Who killed John Henry , In the battle of sinners and saints
Who killed John Henry , In the battle of sinners and saints

Take this hammer carry it to the Captain , Tell him why I'm gone
Take this hammer carry it to the Captain , Tell him I'm goin' home

I don't want your cold iron shackles around my leg
I don't want your cold iron shackles around my leg

Who killed John Henry , In the battle of sinners and saints
Who killed John Henry , In the battle of sinners and saints

I'm a long way from Colorado , A long way from my home...
Get the hammer that killed John Henry , Won't kill me no more
Gimme the hammer that killed John Henry , 'cause it won't kill me
Gimme the hammer that killed John Henry , 'cause it won't kill me

Who killed John Henry , In the battle of sinners and saints
Who killed John Henry , In the battle of sinners and saints

Take this hammer carry it to the Captain , Tell him I'm goin' home
Take this hammer carry it to the Captain , Tell him why I'm gone
I'm a wanted man with the Captain
I'm a wanted man in the shackles
I'm a wanted man in the shackles
I'm a wanted man .....

Who killed John Henry , In the battle of sinners and saints
Who killed John Henry , In the battle of sinners and saints
Ohhhh Ohhhhhhh

I killed John Henry , In the battle of sinners and saints
Ohhhh Ohhhhhhhhh
