Townes Van Zandt — Nine Pound Hammer lyrics

This nine pound hammer, it's a little too heavy
For my size, honey, for my size
I'm goin on the mountain, gonna see my baby
But I ain't comin' back, no, I ain't comin' back

Chorus
Roll on buddy, don't you roll too slow
How can I roll, when the wheels won't go
Roll on buddy, pull a load of coal
How can I pull, when the wheels won't roll

Well, it's a long way to harlan, it's a long way to hazard
Just to get a little brew, just to get a little brew
Well, when I'm long gone you can make my tombstone
Outta number nine coal, outta number nine coal

[Chorus:]

(inst. Break)

[Chorus:]
