Hey, I'm just an old chunk of coal
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day
I'm gonna grow and glow till I'm so blue, pure, perfect
I'm gonna put a smile
I'm just an old chunk of coal
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day

I'm gonna grow and glow 'til I'm so blue, pure perfect
I'm gonna put a smile
Hey I'm just an old chunk of coal
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day
I'm gonna grow and glow till I'm so blue pure perfect
I'm gonna put a smile
I'm just an old chunk of coal
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day
I'm gonna grow and glow
'Til I'm so blue pure perfect
I'm gonna put a smile
Hey, I'm just an old chunk of coal
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day
I'm gonna grow and glow till I'm so blue, pure, perfect
I'm gonna put a smile
Hey I'm just an old chunk of coal
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day
I'm gonna grow and glow till I'm so blue pure perfect
I'm gonna put a smile
I'm just an old chunk of coal,
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day.
I'm gonna grow and blow 'til I'm so blue, pure, and perfect.
I'm gonna put
the bad old days
But I'm done turning diamonds to coal

Now just before dinner time
This old drunk comes knocking on my door
Say he's looking for some girl
gathered round that old farmhouse was the relatives of all them dead
Now John said if the sheriff comes through that door I'm gonna fill him plum full
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
been sad and lonely since the day I left her side
But today I got her letter said she'd be my Cajun bride
Gonna go and wed my Cajun baby and I've by
been sad and lonely since the day I left her side
But today I got her letter said she'd be my Cajun bride
Gonna go and wed my Cajun baby and I've by
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
Written by John Barlow/Delbert McClinton 1990
I found her number, and the note she wrote
Deep in the pocket, of a real old coat
It just got by me
that door I'm gonna fill him plumb full of lead." 
The sheriff kicked down that old farmhouse door, but old John's gun would not shoot 
Johnny just
that old hoochie coochie man, I'm a bad son of a gun

Oh
Ah
Got a John the conqueroot and got some mojo too
We got a black cat born, we're gonna
But I shall not disavow
All these ties that bind me now

Ther'll be a diamond, a diamond in my crown
Shinning down some day I know
Brighter than
that old hoochie coochie man, I'm a bad son of a gun

Oh
Ah
Got a John the conqueroot and got some mojo too
We got a black cat born, we're gonna
blood, you're just 
gonna be a plain old coal miner as long as you live." He went on to say, "It's a habit (CHUCKLE) 
sorta like chewin' tobaccer."
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
right out of those woods

Old Dillon had a million tales but he sung me one refrain

And I recall that song by John Dillon James


One July Monday morning
that old hoochie coochie man, I'm a bad son of a gun

Oh
Ah
Got a John the conqueroot and got some mojo too
We got a black cat born, we're gonna
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
laughin' at John Henry
They said," Your full of vinegar now but you bout' through!
We gonna get a steamdrill to do your share of drivin'
Then what's all
laughin' at John Henry
They said," Your full of vinegar now but you bout' through!
We gonna get a steamdrill to do your share of drivin'
Then what's all
