Swing That Hammer  Lonesome River Band

Swing th[C]at hammer, break that rock, Lord, that ol' sun is hot
And the sh[F]ackles that I w[G]ear fit too t[C]ight
[C]I ain't see nobody smile out on this ol' rock pile
And they'll k[F]nock you down if you d[G]on't do it r[C]ight
[C]Now hard times go so slow, and I've got ten to go
I'm a nu[F]mber now, [G]I don't have a n[C]ame
[C]But there ain't no need to whine, This ball and chain is mine
There ain'[F]t no way to s[G]top this burnin' p[C]ain
[C]At night old memories show, Cold steel is so cold
It's lon[F]esome time when t[G]hey turn out the li[C]ght
[C]These walls are grim and gray, Tomorrow's another day
To s[F]wing my hammer d[G]own with all my m[C]ight
