Notting Hillbillies – Take This Hammer lyrics
TAKE THIS HAMMER
The Notting Hillibilies
Take this hammer, carry it to the captain, (3x)
Tell him I'm gone, tell him I'm gone.
If he ask you was I runnin' (3x)
Tell him I'm flyin'.
If he ask you was I laughin',
Tell him I was cryin'.
I don't want no cold iron shackles,
Around my leg.
I don't want no cornbread and molasses,
They hurt my pride.
I'm go'n' make these few days I started,
Then I'm goin' home.
