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


It's a long way to Hazard a long way to Harian
Just to get a little booze, just get a little boos


Ain't one hammer in this tunnel
That rings like mine that rings like mine


It rings like silver and shines like gold
It rings like silver and shines like gold


Somebody stole my nine pound hammer
They've took it and gone, they've took it and gone


That nine pound hammer that killed John Henry
Ain't a gonna kill me, ain't a gonna kill me
