Spike Driver Blues-Mississippi John Hurt

Take this hammer and carry it to my captain
Tell him I'm gone
Tell him I'm gone
Tell him I'm gone

Take this hammer and carry it to my captain
Tell him I'm gone
Just tell him I'm gone
I'm sure he's gone

This is the hammer that killed John Henry
But it won't kill me
But it won't kill me
But it won't kill me

This is the hammer that killed John Henry
But it won't kill me
But it won't kill me
Ain't gon' kill me

It's a long ways from East Colorado
Honey, to my home
Honey, to my home
Honey, to my home

It's a long ways to East Colorado
Honey, to my home
Honey, to my home
That's where I'm goin'

John Henry, he left his hammer
Layin' 'side the road
Layin' 'side the road
Layin' 'side the road

John Henry, he left his hammer
All in red
All over in red
That's why I'm gone

John Henry 's a steel-drivin' boy
But he went down
But he went down
But he went down

John Henry was a steel-drivin' boy
But he went down
But he went down
That's why I'm gone
