—— folk family and jam

Take this hammer

Workin on the railroad at a dollar a day
You take my money, then you fade away

Oh this hammer ring like silver
Shine like gold oh buddy it shine like gold

Well this hammer killed John Henry
Won't kille me oh buddy, it won't kill me

Take this hammer, take it to the captain
Tell I'm gone tell him I'm gone

If he ask you was I running
Tell him I was flying tell him I was flying

From  Jesse Fuller, no doubt.
