Lonnie Donegan - John Henry lyrics

John Henry told his little woman Honey cook my supper soon I've got ninety miles of track I'm gonna line 'em by the light of the moon I'm gonna line 'em by the light of the moon Spoken: John Henry was a steel driver He was the best in the land And he'd die with his hammer in his hand I'll tell you all about him now John Henry told his captain You know a man ain't nothin' but a man But before I let your steam drill beat me down I'm gonna die with my hammer in my hand I'm gonna die with my hammer in my hand John Henry told to his captain You know a man ain't nothin' but a man But before I let your steam drill beat me down I'm gonna die with my hammer in my hand I'm gonna die with my hammer in my hand John Henry had another woman And the dress that she wore was red Oh she studies the track lord she never looked back I'm going where John Henry lies dead I'm going where John Henry lies dead John Henry went down to Washington ..... ..... them in the sand And the people from the East and people from the west Ain't seen such a steel driving man Ain't seen such a steel driving man But if some say he's from England And some say he's from France No he's nothing but a Louisiana man A leader of the steel driving gang A leader of the steel driving gang
