This nine - pound ham - mer,  Is a lit - tle too heav - y,
Bud - dy, for my size,  Bud - dy, for my size.
Went on the moun - tain, Just to see my ba - by,
And I ain't comin' back,  And I ain't comin' back.
It's a long way to Haz - ard,  It's a long way to Har - lan,
Just to get a little booze,  Just to get a little booze,
So, roll on bud - dy,  Don't you roll so slow,
How can I roll,  When the wheels won't go?
