Workin on a new railroad mud up to my knees
Workin on a new railroad mud up to my knees
I'm working for big john henry and he's so hard to please
I've been all around this world

Used to have a big grey horse arrow was his name
Used to have a big grey horse arrow was his name
They caught me making liquor and they told me get off their plain
I've been all around this world

Hang me oh hang me and I'll be dead and gone
Hang me oh hang me and I'll be dead and gone
It's not the hanging that I mind it's laying in the grave so long
I've been all around this world

Single girl single girl go spend your days in town
Single girl single girl go spend your days in town
Just wait til you get married you'll work till the sun goes down
I've been all around this world

Lulu oh lulu won't you open up that door
Lulu oh lulu won't you open up that door
Before I come and open it with my old 44
I've been all around this world

Diggin on a new railroad mud up to my knees
Diggin on a new railroad mud up to my knees
Diggin for big john henry and he's so hard to please
I've been all around this world
Been all around this world
I've been all around this world
