Take this hammer, carry it to the captain
Take this hammer, carry it to the captain
Take this hammer, carry it to the captain
Tell him I'm a-gone, just tell him I'm a gone

If he asks you, was I running
If he asks you, was I running
If he asks you, was I running
Tell him I was flying, tell him I was flying

I don't want your old darn shackles
I don't want your old darn shackles
I don't want your old darn shackles
It hurts my leg, hurts my leg

I don't want no greenback dollar
I don't want no greenback dollar
I don't want no greenback dollar
It hurts my pride, hurts my pride
