      Woody Guthrie - John Henry Música y Letra

      John Henry when he was a baby
      settin' on his mammy's knee
      picked up an hammer in his little right hand
      Said "Hammer be the death of me me me,
      hammer be the death of me!"
      Some say he's born in Texas
      Some say he's born up in Maine
      I just say he was a Louisiana man
      Leader of a steel-driving chain gang
      leader on a steel-driving gang
      
      "Well", the captain said to John Henry
      "I'm gonna bring my steam drill around
      gonna whup that steel on down down down
      whup that steel on down!"
      John Henry said to the captain (what he say?)
      "You can bring your steam drill around
      gonna bring my steam drill out on the job
      I'll beat your steam drill down down down
      beat your steam drill down!"
      John Henry said to his Shaker
      "Shaker you had better pray
      If you miss your six feet of steel
      It'll be your buryin' day day day
      It'll be your buryin' day!"
      
      Now the Shaker said to John Henry
      "Man ain't nothing but a man
      but before I'd let that steam drill beat me down
      I'd die with an hammer in my hand hand hand
      I'd die with an hammer in my hand!"
      
      John Henry had a little woman
      Her name was Polly Anne
      John Henry took sick and was laid up in bed
      While Polly handled steel like a man man man
      Polly handled steel like a man.
      They took John Henry to the graveyard
      laid him down in the sand
      Every locomotive comin' a-rolling by by by
      hollered "there lies a steel-drivin' man man man
      there lies a steel-drivin' man!"
