Townes Van Zandt Nine pound hammer (Merle Travis) Lyrics

Last updated:

This Nine Pound Hammer,
Is a little too heavy,
For my side, baby for my side.

I'm a-goin' to the mountain,
Gonna see my baby.
But i ain't comin' back,
No. I ain't comin' back.

Roll on, buddy,
Don't ya roll so slow.
How, can I roll,
When my wheels won't go.

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.

When I'm long gone,
Don't you make my tombstone,
Outta number nine coal,
Outta number nine coal.
