Red Sovine — Take This Hammer lyrics

Take this hammer take it to the captain take this hammer take it to the captain
Take this hammer take it to the captain tell him I'm gone tell him I'm gone

If he asks you was I runnin' if he asks you was I runnin'
If he asks you was I runnin' tell him I's flyin' tell him I's flyin'

Tell the captain I was headed for the river tell the captain I was headed for the river
Tell the captain I was headed for the river tell him I swim tell him I swim
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/red-sovine-take-this-hammer-lyrics.html ]
Take this hammer take it to the captain take this hammer take it to the captain
Take this hammer take it to the captain tell him I'm gone gone gone tell him I'm gone

When that steamboat comes down the river when that steamboat comes down the river
When that steamboat comes down the river I'm a gonna swim when it comes by

Twenty-five miles in Mississippi twenty-five miles in Mississippi
Twenty-five miles in Mississippi tell him I'm gone gone gone tell him I'm gone

Take this hammer take it to the captain take this hammer take it to the captain
Take this hammer take it to the captain tell him I'm gone tell him I'm gone
