Johnny Cash

John R. "Johnny" Cash (February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003), was an American singer-songwriter, actor, and author, who has been called one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. Although he is primarily remembered as a country music icon, his songs and sound spanned many other genres including rockabilly and rock and roll—especially early in his career—as well as blues, folk, and gospel. This crossover appeal led to Cash being inducted in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Gospel Music Hall of Fame. more »

Well this nine pound hammer is a little too heavy for my size honey for my size 
I'm goin' on the mountain gonna see my baby 
And I ain't comin' back Lord I ain't comin' back 
Oh roll on buddy don't you roll so slow how can I go when my wheels won't roll 
Roll on buddy pull a load o'coal how can I go when my wheels won't roll 

Well it's a long way to Harlem it's a long way to Hazzard 
Just to get a little brew just to get a little brew 
Now when I'm long gone you can make my tombstone 
Out of number nine coal out of number nine coal 
Roll on buddy
