Well, John Henry was a little baby
Sittin' on his dady's knee
He pick up a hammer and a little piece of steel,
And cried, "Hammer's gonna be
(William "Smokey" Robinson) 
John Henry was born
At the crack of dawn
His mama named Henry
And a daddy named John
His daddy predicted that
JOHN HENRY

John Henry was a little bitty boy sittin' on his mommy's knee
When he picked up a hammer
Who killed John Henry, In the battle of sinners and saints
Who killed John Henry, In the battle of sinners and saints

Take this hammer carry it
Who killed John Henry , In the battle of sinners and saints
Who killed John Henry , In the battle of sinners and saints

Take this hammer carry it
When John Henry was a little bitty boy
He picked up a hammer in his hand
Looked up at his mama and smilingly said
I want to be a steel drivin' man
John Henry was about three days old,
Sittin' on his papa's knee.
He picked up a hammer and a little piece of steel;
Said, "Hammer's gonna be
John Henry was about three days old,
Sittin' on his papa's knee.
He picked up a hammer and a little piece of steel;
Said, "Hammer's gonna be
John Henry was about three days old,
Sittin' on his papa's knee.
He picked up a hammer and a little piece of steel;
Said, "Hammer's gonna be
John Henry was a steel drivin' boy
But he went down
Yes, he went down
He went down

Take my hammer and give it to the capt'n
Boys, tell him I'm
Who killed john Henry, in the battle of sinners and saints
Who killed john Henry, in the battle of sinners and saints

Take this hammer carry it
When John Henry was just a little bitty boy no bigger than the palm of your hand
His mommy looked down at John Henry and say
Well Johnny you're gonna
John Henry was just a little bitty boy
No bigger than the palm of your hand
His mammy looked down at John Henry and say
Johnny you're gonna be
Well John Henry was a little baby
Sittin' on his daddy's knee
He picked up a hammer and
a little piece of steel
And cried, "Hammer's gonna
be
John Henry and they told me if they let me read this old book I'd
Probably write a song about it. 
And they did and I did and I called it more About
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,
When John Henry was a little baby
Sittin' on his mama's knee
Well he picked up a feather and a piece of steel
And said that's gonna be the death
When John Henry was a little baby
Sittin' on his mama's knee
Well he picked up a feather and a piece of steel
And said that's gonna be the death
John Henry he could hammer,
He could whistle, he could sing
He went to the mountain early in the mornin'
Just to hear his hammer ring, Lord, Lord
John Henry was born
At the crack of dawn
His mama named Henry
And a daddy named John
His daddy predicted that
While John was growin'
He would
filtered through a million liars.
The whole world smelled like burning tires the day John Henry died.

We knew about that big machine that ran on human
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
come through
Well-well, the 'right-left' that Joe Louis was usin'
Hoo-well, man
Give John Henry, Louis's head the blues, now

Well-well, then Joe's
John Henry was about three days old,
Sittin' on his papa's knee.
He picked up a hammer and a little piece of steel;
Said, "Hammer's gonna be
John Henry was about three days old,
Sittin' on his papa's knee.
He picked up a hammer and a little piece of steel;
Said, "Hammer's gonna be
