G - C -
D7 - G -     (repeat all)
8-beat intro. Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This ninepound hammer,  Is a little too heavy,
Buddy, for my size,  Buddy, for my size.
Went on the mountain, Just to see my baby,
And I ain't comin' back,  And I ain't comin' back.
It's a long way to Hazard,  It's a long way to Harlan,
Just to get a little booze,  Just to get a little booze,
So, roll on buddy,  Don't you roll so slow,
How can I roll,  When the wheels won't go?
