John Henry is an African American folk hero. He is said to have worked as a "steel-driving man"-a man tasked with hammering a steel drill into rock to make holes for explosives to blast the rock in constructing a railroad tunnel. According to legend, John Henry's prowess as a steel-driver was measured in a race against a steam-powered rock drilling machine, a race that he won only to die in victory with hammer in hand as his heart gave out from stress

John Henry told his captain "A man ain't nothing but a man But before I let your steam drill beat me down I'd die with a hammer in my hand, Lord, Lord I'd die with a hammer in my hand". John Henry said to his shaker "Shaker, why don't you sing? I'm throwin' thirty pounds from my hips on down Just listen to that cold steel ring, Lord, Lord Just listen to that cold steel ring". John Henry said to his shaker "Shaker, you'd better pray 'Cause if I miss that little piece of steel Tomorrow be your buryin' day, Lord, Lord Tomorrow.

These days aint so easy mama gotta watch your back I take my whiskey straight chewin’ on pieces from my past. And I’m no John Henry I do my best With this guitar strapped to my back child, I’m headed west. Go to sleep when the sun comes up now on this deadbeat town. Come alive in the moonlight mama when that sun goes down. And I’m no John Henry I do my best With this guitar strapped to my back child I’m headed west.

I won't dance, don't ask me I won't dance, don't ask me I won't dance, Madame, with you My heart won't let my feet do things that they should do. You know what?, you're lovely You know what?, you're so lovely And, oh, what you do to me I'm like an ocean wave that's bumped on the shore I feel so absolutely stumped on the floor. When you dance, you're charming and you're gentle 'specially when you do the Continental But this feeling isn't purely mental For, heaven rest us, I am not asbestos  . and that's why I won't dance, I won't dance I won't dance, merci beaucoup I know that music leads the way to romance So if I hold you in arms I won't dance!!
