Nine Pound Hammer
[Chorus:] This nine pound hammer is a little too heavy For my size, honey, for my size Roll on buddy, don't you roll so slow Baby, how can I roll when the wheels won't go Up on the mountain just to see my honey And I ain't coming back, lord, I ain't coming back [Chorus] It's a long way to Hazard a long way to Harian Just to get a little booze, just get a little boos [Chorus] Ain't one hammer in this tunnel That rings like mine that rings like mine [Chorus] It rings like silver and shines like gold It rings like silver and shines like gold [Chorus] Somebody stole my nine pound hammer They've took it and gone, they've took it and gone [Chorus] That nine pound hammer that killed John Henry Ain't a gonna kill me, ain't a gonna kill me [Chorus]
