Take This Hammer
Traditional - Lead Belly, Brownie McGhee & Sonny Terry

(spoken: You gonna hear these hammers fall as these boys sing and swing
Take this hammer and give it to the man)

  Take this hammer, wah, carry it to the captain, wah (3)
  You tell’em I’m gone (2)

If they ask you, was I runnin’ (3)
You tell’em, I was flyin’ (2)

If they ask you, was I laughin’ (3)
You tell’em, I was cryin’ (2)

I don’t want no cold iron shackles (3)
Around my leg (2)

I don’t want know corn bread, peas and molasses (3)
Hurts my pride(2)
