Well a man needs a woman right by his side. 
A man needs a woman right by his side. 
She keeps him warm at night, he keeps her satisfied. 

You
of your hand
When his mommy looked at him proudly and said
My Johnny'll be a steal drivin' man Lord lord hey Johnny'll be a steal drivin' man
John Henry was
Henry had a pretty little woman and her name was Polly Ann
John Henry he took sick and he had gone to bed
Polly drove the steel like a man Lord Lord but
laid down his hammer and died, Lord, Lord
John Henry laid down his hammer and died

Well, now John Henry, he had him a woman
By the name of Polly Ann
woman and her name was Polly Ann
John Henry he got sick and he had to go to bed
But Polly drove the steel like a man Lord Lord Polly drove the steel like
You know a man needs a woman right by his side
A man needs a woman right by his side
She keeps him warm at night, he keeps her satisfied

Soul
again do it just the same, hey 

Hail John Holt, Alton Ellis, Derloy Wilson, Dennis Brown, hey hey 
Big youth, Josey Wailes, Daddy Roy 
Would wake
John Henry had a little woman
Her name was Polly Anne
John Henry took sick and was laid up in bed
While Polly handled steel like a man man man
Polly
it just the same, hey

[Verse 2]
Hail John Holt, Alton Ellis, Delroy Wilson, Dennis Brown, hey hey
Big Youth, Josey Wales,
Daddy Roy would wake
?"

Dey took John Henry to de graveyard
An' dey buried him in de san'
An' every locomotive come roarin' by
Says, "Dere lays a steel-drivin' man
Lawd,
John Henry.)

First of all John Henry was a black man
He was born where the sun don't ever shine
He was six feet tall he didn't know his own strength
hand, hand, hand
(I believe him)
I'd die with an hammer in my hand"

John Henry had a little woman
Her name was Polly Anne
John Henry took sick and was
the smoke cleared you'd find him sitting
By his sweet little Josephine

A man needs a woman to hold his hand
A man needs a woman to understand
A man needs
to call me a groom
no soap in the john
no soap in the john
no soap in the john
no soap in the john
But I'm rattled by the rush
Rattled by the rush
Old man, didn't know exactly how to do

An she just a desperated woman, now
My baby ain't no earthly good
Now an I don't need no tellin then
I found it
could use some love
What my heart needs is a woman's touch

When I look in the mirror, the only thing I see
Are traces of the man I used to be
Late
The opportunity to lead a slave revolt
Because the West Virginian army made him holt.
He got caught by some racists who weren't down
With his liberal liberation,
hand, hand, hand
(I believe him)
I'd die with an hammer in my hand"

John Henry had a little woman
Her name was Polly Anne
John Henry took sick and was
A man this lonely
A man this blue
A man whose world's been torn in two
Needs somebody
With a heart that's true
A man this lonely needs a woman like
worth

'Cause a real man, knows a real woman when he sees her
And a real woman knows a real man ain't afraid to please her
And a real woman knows
knows her worth

'Cause a real man knows a real woman when he sees her
And a real woman knows a real man ain't afraid to please her
And a real woman
the mine, Lord, Lord
I'll get it from the man in the mine

Well John Henry went to the Captain
Said the captain, what can you do
I can hoist a jack, I
worth

'Cause a real man, knows a real woman when he sees her
And a real woman knows a real man ain't afraid to please her
And a real woman knows
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
