Go down Emanuel Road, man and boy
Got to break that stone
Go down Emanuel Road, man and boy
Got to break that stone

Well, the moon still in the sky
An' the sleep still in you eye
But when you hear me sing
You better make dem hammers ring

Wake up and go down Emanuel Road, man and boy
Got to break that stone
Go down Emanuel Road, man and boy
Got to break that stone

Well, you had a big time last night
And some of your heads are tight
But when I call this roll, please Lord
I don't want to miss a soul

So get up and go down Emanuel Road, man and boy
Got to break that stone
Go down Emanuel Road, man and boy
Got to break that stone

When you break dem one by one
But man you just begun
'Cause today, I tell you something new
You gotta break dem two by two

So come on and go down Emanuel Road, man and boy
Got to break that stone
Go down Emanuel Road, man and boy
Got to break that stone

Well, I tell you man, if you good
You better chop dat stone like wood
Then tomorrow gonna be a big day
You get another shilling in you pay

'Cause from sun to sun you gotta stick
And don't tell me 'bout you sick
I want you to do your best
To night you better let them women rest

So you can get up and go down Emanuel Road, man and boy
Got to break that stone
Go down Emanuel Road, man and boy
Got to break that stone
