John Henry was born at the crack of dawn
His mama named Henry and a daddy named John
His daddy predicted that while John was growin'
He would be wild like the wind that was blowin'

That morn he was born was a hurricane
Thunder and lightning and pouring rain
He's exciting to see like the storm he was born in
He took my heart and soul without a warning

So treat me nice, don't be mean, John Henry
Make the girl's faces green with envy
And I'm gonna give you all the love that's in me
John Henry, John Henry

Oh, rock of a man, you're thrillin' me
I'll take your hand so willingly
Ready to go wherever you lead me
Long as I know you'll always need me

Oh Johnny, you are my hero
Without you my life is a zero
So whether I'm happy or in misery
In your arms is where I have to be now

So treat me nice, don't be mean, John Henry
Make the girl's faces green with envy
And I'm gonna give you all the love that's in me
John Henry, John Henry

Henry, you know you've got me goin'
My love for you keeps growing and a growing

Treat me nice, don't be mean, John Henry
Make the girl's faces green with envy
And I'm gonna give you all the love that's in me
John Henry, John Henry
Treat me nice, don't be mean, John Henry
