NINE POUND HAMMER
MERLE TRAVIS/JOHNNY CASH
First Position

This can be used on any harp key.  It uses the
lower notes on the harp.

I have it in G, because that's the key I play
it in; with guitar chords.

Turnaround to next verse.
G G7 Am7 D7

This nine pound hammer is a little too heavy
For my size, buddy, for my size.
I'm a- goin' on the mountain for to see my baby
An' I ain't comin' back. Lord, I ain't comin' back.

CHORUS:
Oh,Roll on buddy! Don't you roll so slow.
How'm I gonna roll, when the wheels won't go.
Roll on buddy! Pull a load of coal
How'm I gonna pull, when the wheels won't roll.

It's a long way to Harlan, it's a long way to Hazard
Just to get a little brew, just to get a little brew.
Well when I'm long gone,you can make my tombstone
Out of number nine coal, out of number nine coal.
(CHORUS)

Ain't nobody's hammer on this here mountain
Rings like mine, that rings like mine.
An' this old hammer rings like silver
Rings like silver, rings like gold.
(CHORUS)

Well this old hammer, it killed John Henry
Killed John Henry, but it won't kill me.
This nine pound hammer is a little too heavy
For my size, buddy, for my size.
(CHORUS)

Various versions will have the lyrics of the
verses arranged differently. This is the way that
I generally sing it.
