About If I Had a Hammer

"If I Had a Hammer (The Hammer Song)" is a song written by Pete Seeger and Lee Hays. It was written in 1949 in support of the progressive movement, and was first recorded by The Weavers, a folk music quartet composed of Seeger, Hays, Ronnie Gilbert, and Fred Hellerman. It was a number 10 hit for Peter, Paul and Mary in 1962 and then went to number three a year later when recorded by Trini Lopez. The Weavers released the song under the title "The Hammer Song" as a 78 single in March 1950 on Hootenanny Records, 101-A, backed with "Banks of Marble".

If I had a hammer
I'd hammer in the morning 
I'd hammer in the evening
All over this land 
I'd hammer out danger
I'd hammer out a warning
I'd hammer out love between 
My brothers and my sisters, ah-ah
All over this land

If I had a bell
I'd ring it in the morning
I'd ring it in the evening
All over this land 
I'd ring out danger
I'd ring out a warning 
I'd ring out love between 
My brothers and my sisters, ah-ah
All over this land

If I had a song
I'd sing it in the morning
I'd sing it in the evening
All over this world
I'd sing out danger
I'd sing out a warning
I'd sing out love between 
My brothers and my sisters ah-ah
All over this land

I got a hammer
And I've got a bell
And I've got a song to sing
All over this land
It's the hammer of justice
It's the bell of freedom
It's the song about love between 
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land
All over this land
All over this land
All over this land
All over this land
All over this land
All over this land
