Hugh Laurie – The Legend Of John Henry lyrics

John henry, had a little woman,
And the dress she wore was red,
She walked down the track, she never looked back,
"I'm going where John Henry fell Dead"...
"I'm going where John Henry fell Dead".

John Henry had another women,
And her name was Polly Ane,
John Henry was taken sick,
And he had to go to?
Polly Anne drove steel like a man...
Polly Anne drove steel like a man.

John Henry told his little woman,
"Hunny fix, hunny fix my supper soon",
Iv got 99 miles of track I wanna lay back,
I'm gonna lay them by the light of the moon...
I'm gonna lay them by the light of the moon.

Instrumental

John Henry said to his captain
You know a man aint nothing but a man,
I'm betting right now, you wont beat me down,
I'm gonna die with my hammer in my hand...
I'm gonna die with my hammer in my hand.

John Henry hammered in the mountain,
Until his hammer caught on fire,
The last words I heard, That the poor boy said,
Give me a cool drink of water before I die,
You give me a cool drink of water before I die,
Give me a cool drink of water before I die,
Give me a cool drink of water before I die,
Give me a cool drink of water before I die,
You give me a cool drink of water before I die,
Give me a cool drink of water before I die.
