Brothers Osborne – Big Spike Hammer lyrics

Can't you hear the ripple on my big spike hammer
Lord it's bustin' my side
I've done all I can do to keep that woman
Still she's not satisfied

Hey hey Delta May why do you treat me this-a-way
Hey hey Delta May I'll get even some day

I'm the best hammer swinger in this big section game
Big Bill Johnson is my name
Lord the hammer that I swing for a dollar and a half a day
It's all for my Delta May

Hey hey Delta May...
[ banjo ]
Now I've been lots of polaces not much I ain't done
There's still lotta things I'd like to see
Beats that hammer that I swing or the woman I love
One's gonna be the death of me

Hey hey Delta May...
Big spike hammer big spike hammer
