Old John Henry Died on the Mountain-Henry Grady Terrell
Sung a capella

John Henry died on the mountain
John Henry died on the mountain
He was a-whupping steel, a-whupping steel
Oh partner, he was a-whupping steel

I ain't gon' tell nobody my right name
I ain't gon' tell nobody my right name
My name is Sam, my name is Sam
And I don't give a --
Oh partner, and I don't give a --

Anybody aks you, was I runnin'
Anybody aks you, was I runnin'
Now, tell 'em no, no, I was flyin'
Oh partner, you know I was flyin'

I run 'cross Blue Ridge Mountain
I run 'cross that Blue Ridge Mountain
When the sun went down, when the sun went down
Oh captain, a-when the sun went down
