This nine pound hammer is a little too heavy it's for my size honey for my size
Roll on buddy don't you roll so slow baby how can I roll when the wheels won't go
[ dobro ]
I'm goin' on the mountain gonna see my baby
But I ain't a comin' back Lord I ain't a comin' back
Roll on buddy don't you roll so slow baby how can I roll when the wheels won't go
[ fiddle ]
It's a long way to Hazzard and a long way to Harlan
Just to get a little brew just to get a little brew
Roll on buddy don't you roll so slow baby how can I roll when the wheels won't go
[ banjo ]
Now when I'm long gone you can make my tombstone
Out of number nine coal out of number nine coal
Roll on buddy pull a load o'coal baby how can I go when my wheels won't go
[ dobro ]
This nine pound hammer...
