This nine pound hammer
Is a little too heavy for my size
Buddy for my size.

I'm going on the mountain
Gonna see my baby
And I ain't coming back
No, I ain't coming back.

Chorus:
Roll on buddy
Don't you roll so slow
How can I roll
When the wheels won't go.

Roll on buddy
Pull a load of coal
How can I pull
When the wheels won't roll.

This nine pound hammer
Is a little too heavy for my size
Buddy for my size.

I'm going on the mountain
Gonna see my baby
And I ain't coming back
No, I ain't coming back.

Chorus:
Roll on buddy
Don't you roll so slow
How can I roll
When the wheels won't go.

Roll on buddy
Pull a load of coal
How can I pull
When the wheels won't roll..

And when I'm long gone
You can make my tombstone
Out of number nine coal
Out of number nine coal.

Chorus:
Roll on buddy
Don't you roll so slow
How can I roll
When the wheels won't go.

Roll on buddy
Pull a load of coal
How can I pull
When the wheels won't roll.

Now, when I'm long gone
You can make my tombstone
Out of number nine coal
Out of number nine coal...
