Schwa Lyrics

Nine Pound Hammer

Lyricist: John Prine
Vocalist: Cliff Starbuck
This nine pound hammer
Is a little too heavy
Buddy for my size
Buddy for my size
So Im going on the mountain
Just to see my baby
And I aint coming back
No I aint coming back


Roll on buddy
Dont you roll so slow
Well, tell me how can I roll
When the wheels wont go
Roll on buddy
Pull you load of coal
Tell me how can I pull
When the wheels wont roll

Its a long way to harlan
Its a long way to hazard
Just to get a little brew
Just to get a little brew

And when Im long gone
You can make my tombstone
Out of number nine coal
Out of number nine coal
