Nine Pound Hammer   Bill Monroe




	Nine Pound Hammer

 (G) Oh the nine pound hammer, is a little too (C) heavy,
for my (D) size, yes, for my (G) size.
Roll on buddy, don't you roll so (C) slow,
how can you (D) roll, when the wheels won't (G) go.


 (G) Oh the eight pound hammer, in this (C) tunnel,
let it ring like (D) mine, let it ring like (G) mine.
Rings like silver, and it shines like (C) gold,
Rings like (D) silver, and it shines like (G) gold,


 (G) The nine pound hammer, that killed John (C) Henry,
ain't gonna kill (D) me, ain't gonna kill (G) me.
Roll on buddy, don't you roll so (C) slow,
how can you (D) roll, when the wheels won't (G) go.


 (G) Now somebody stole, my nine pound (C) hammer,
they took it and (D) gone, they took it and (G) gone.
Roll on buddy, don't you roll so (C) slow,
how can you (D) roll, when the wheels won't (G) go.
