john henry when he was a baby
sittin on his momma's knee
picked up a hammer in his little right hand and said
this hammer'll be the death of me
john got him a job as a steel driving man
no one can drive like he can
he worked his whole life as hard as he can he was
born to be a steel driving man
the capatin said john henry, boy, you think you're pretty mean
give me a dozen more swings or i'll replace you with a machine
john henry said captain, man ain't but a man
i've done give you all i got why don't you bring that steam drill on it
beat your steam drill down
