't
the piper's son,
he was there with me

I rode through the valley with the princess by my side
The Duke and the Duchess did a Reggae Reggae Reggae last night
Hammer be the death of me"

Some say he's born in Texas
Some say he's born up in Maine
I just say he was a Louisiana man
Leader of a steel-driving chain
Hammer be the death of me"

Some say he's born in Texas
Some say he's born up in Maine
I just say he was a Louisiana man
Leader of a steel-driving chain
I tell you the truth no one can enter the kingdom
Unless he is born again unless he is born again (John 3:3)

How can this be (John 3:4)
People
born
That filled them both with pride
And we were there when John remembered
God was on his side

We watched him on the concert stage
We watched
born
That filled them both with pride
And we were there when John remembered
God was on his side

We watched him on the concert stage
We watched
was a river hobo
Who lived and died by the river's bed
Looking back, I still remember
I was proud to be his friend

Mama said, "Don't go near that river
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
Catfish John was a river hobo who lived and died by the river's bed,
Looking back I still remember I was proud to be his friend.

Mama said, Don't go
the tunnel
Had his captain by his side
The last words that John Henry said was bring me
Cool drink of what ‘for I die lord, lord
Cool drink of what ‘for I
It's way darker this time

Sometimes I brag like Hov
Born sinner, the opposite of a winner
Sometimes I brag like Hov
Born sinner, the opposite
Catfish John was a river hobo
Livin' by the river bed
Thinkin' back, I still remember
I was proud to be his friend

Momma said don't go near that river
John was a river hobo who lived and died by the river's bed,
Looking back I still remember I was proud to be his friend.

Mama said, "Don't go near that
Catfish John was a river hobo who lived and died by the river's bed,
Looking back I still remember I was proud to be his friend.

Mama said, Don't go
ya'll I am a survivor
And with him I can do all things

I was born - born to win ? 6x

I'm a winner

I was born - born to win

Hold on through
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
The gypsy woman told my mama
On the day I was born
Oh, you got a boy child comin'
Oh Lord, he's gonna be a son of a gun
He's gonna make those
