lyrics

Old Bill

Oh, Bill don't you lay your hammer down.
You'll see there's enough work
to get your big hands around.
Take that steel rail
and pin it in the ground
don't ever lay your hammer down.

Oh, Bill hit that spike right on the head
going to make that wood
wail and all the metal dread
there's not a man that can
replace you when you're dead.
don't ever lay your hammer down.

INSTRUMENTAL:

BRIDGE:
Can't you hear that lonesome call?
The engineer swears that all God's angels fall.
Can't you hear that hollow moan?
A coal fire train is calling you…

Oh, Bill went ahead and laid his hammer down
Wandered off into the night
no tracks on the ground.
They still have his suitcase
at the tavern in town
where the boys drink and pass Bill's hammer 'round.
