This nine pound hammer is a little too heavy
For my size oh baby for my size
I'm goin' on the mountain I gotta see my baby
And I ain't comin' back no I ain't comin' back
Say roll on buddy don't you roll so slow
How can I go when the wheels won't roll
Say roll on buddy pull a load o'coal
How can I go when the wheels won't roll
[ guitar ]
Well it's a long way to Harlan and a long way to Hazzard
Just to get a little brew just to get a little brew
Now when I'm long gone baby make my tombstone
Out of number nine coal out of number nine coal
Say roll on buddy...
[ steel ]
Say roll on buddy...
