"Nine Pound Hammer" as written by and Merle Travis....
Well this nine pound hammer is a little too heavy for my size honey for my size
I'm goin' on the mountain gonna see my baby
And I ain't comin' back Lord I ain't comin' back
Oh roll on buddy don't you roll so slow how can I go when my wheels won't roll
Roll on buddy pull a load o'coal how can I go when my wheels won't roll

Well it's a long way to Harlem it's a long way to Hazzard
Just to get a little brew just to get a little brew
Now when I'm long gone you can make my tombstone
Out of number nine coal out of number nine coal
Roll on buddy
