Take This Hammer
Traditional



Chords


Song

chorus:

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, just tell him I'm gone.

1.

If he asks you, was I running, (x3)
Tell him I was flying, tell him I was flying.

2.

I don't want your cold iron shackles (x3)
It hurts my leg, hurts my leg.

3.

If he asks you was I laughin', (x3)
Tell him I was cryin', tell him I was cryin'.

4.

I don't want no cornbread and molasses, (x3)
But I got my pride, well I got my pride.

5.

I don't want no greenback dollar, (x3)
It hurts my pride, hurts my pride.
