Lyrics of John Henry

John Henry when he was a baby
Sittin' on his mammy's knee
Picked up a hammer in that little right hand
Said hammer'll be the death of me me me
Hammer'll be the death of me
Hammer'll be the death of me me me
Hammer'll be the death of me
Well there's some said he's born down in Texas
Some said he's born up in Maine
I just said he was a Louisiana man
Was a leader of a steel driving chain gang
Leader of a steel driving gang
Leader of a steel driving chain gang
Leader of a steel driving gang
Now the captain said to John Henry what did he say
I'm a gonna bring my steam drill 'round
Gonna bring my steam drill out on this job
Gonna whup that steel on down down down whup that steel on down
I'm gonna whup that steel on down down down
I'm gonna whup that steel on down
John Henry said to the captain what did he say
Bring your steam drill 'round you can bring your steam drill out on the job
I'm gonna beat your steam drill down down down beat your steam drill down
Gonna beat your steam drill down down down
Gonna beat your steam drill down
John Henry said to his shaker shaker you had better pray
If you miss your six foot of steel
Tomorrow'll be your buryin' day day day
Tomorrow'll be your buryin' day
Now the shaker said to John Henry
Well a man ain't nothin' but a man
I'm throwin' a hundred pounds from my hips on down
Doin' all that any man can can can
Doin' all that any man can
Doin' all that any man can can can
I'm a doin' all that any man can
John Henry had a little woman her name was Polly Anne
John Henry took sick and was laid up in bed
While Polly handled steel like a man man man
Polly handled steel like a man
Polly handled steel like a man man man
Polly handled steel like a man
They took John Henry to the graveyard
Laid him down in the sand
Every locomotive comin' and rollin' by by by
Hollered there lies a steel drivin' man man man
There lies a steel drivin' man
There lies a steel drivin' man man man
There lies a steel drivin' man
