The Hammer Song

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Carter Sisters:
Take this hammer
Carry it to the captain
Take this hammer
Carry it to the captain
Take this hammer
Carry it to the captain
Tell him I’m gone
Boys, tell him I’m gone

If he asks you
Was I running
If he asks you
Was I running
If he asks you
Was I running
Tell him I was a flying
Lord, tell him I was a flying

Take this hammer
Carry it to the captain
Take this hammer
Carry it to the captain
Take this hammer
Carry it to the captain
Tell him I’m gone
Boys, tell him I’m gone

I don’t want your
Cornbread and molasses
I don’t want your
Cornbread and molasses
I don’t want your
Cornbread and molasses
Nurse my pride
June: For it makes me sick

Take this hammer
Carry it to the captain
Take this hammer
Carry it to the captain
Take this hammer
Carry it to the captain
Tell him I’m gone
Boys, tell him I’m gone

I don’t want your
Cold iron shackles
I don’t want your
Cold iron shackles
I don’t want your
Cold iron shackles
It hurts my leg
Oh, it hurts my leg

Take this hammer
Carry it to the captain
Take this hammer
Carry it to the captain
Take this hammer
Carry it to the captain
Tell him I’m gone Boys, tell him I’m gone
