Nine-Pound Hammer

This nine-pound hammer is just a little too heavy
Buddy, for my size, buddy, for my size

    Roll on buddy, don't you roll so slow
    How can I roll when the wheels won't go

Ain't nobody's hammer in this mountain
That rings like mine, that rings like mine

I went upon the mountain just to see my honey
And I ain't lookin' back, Lord, I ain't lookin' back

It's a long way to Harlan, it's a long way to Hazard
Just to get a little booze, just to get a little booze
