Well, I can hear the hammer ringin'
On somebody coffin
I can hear the hammer ringin', Lord
On somebody coffin
Well, I can hear the hammer ringin'
On-a somebody coffin

Way over, over on my new buryin' ground

A well, it must have been my captain
(Must-a have been my captain, Lordy)
The people was-a buryin'
(Must have been my captain, Lordy)
Must-a have been my captain, Lord
(Must have been my captain, Lordy)
The people were buryin'
(Must-a been my captain, Lordy)
Ooo-ooo-ooo
