"John Henry and the Old North Wind" as written by and Joe Purdy....
Come in, come in John Henry
Come in out of the cold
Cause that old north wind is callin'
But it ain't time for you to go

Sit down, Miss Pollyanna
Please wait for my return
Cause that old north wind is callin'
But my love for you still burns

Don't go, don't go John Henry
Please lay down your hammer today
Cause that old north wind is callin'
And she'll put you in the grave

Don't worry Pollyanna
You know that I can't stay home
But if that old north wind comes callin'
I will fight her like a hammer to stone

Come quick, Miss Pollyanna
John Henry was taken today
And that old north wind came callin'
He was still fighting as he faded away
