This Old Hammer

Lyrics

(Folk song)

1. This old hammer shine like silver,
shine like gold, boys, shine like gold.
Well this old hammer shine like silver,
shine like gold, boys, shine like gold.

2. Well don’t you hear that hammer ringing? Drivin’ in steel, boys, drivin’ in steel.

3. Can’t find a hammer on this mountain, Rings like mine, boys, rings like mine.

4. I’ve been working on this old mountain Seven long years, boys, seven long years.

5. I’m going back to Swannanoa Town-o, That’s my home, boys, that’s my home.

6. Take this hammer, give it to the captain, Tell him I’m gone, boys, tell him I’m gone.
