[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]
