Nine Pound Hammer
This nine pound hammer, it's a little too heavy For my size, baby, for my size I'm goin' on the mountain, gonna see my baby But I ain't comin' back, well, I ain't comin' back Roll on buddy, don't you roll so slow Tell me, how can I roll, when the wheels won't go? Roll on buddy, pull a load of coal Now, how can I pull, when wheels won't roll? It's a long way to Harlan, it's a long way to Hazard Just to get a little brew, just to get a little brew Well, when I'm long gone you can make my tombstone Outta number nine coal, outta number nine coal Hey, roll on buddy, don't you roll so slow How can I roll, when the wheels won't go? Roll on buddy, pull your load of coal Tell me, how can I pull, when wheels won't roll?
