"Hello there, John Henry, how do you feel today?"
"Very sorry to say, Lord, Lord, feel my left side givin' away, hey gal
Feel my left side givin' a-(guitar finishes line)
Feel my left side givin' away."

Well, who been here since I been gone?
Well, who gonna kiss your rosy cheeks?
Well, who gonna shoe your cozy feet?

John Henry's woman, Lord, she talked so fair
"Get my shoes from a steel-drivin' man
Kisses from a millionaire, hey gal
Kisses from a million-(guitar finishes line)
Kisses from a millionaire."

Well, who's been here since I been gone?
Well, who's gonna kiss your rosy cheeks?
Well, who's gonna shoe your cozy feet?
Who's gonna be your man? Who's gonna be your man?

John Henry's woman, name was Polly Ann
Day she heard John Henry died
She drove steel like some man, hey gal
She drove steel like some (guitar finishes line)

John Henry went up on the mountain, where he looked all around
"If I had a twenty pound hammer, beat a little steel back on down
Beat a little steel back on (guitar finishes line)
Well, I beat a little steel back on down."

Well, who been here since I been gone?
Well, who gonna kiss your rosy cheeks?
Who's gonna be your man?
Who's gonna shoe your cozy feet?

John Henry asked his captain, "When are you goin' to town?
If you bring me a twenty pound hammer, beat a little steel back on down
Beat a little steel back on down."

Who been here since I been gone?
Well, who gonna kiss your rosy cheeks?
Well, who gonna shoe your cozy feet?
Who's gonna be your man? Who's gonna be your man?"

Early in the morning, 'bout the break of day
Heard a voice in the wilderness, cryin, "Well, my side givin' away
Well, my left side givin' away."
